Leicester Tigers face two fixtures this Friday in the final leg of preparations for the start of the new Aviva Premiership season.

Welford Road hosts a visit from the Ospreys in the final pre-season fixture of the summer at 7.45pm, while Tigers also welcome Nottingham Rugby for a match at the Oval park training ground at 4pm.
Tigers met the Ospreys a fortnight ago in Swansea, with the Welsh side emerging as 26-21 winners in the opening fixture of the pre-season programme and followed up last weekend with a 33-10 victory over Benetton Treviso in Italy.
Now, with the league season just a week away, Tigers and Ospreys 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.
Book in person at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or click here to book online. The ticket office will be open right up to kick-off.
