Welford Road stadium has been home to the Leicester Tigers since September 1892 and now has a capacity of 25,849, making it the largest purpose-built club rugby ground in the UK.
Located on the southern edge of the city centre, Tigers moved in after a nomadic existence in the club’s early years but quickly established home there, building two impressive stands and a clubhouse. In recent years, the 10,000-seat north stand which carries the branding of main sponsors Holland & Barrett and the clubhouse development at the Aylestone Road end have been added, providing extra facilities for supporters and flexible accommodation for functions away from matchdays.
The Holland & Barrett Stand
The biggest stand at Welford Road – and the second-largest single-tier stand in the country after The Kop at Liverpool FC – the 10,000-seat Holland & Barrett Stand was built in 2009, replacing the Members Stand which had stood for nearly a century.
The Mattioli Woods Stand
Built in 1995, this stand includes executive box accommodation and hospitality lounge as well as matchday seating behind the posts at the Welford Road end of the stadium.
The South Stand
Home to the dressing rooms for players and officials, the historic South Stand accommodates 8,500 supporters split between bench seating and terrace standing.
The Robin Hood Stand
Built during 2015/16 to replace the original Clubhouse and its extensions as well as a temporary seating deck, The Robin Hood Stand, named in honour of sponsors from The Nottingham Building Society, is the most recent addition to the landscape at Welford Road.
The main Leicester Tigers Store is located in The Robin Hood Stand at Welford Road (accessible via Aylestone Road)
