The new year is upon us and after what has been an undeniably bumpy, rollercoaster ride in 2018, there’s plenty in store in 2019 for the Tigers Family.
With the opening half of the Gallagher Premiership season offering up arguably the most competitive competition in its history, there’s still plenty to play for as all 12 clubs remain in the race for play off spots.
Up next for Geordan Murphy’s men are Gloucester on Saturday, January 5 at Welford Road and, after going down to the Lions earlier this season at Kingsholm, the Tigers will be out for revenge against their long-time rivals in Cherry and White.
Gloucester’s shown plenty of promise so far this season and, with Owen Williams pulling the strings behind a powerful pack including fellow former Tigers Ed Slater and Fraser Balmain, there will be plenty of feeling out in the middle of the Welford Road pitch in Round 12.
With the first half of the season now in the rearview mirror, Saturday’s showdown with Gloucester also doubles as the first match included in the 2018/19 Half Season Ticket.
Available up until kick-off at 3.00pm on Saturday, a Half Season Ticket offers entry to each game at the home of the Tigers Family remaining this season at the very best value.
Join the lads for the run home by showing your support from the stands at Welford Road each home game. To find out more about Half Season Tickets CLICK HERE or phone the Box Office at Welford Road on 0116 319 8888.
Away from the action on the pitch, there is also plenty on offer for fans at Welford Road in the first half of the year with half a dozen Tigers Events taking place up until June.
It all begins with the International Sports Bar in February, when supporters can watch England take on Ireland among fellow Tigers fans at Welford Road when the powerhouses of world rugby clash in the 2019 Six Nations.
The highly anticipated return of the Tigers Pub Quiz follows just weeks later on Tuesday, February 19 when you can take on current members of the squad and test your knowledge against fellow fans during what will be an entertaining evening full of laughs.
England’s only captain to have ever lifted aloft the William Webb Ellis trophy returns to Welford Road on Tuesday, March 5 for what is the jewel in the crown of Tigers Events in 2019 for the World Cup Preview Dinner. Before the tournament kicks-off in Japan, join us for a fantastic evening as legends of World Cups past reunite to share about their playing experiences. In the fashion of last year’s 125 Year Dinner, this promises to be another unforgettable evening that includes a three-course dinner with wine.
