The annual DX Awards Night to find Leicester Tigers supporters' players of the year is just two weeks away but there is still time to guarantee your place.

The DX Supporter Awards night is at Welford Road on Tuesday, May 2, when the winners will be revealed in the company of the first-team squad, coaching team and supporters.

The event is attended by players and coaches alongside supporters, featuring a three-course meal with a Tigers player at your table, plus interviews, entertainment, video presentations and your chance to vote for your DX Try of the Season. 

Awards Night has sold out for the last four seasons, so book now to guarantee your place at a great evening.

Book in person at the Tigers ticket office, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or click here to book your place online. Tickets are £60 for season ticket holders and £80 for all other supporters.

Voting is open now to find the Newcomer of the Season, Young Player and the Player of the Season, as well as honouring one squad member for Outstanding Service.

The Try of the Season award is voted for only by supporters present at Awards Night.

Telusa Veainu (Player and Newcomer), Harry Thacker (Young Player and Try) were double winners in 2015/16, while the Outstanding Service award went to Matt Smith.

Thacker is nominated again in the Young Player category alongside Will Evans, Ellis Genge and George Worth.

The award for Newcomer of the Season will be contested by Ellis Genge, Luke Hamilton, George McGuigan and JP Pietersen.

Contenders for the Outstanding Service award are long-serving quartet Dan Cole, Tom Croft, Ben Youngs and Tom Youngs.
