Leicester Falcons are pleased to announce they will return to Leicester Road Stadium, Hinckley for the 2018 season.
The club previously planned to play games in Quorn, however this proved to present some logistical difficulties. As a result, the Falcons will return to the Hinckley venue that had been their home for the past three seasons. The ground provides seating for 600 and hosts a licensed bar.
“The stadium has proved popular with our players and fans and we look forward to returning to Hinckley for another year” a club spokesman said. “While our long-term goal is still a permanent home in Leicester we can provide one of the best gameday experiences in the country at Leicester Road, complete with live commentary, cheerleaders and food and drink”.
While the majority of the Falcons’ fixtures are unaffected, the move necessitates one change, with the home tie against Nottingham Caesars moving forward six weeks to Sunday April 29th. The home opener is against Coventry Jets on April 22nd, with a 2:30 kick off.
