The Prima Tiger Cup festival for under-10s teams kicked off a new season with the opening festival held at Diss RFC.
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 who took part in the opening festival were from Beccles, Crusaders, Holt, Lowestoft & Yarmouth, North Walsham, Norwich, Southwold, Stowmarket, Swaffham, Woodbridge, Wymondham and hosts Diss and Diss Barbarians.
Players also got the chance to meet Tigers centre Jaco Taute with scrum-half Sam Harrison joining youngsters at next weekend's Leicester Forest festival.
Holt and Wymondham have been invited back to play in the Cup, Crusaders and North Walsham in the Bowl and Beccles and Woodbridge in the Shield, all at the home of Leicester Tigers later on this year.
These teams are the first to be invited back 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
- Mellish RFC – November 3
