Welford Road will welcome its biggest crowd of the season on Christmas Eve when Leicester Tigers play Saracens.

More than 23,500 tickets have already been sold for the Aviva Premiership clash and fans are encouraged to book their place now to avoid disappointment.

There is plenty of festive fun for fans ahead of kick-off at 3pm with a live band on the plaza in front of the Holland & Barrett Stand playing Christmas songs.

There will be seasonal food and drink for fans as the festive fun continues ahead of kick off (3.00pm) with activities in the Junior Tigers Club for all the family.

Tigers staff will be on the lookout for the best fancy-dress and Christmas jumpers on show, and fans will get the chance to unwrap festive prizes in our half-time Pass the Parcel game.

Santa Claus will be there to greet young fans, and volunteers from Tigers' official charity Leicester Hospitals Kidney Care Appeal will be holding a bucket collection throughout the day.

Fans will also be able to visit the Tigers Store at Welford Road to grab any last minute Christmas gifts such as replica shirts, training wear, the limited edition 125 Collection.

Doors open at 1pm and, with it being a Christmas Eve fixture, the Final Whistle bar will close at 7.30pm.

Match tickets are still available. Phone the Tigers ticket office on 0116 319 8888 (option 2), visit the Tigers store at Highcross shopping centre or book online.
