Leicester Tigers welcome the Ospreys to Welford Road on Friday in the final leg of preparations for the start of the new Aviva Premiership season.

The two sides met a fortnight ago in Swansea in the first pre-season fixture, with the Welsh side emerging as 26-21 winners before Tigers beat Treviso 33-10 in Italy last weekend.
Now, with the league season just a week away, the old rivals meet in the return fixture.
This match is included in Tigers season tickets. All matches in the new season will be loaded on to existing season ticket cards unless you have changed seats or price category, in which case a new card will be supplied.
Tickets for all other supporters are available now.

If you are picking up any pre-paid match tickets on your way to the game, the Collection Point is based on the plaza outside main reception.
Turnstiles open at 6.15pm, together with food kiosks and bars around the stadium.
