All tickets for the match which was due to be played this Thursday will still be valid.

Following the recent unexpected weather, we have unfortunately had to postpone the Varsity rugby match held at Leicester Tigers Welford Road.

The decision was made by Leicester Tigers groundstaff who have been unable to treat and prepare the pitch due to the unpredictable weather of recent weeks alongside the importance of upcoming Aviva Premiership fixtures.

This is a key date in the Varsity calendar, and in order to allow our students the amazing opportunity of stepping out onto the hallowed Welford Road turf, the club has already agreed a new date of Monday April 30 2018.

Scott Clarke, head of community and global partnerships at Leicester Tigers, said: “We are delighted to be able to overcome the “Beast from the East” and find a way to continue this traditional Varsity celebration event involving both universities men's and women's rugby teams as well as Leicester’s student population.”

All tickets for the original fixture will be valid for the new date. The full statement from Leicester Tigers is available on their website.
