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 2016/17 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.

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.
