The Board of Leicester Tigers announces that Ben Kay will leave his role as Non-Executive Director.

Kay joined the Tigers Board in 2014, four years after retiring as a Leicester player.

He made 281 appearances for the club, as well as earning 62 Test caps for England and two Test caps for the British & Irish Lions.

Kay was a Rugby World Cup winner in 2003 and played in a second Final four years later as well as making 12 major final appearances for Tigers, including back-to-back European Cup victories in 2001 and 2002.

Awarded an MBE for Services to Sport in 2004 alongside his World Cup-winning team-mates, Kay is member of the BT Sport rugby commentary team and a partner at an award-winning advertising agency.

Leicester Tigers Chairman Peter Tom said: “On behalf of everybody at the club and involved with Tigers, I thank Ben for his service to our Board during the past seven years.

“Ben has been a great clubman, on and off the pitch, for more than two decades since arriving as a player in 1999.

“We are extremely grateful for what he has contributed to Leicester Tigers and wish him well for the future.”

Kay added: "Leicester Tigers has played such a significant role in my life and it has been a huge honour to serve the club once again."

"Although the last seven years haven’t always been easy the journey back to where Tigers should operate appears to have begun and I look forward to watching that continue and gather pace."
