Leicester Tigers set to play last home Aviva League fixture in Lichfield


Leicester Tigers are set to play their last home match of the Aviva ‘A’ League season at Lichfield Rugby Club in Staffordshire.

The game is set to take place on Sunday, April 9 at 3pm as the Tigers Development XV will face off against Worcester Cavaliers on Lichfield’s Cooke Fields.

The side have managed wins over the Wasps, Newcastle falcons and Sale Jets but lost their first match of the season over Christmas to Northampton Wanderers.

The Tigers Development XV currently sit in second in the Northern Conference of the ‘A’ league competition, and the side pride themselves on mixing experienced players with youth prospects in order to help them gain experience.

Chris Rose, head of brand at Leicester Tigers, said: “Staffordshire is a very strong area in terms of support for the Tigers and a home county for our Academy and Developing Player Programme.

“We work with many great clubs in the county at Lichfield, Tamworth, Stoke, Burton, Burntwood, Barton-under-Needwood, Leek and Newcastle who take part in our activities at Welford Road and moving an Aviva ‘A’ League game to the area was the next natural step in showing our support and building on our great relationships.

“The facilities at Lichfield Rugby Club are fantastic and we hope many supporters will join us for a big family day out.”

And Iain Eadie, who is the deputy chairman of Lichfield, said: “Having Leicester Tigers at Lichfield each year for our summer camp is fantastic because it gives minis and juniors from clubs all over Staffordshire the chance to have fun, make new friends and get a week of great rugby coaching.

“We hope as many boys and girls, mums and dads, and everyone else can come along on April 9 and enjoy a fantastic afternoon of rugby.”
