Figure image
The Fort family completed their Ultimate Season Ticket Experience, courtesy of StubHub, by presenting Jordan Crane with the First Try Scorer Award at the final home game of the season.The family enjoyed VIP Matchday Hospitality in the Premiership Suite at the Aviva Premiership Round 22 victory over Northampton, before handing Crane a bottle of bubbly following his opening score in the game.   The presentation capped a stunning prize for the Fort family. It included being presented to a large matchday crowd at half-time of the home game against London Welsh, when they also received Tigers’ home shirts.   Dad Jonathan and his friends joined 450 guests at the End of the Year Awards dinner at Welford Road last week, when he presented the Try of the Season to Tom Youngs. He made the fantastic gesture of inviting Fan of the Year nominees Ian Cockerill and Eddy Crowe onstage with him to make the presentation.   The prize continued on Tuesday when Jonathan’s dad John and his friend Allan Day were given a behind-the-scenes tour of Tigers’ Oval Park training ground by club legend Louis Deacon.   The tour included a look at the gym and rehabilitation facilities, the chance to watch some of the training ahead of Saturday’s Aviva Premiership game against Wasps, and lunch with the playing squad.   All fans who signed up for next year at Welford Road with a 2015/16 season ticket before March 28 were entered into the competition to win the Ultimate Season Ticket Experience with StubHub, the club’s official ticketing marketplace.   More than 12,000 supporters have already signed up to a 2015/16 season ticket. Season tickets for 2015/16 are available now from the Tigers ticket office. Click here to book online or call 0116 319 8888 (option 2).
