Matchday guide: Tigers versus London Welsh

Figure image
Welford Road hosts a vital Aviva Premiership fixture on Saturday when Leicester Tigers face London Welsh in the penultimate home game of the league season. Kick-off is at 3pm and tickets are still available.As this game is not scheduled for any live television coverage, the only place to see all of the action is at Welford Road. With just one more home game remaining in the league programme, make sure you don’t miss out.   Remaining tickets for Saturday are available now from the Tigers ticket office. The office is open 8.30am-5pm weekdays and from 9am up to kick-off on Saturday. Call in or phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2). Or book online any time by clicking here.   If you have pre-ordered any tickets, these will be available at the Collection Point outside the MET-Rx Stand on matchday and not at the ticket office.   Turnstiles, all food and refreshments outlets in the stadium and the Junior Tigers Club VIP area open from 1pm and there is now also a sweets stall on the plaza.   From this weekend, Tigers bars will add Singha beer, a new partner of Premiership Rugby, to the drinks options.   The Junior Tigers Club area of Final Whistle is open from 1pm with activities for younger supporters. JTC membership is free and you can sign up at Welford Road or on the club website.   We will be joined in Final Whistle by a team from Leicester Arts & Museums Service who want to meet supporters ahead of the ‘Leicester Rugby, Leicester People’ exhibition which will be based at Newarke Houses Museum from September 2015 until next April, exploring the stories and history of Leicester through its love of the game of rugby.     If you have stories to tell or memorabilia you think they should know about, please contact them in advance of Saturday. If you want more information about the project and how you can get involved, email Catherine Hallsworth at [email protected] or phone Philip French on 0116 225 4979.   If this is your first Tigers matchday – or you are bringing someone new – there is a chance to win a great prize too. As part of the ‘My First Matchday’ you can sign up a first-time visitor by clicking here. Or speak to a Games Keeper at the stadium and you will go into a prize draw to win a bag of Tigers goodies.   First-time visitors can also pick up a My First Matchday certificate signed by club captain Ed Slater from Games Keepers who form part of the customer services team.   The Tigers Club Store is open all day with special offers on kit, leisurewear and souvenirs. There is a pop-up shop on the plaza and merchandise units inside the MET-Rx Stand after the turnstiles have opened.   This week’s 100-page matchday programme includes an interview with European Cup hero Leon Lloyd about life after rugby, plus an in-depth look at the Aviva Premiership run-in, Matt Hampson’s Heroes & Villains column with Geoff Parling, and all the news and views from inside Welford Road.
