Saturday’s victory means Saracens will return to the Premiership final in their first season back in England’s top flight. Leicester will face Saracens in their first English rugby Premiership final in nine years after they survived a severe test from local rivals Northampton to emerge 27-14 winners in a bruising semifinal at Welford Road on Saturday.
Leicester’s opponents in the final, Saracens, beat holders Harlequins thanks to a hattrick from flanker Ben Earl in a feisty, high-quality semifinal.
Trailing, a man down and up against it early in the second half, Leicester hit back with tries by George Ford and Freddie Steward and Ford then made sure with a drop goal and penalty to take his tally to 22 points.
After a 27-14 win over Northampton Saints in the semi-final, Tigers will face Saracens in the Final, which is a 3.00pm kick-off on June 18, and each club receives an allocation of tickets in each price category.
Tickets are £39, £59, £72 and £99 adults, £20 juniors (no concession prices available in Category 1 £99 seats) within the Tigers allocation in the North Stand. There is a limit of six tickets per booker.

After a long, hard season, two teams remain.
Leicester’s win over Northampton and Saracens’ victory over Quins means the two teams who finished the regular season in first and second will contest the Premiership final at Twickenham next Saturday.
