What a weekend at Welford Road! As well as a Leicester Tigers victory over defending league champions Exeter Chiefs in a hard-fought win, supporters were also treated to our Oktoberfest festivities.
In partnership with club sponsor and power tools specialist STIHL, fans warmed up ahead of Saturday’s kick off with traditional Bavarian entertainment and food and drink.
Set up on the plaza outside the Holland & Barrett Stand at Welford Road, our Oompah band entertained the crowds with their traditional take on Oktoberfest while fans also got involved with activities including the STIHL tacklebag and Fordy’s Kicking Challenge.
With Bavarian snacks and traditional German beers providing an appropriate background, some fans got into the spirit of Oktoberfest by showing off their fancy dress. Take a look at some of our photos from our gallery above and keep an eye out for more across the club’s social media.
Tigers’ next home match is against Castres Olympique in the European Champions Cup on Saturday, October 21 (5.30pm) and match tickets are available now.
