Figure image
Welford Road hosts the game of the day in the Aviva Premiership this Saturday when Leicester Tigers and Harlequins meet for the first time since last season's Grand Final. Kick-off is at 5.30pm and tickets are still available.

In the first part of a home double – Tigers host Exeter Chiefs in Round 5 next weekend – two of this season's unbeaten teams meet in an intriguing encounter.

Defending champions Quins have maximum points from the opening three rounds, while Tigers have two wins and a draw going into Round 4.

Turnstiles for the match, together with the Junior Tigers Clubin Final Whistle and all bars and food kiosks, open at 3.30pm.

Welford Road is the first sports stadium in the UK to have a Domino's Ready 2 Go pizza outlet and one lucky pizza purchaser can win matchday hospitality for four people worth £750. Just look out for a Domino's Golden Ticket in your pizza box.

The Domino's outlet is on the top floor of the Caterpillar Stand, and this Saturday we’re opening a second ‘pop up’ unit on the ground floor. Domino's Pizza sellers also circulate inside the stadium.

Everyone who buys a pizza will receive a money-off voucher to purchase again at the match against Exeter Chiefs next Saturday.

Other new matchday catering options around the stadium include Flaming Good Burger, Frank’s New York Street Hot-Dogs, Henry’s Chicken and there is a Hog Roast stand in the Final Whistle.

Find out about Louis Deacon’s Benefit Year – including the supporters’ Pie & Pint Night on October 10 and Kings of Europe Dinner a week later – from the stall in Final Whistle.

And you can learn more about Deacs in an exclusive interview in the Tigers match programme. We’ve also got George Chuter’s Inside Line pages, a picture special from Tigers In The Park, all the news from Welford Road and two pages of puzzles in the Junior Tigers Club pages. The 100-page programme is on sale throughout the stadium, price £3.

If you are a season ticket holder and have not done so already, you can pick up your copy of the club's Official Review of 2011/12 from The Final Whistle on the way into the game.

The Tigers Club Store and ticket office are open from 9am, and extra shop points are open around the stadium during the afternoon.

Kick-off will be preceded by a minute’s silence in honour of Ulster Rugby player Nevin Spence who died in an accident in Northern Ireland last weekend. All supporters are asked to make their way to their places inside the stadium in good time to pay their respects.
