The Tigers Supporters' Forum meets six times a season at Welford Road with senior club staff members to discuss the issues and ask the questions that most affect them and the fans they represent. The forum consists of fans who represent all categories within our supporter base and we are looking for new members to join us for the 2015/16 season.
As a member of the forum, each individual will have a duty to provide the views relating to the fans they represent and ensure they best serve their interests in meetings with the club.
Aims and Objectives
• To allow supporters to communicate directly with the club in a structured manner.
• To help the club better understand the issues that most affect and concern our fans.
• To give the club an opportunity to explain the thinking behind key decisions.
• To enable fans to play a key role in helping the club achieve success on and off the pitch.
• To provide transparency about key issues that affect supporters.
Your supporters forum team
There are three key members of staff who will join the supporters at the forums. We will act as a first point of contact for the fans on the forum and in general and are happy to try to answer any questions you may have.
Chris has responsibility for all supporter operations including season tickets, community and marketing activities. Chris played rugby at the same school as Tom and Ben Youngs, and took part in the world's oldest rugby competition - The Hospitals Cup. He joined Tigers in 2007 from Norwich City FC and has almost been forgiven for his football past. His son plays rugby in the minis age groups. email@example.com
Gary is our Head of Communications and has been a sports journalist for 25 years. He worked in daily newspapers and magazines, and was head of sport at the Leicester Mercury until joining Tigers in 2006, as well as being a Tigers season ticket holder on the terrace. Gary is the voice of our Try Tuesdays events and occasional matchdays. Away from work, he is a junior rugby coach.
Laura has impeccable Tigers credentials, having been a Terrace season ticket holder before joining the club in the ticket office. Laura is now responsible for ensuring that supporters get the best service possible from all areas of the clubs, and is an evangelist for us improving everything we do on matchdays. Laura was proud to have been at both Heineken Cup finals wins and has been with Tigers since 2005.
Each member of the forum will be required to attend at least four of the six meetings per season.
