Tigers fans, with rugby returning to Welford Road this weekend, you’re now invited to come and meet the newest Tigers in town as the club hosts a cocktail evening alongside Burleighs Gin at the stadium.

Summer signings Noel Reid, Calum Green, Hanro Liebenberg and Jordan Coghlan will all make their first start in a Tigers shirt on Friday and on Tuesday 1 October you’ll have the opportunity to meet the lads in person and find out just what it is like to walk out onto the hallowed pitch.

The event will be held in the Clubhouse Suite at Welford Road, which will be transformed to host a cocktail evening, providing guests and the Tigers ‘newbies’ an opportunity to introduce themselves and try their hand at mixology, courtesy of club partner Burleighs Gin.

Kicking off at 6.00pm, guests will take part in a Burleighs mixologist masterclass as well as enjoy a delicious food buffet before mingling with the players before a Q&A later in the evening.
