Call for fans to help celebrate ‘125 years’

Figure image

This week’s Aviva Premiership opener against Bath marks the start of the 125th season of rugby at Welford Road. To mark the occasion, we’re asking supporters in the Holland & Barrett Stand to play their part in celebrating the anniversary just ahead of kick-off.

Fans will be asked to participate in a stand-wide call of arms to hold a card panel aloft just before the players walk on to the pitch just for kick-off at 3.00pm.

The cards will reveal a ‘125’ message and the club’s famous red, white and green backdrop.

Card panels will be distributed on each seat and we request that supporters reach their places by 2:50pm and then, on the signal, raise their cards to welcome the teams in style for the opening day of the new season. 

You can keep the card panel as a souvenir and the cameras will catch the welcome for posterity.
