Welcome to Kings of the North

The Kings of the North features three well-established Premiership Rugby clubs - Leicester Tigers, Newcastle Falcons and Sale Sharks in an exciting tournament to kick-off the 2015/16 season. Formed around the rich history of the three clubs as well as the King Richard III appeal, this cup competition will take place in the Autumn of 2015.

The teams will play each other both home and away, with points awarded in the same way as in the Aviva Premiership. At the end of the round robin, one team will be crowned the Kings of the North and will win the Richard III Cup.

The partnership between Leicester Cathedral and Leicester Tigers has grown out of the King Richard III Appeal and the strong voice of support Leicester Tigers put behind this. The legacy of the reinterment of King Richard III in March will encompass community, educational and cultural work and the new cup competition will be a significant part of this.
