A tradition well established in youth rugby, the Prima Tigers Cup celebrates its 25th year this 2018/19 and all-season long we’ll be looking back at what has made the under-10 festivals so special.
A brief history
First introduced in 1993/94, the Prima Tiger Cup has evolved into one of the UK’s biggest single age group youth rugby events for local rugby clubs up and down the country.
Each season, Leicester Tigers invites under-10 mini rugby teams to take part in a series of festivals across the country, resulting in the opportunity to play on the famous Welford Road pitch.
Celebrating all aspects of the game from the rugby on the pitch, to the behaviour and ethos of the teams and communities, selected clubs who excel across all disciplines enjoy a once in a lifetime chance to play at the home of Leicester Tigers.
The first Prima Tiger Cup involved eight rugby clubs from Leicestershire. This year’s festivals will involve more than 70 clubs and continues to be as popular as ever.
Catch the action
With the first set of Prima Tiger Cup festivals returning this season, we’ll be chatting to the people behind the festival as well as the teams, youngsters and Tigers players who have been involved throughout the 25 years.
