The North Stand
The biggest stand at Mattioli Woods Welford Road – and the second-largest single-tier stand in the country after The Kop at Liverpool FC – the 10,000-seat The North Stand was built in 2009, replacing the Members Stand which had stood for nearly a century.
The North Stand features accommodation on three levels, with the Final Whistle concourse on the ground floor open to all supporters ahead of kick-off at each home game, hospitality suites on the middle floor and the upper concourse serving the top rows of seats.
Final Whistle houses food kiosks and bars, including the 96 Coffee By Numbers bar owned by Tigers players Tom Croft and Ben Youngs, on matchdays as well as the Junior Tigers Club activity area. This is home to post-match live music too with resident band Rock Bottom.
The Tigers trophy cabinet, featuring some of the spoils from the club’s 130-plus years of history, is located between the main reception area and Final Whistle, and the Tigers Family Wall features the names of season ticket holders, players and staff with more than 10 years’ service to the club.
The staircase and landing features Tigers history and memorabilia, with more on the walls of Final Whistle.
Main Reception is accessed from the plaza area, with stairs and lift to the Premiership Suite on the first floor, housing the Honours Suite, 1880 Club and Directors Lounge.
Matchday hospitality and special occasion experiences are available in Honours, with 1880 providing an exclusive seasonal experience with top-class food and guest speakers each matchday. Honours is open for match-by-match hospitality and special occasion experiences for groups of any size.
The upper concourse has an area for refreshments and food for supporters.
Access to all seats on matchday opens 90 minutes before kick-off, though Final Whistle is open to all visitors earlier and also post-match.
Away from matchdays, the facilities are available for conference and events bookings, including weddings and exhibitions, with accommodation for up to 1,000 guests in the Premiership Suite. The suite can be divided into up to three spaces, providing flexibility for all kinds of functions.
The plaza outside hosts themed events for supporters on matchdays too as well as being available for conference and events bookings.
The Club Shop is located in the corner closest to Aylestone Road and there are additional shop units and the ticket collection unit on the plaza on matchdays.
