The Prima Tiger Cup event for under-10s teams will kick-off the new season with the opening festival at Diss RFC this Sunday (October 6).
Supported by Prima Solutions of Loughborough, the Prima Tiger Cup is a free-to-enter contact-based fun event open to all clubs at under-10 level (RFU defined).
Celebrating its 25th year last year, the event takes place over four festivals covering the Tigers academy region and beyond. Throughout these festivals Tigers will look to identify clubs who demonstrate the true ethos of the game under our event criteria in keeping with the RFU Age Grade Rules and guidelines.
Teams taking part in the opening festival this weekend are from Beccles, Crusaders, Holt, Lowestoft & Yarmouth, North Walsham, Norwich, Southwold, Stowmarket, Swaffham, Woodbridge, Wymondham and hosts Diss and Diss Barbarians.
We wish them all the best of luck and hope all of the players and coaches have an enjoyable day with the Tigers.
Players will also get the chance to meet Tigers players as Jaco Taute is set to attend this weekend’s festival and Sam Harrison will be joining players at the festival at Leicester Forest, next weekend.
A local lad who took part in the Prima Tiger Cup when he was a youngster, watch Harrison relive those childhood years.
Selected clubs from the festivals will be invited to participate in a series of games at Tigers’ famous Welford Road stadium, providing a fantastic experience to young and aspiring players.
Attracting more than 70 entries each season, the Prima Tiger Cup is the largest and most prestigious single age-group playing opportunity in the rugby calendar.
This season’s other festival venues and dates:
Leicester Forest RFC – October 13
Tamworth RFC – October 27
