Leicester Tigers will open the club’s first-ever European Challenge Cup campaign with a home game against Pau on Saturday, November 16.
After the encounter with Pau in Pool 5, Tigers travel to Cardiff Blues in Round 2 a week later and then have just one domestic league fixture ahead of back-to-back fixtures with Italian outfit Calvisano Rugby in the build-up to Christmas.
The home leg against Cardiff Blues follows in New Year, with a trip to France to face Pau in Round 6 concluding the pool stages.
Kick-off dates and times for the opening five rounds have been confirmed with tournament organisers EPCR and their broadcast partners. Details for Round 6 fixtures will be confirmed following Round 4 in consultation with the broadcasters.
Match tickets for Tigers’ home games against Pau and Calvisano go on sale from Friday, September 6 to season ticket holders requiring extra tickets for family and friends, and to members, with prices from £20 adults.
Tickets go on general sale to all other supporters from Friday, September 13. Buy early for the best prices.
Home games in the pool stages of Europe as well as the Premiership Rugby Cup and Gallagher Premiership programme are included in Tigers season tickets. Click the link below for more details.
Tigers are organising a supporter trip to the Calvisano away game in December with club travel partners Thomas Cook Sport. Details will be announced on the club website later today.
