Mattioli Woods Welford Road welcomes the return of international rugby on Sunday and our Matchday Guide below contains everything you need to know about the day.

England and Ireland run out in the fourth round of the Tik-Tok Women’s Six Nations (12.00pm kick-off) in the first women’s international fixture at the home of the Leicester Tigers for 25 years.

Team announcements from both camps will be made on Friday.

Tickets and Stadium entry

Tickets are still available at the Tigers ticket office. Book online, phone on 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or visit the ticket station in the Club Shop now, or the ticket units outside the stadium on matchday.

Check that you are at the correct turnstile before trying to gain entry and please have your match ticket, print-at-home ticket or ticket on your smartphone ready to allow the easiest possible access to the stadium.

The club encourages supporters not to bring bags into the stadium in order to help minimise delays and contact due to searches at the turnstiles.

Please follow signage and instructions from stewards in the area closest to players of both teams in the Breedon Stand and help us to safeguard the health of players, officials and supporters by reducing congestion the tunnel area before or after the game.

Wellbeing and Safety

To help preserve the safety and wellbeing of all stadium visitors, supporters are requested to wear a face-covering in indoor areas and congested areas around other people, and to follow directions of signage and stewards regarding entry and exit.

Take extra care over hygiene and sanitisation, and if a ball is kicked to you in the warm-up or in the game, please do not return it direct to the players or to the pitch. Instead, return to the ball boy team or a steward so it can be sanitised.

Opening times

Stadium turnstiles, kiosks and bars are open from 10.00am.

Making payments

The stadium runs cashless payments only, including shops, bars, kiosks and programme booths.

Bars and kiosks

Returnable cups are used at all bars. Supporters can claim back their £1 deposit when cups are returned. Only 10 cups can be refunded by one person and persons over the age of 18 may redeem the cup. Proof of ID may be required.

Or you can support the Leicester Tigers Foundation by donating your cup in collection tubes around the stadium before you go home, with £1 going towards the Foundation’s work in the community for every cup.


The main Club Shop in the Beehive Money Stand is open all day. The second shop in the North Stand is also open on matchdays and there are shop booths around the stadium for matchday essentials.

The England Rugby matchday programme is free to collect around the stadium.

There is live music and DJ in the build-up to kick-off, with Flag Wavers and Guard of Honour ready to welcome the teams on to the pitch.


Kick-off is at midday, following a show of support for the people of Ukraine and the traditional singing of the anthems.


The players will acknowledge the crowd at full-time but all supporters must stay OFF the pitch.

Please do not wait and gather at the front of the stands as we aim to reduce congestion and close contact in those areas.

Sunday’s game is broadcast live on BBC2, or you can follow updates on the Leicester Tigers, England Rugby and Ireland Rugby social media accounts.
