Leicester Tigers will kick off the new Aviva Premiership season with a home game against Bath Rugby on Sunday, September 3 before heading to derby rivals Northampton Saints in Round 2.

The fixture programme for the 2017/18 season has been revealed this morning by Premiership Rugby, including confirmed kick-off dates and times for the opening 10 rounds up to the start of December.

Please note that although the league has confirmed the full programme for Round 1-10, the Round 8 and 9 fixtures involving Tigers are still subject to alteration due to a fixture clash with neighbours Leicester City in November.

Tigers begin the season on home turf against Bath, then go to Saints before hosting Gloucester in Round Three. The opening phase also features Harlequins away, Exeter Chiefs at home and then London Irish away before the first break for cup competitions.

The Christmas fixture is at home to Saracens and then Tigers go to Exeter at New Year.

The run-in features another Twickenham date with Bath, a last home game against Newcastle Falcons in Round 21 and then Sale Sharks away in Round 22.

The 2017-18 Aviva Premiership Rugby season will kick off on September 1 with Premiership Rugby Champions Exeter Chiefs beginning the defence of their title with a West Country derby against Gloucester Rugby, live on BT Sport.

The opening weekend will also see the traditional London Double Header return to Twickenham, with newly-promoted London Irish facing Harlequins, while Saracens take on Northampton Saints. 

Tigers season tickets are available now, including entry to all home league fixtures as well as home games in the pool stages of the European Champions Cup and Anglo-Welsh Cup, and the two pre-season fixtures against Benetton Treviso and the Ospreys in August.
