Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints meet for the first time this season at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Saturday (3.00pm).

There is live coverage of the game with BT Sport 3HD as games remain behind closed doors due to regulations around the Covid pandemic.

Tigers season ticket holders without a subscription can apply for a BT Sport Match Pass to follow the action. Full details will be in your email baskets now from the Tigers ticket office. If you have not received any details, phone the office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2) before matchday.

You can also keep in touch with the club’s Matchday Live Service and vote for your Fans’ Favourite using the Tigers App. Make sure you’ve downloaded the most recent app update (Apple 2.11.0 or Android 36) to receive all of the latest news and info ahead of every matchday. 

Although supporters are unable to attend, we would love to see ‘virtual’ support from elsewhere and all supporters can share #TigersAtHome pictures using Tigers Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Team news is announced at noon on Friday and there will be build-up throughout the day and on Saturday morning, with full reaction afterwards on the Tigers website and social media pages.

A link to the online edition of the programme is distributed to season ticket holders on Friday, with the issue then loaded on to the website on matchday morning. All of the online editions are available free on the website if you’ve missed any.

This week’s pages include a pictorial celebration of the Tigers Family, a look back to the very first Tigers-Saints fixture back in 1880, all the facts and stats behind the team and the views from inside the camp.

Please note that although the Club Shop in the Robin Hood Stand is now open again to visitors and for Click-and-collect orders, it will remain closed on matchdays when access to the stadium has to be restricted in line with government guidelines. The shop and ticket office services continue to be available online.
