Tigers versus Nottingham cancelled

Figure image
The pre-season fixture between Leicester Tigers and Nottingham Rugby scheduled for Friday afternoon has been cancelled. The match between Tigers and Ospreys is unaffected and will go ahead as scheduled at Welford Road, 7.45pm kick-off.

Two games had been originally arranged for the final weekend of the pre-season period to provide preparation opportunities for the senior players and development squad but, with a number of players unavailable due to injury niggles, resources have been reduced to a level where the club cannot support two full fixtures.
Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill said: “We had been keen to make this work with two fixtures on one day, for the squad and the supporters. However, with the new league season just a week away and after two weeks of pre-season fixtures, we now have a number of players unavailable with short-term injuries and we have had to take the decision that the Nottingham game will not now go ahead. We will now focus all of our resources on the match against the Ospreys only.
“We would like to apologise to all of our supporters, and also to the players, officials and fans from Nottingham Rugby, for having to cancel this fixture at short notice.
“The staff of Nottingham Rugby had worked very hard alongside the team at Tigers to arrange this game and we understand the disappointment of everyone that that it will not now take place.”

The Tigers versus Ospreys fixture is included in Tigers season tickets. For all other supporters, match tickets are available now. Book in person at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or click here to book online.
