Leicester Tigers have been able to continue to engage with fans by staging another meeting of the Supporters’ Forum online.
Although the regular forum meetings cannot take place at Welford Road stadium due to the Coronavirus lockdown, Tigers have hosted the last two meetings of the forum via a Zoom call with 50 forum members setting up to discuss matters relating to supporters this week.
The Supporters’ Forum meets half a dozen times a season with senior staff members to discuss all aspects of the club with this month’s agenda including the financial implications of the lockdown, COVID-19 ticket policy, retail update, World Rugby’s proposals for a global calendar and the first phase of the players’ return to training.
Chris Rose, who chairs the forum meetings as Tigers’ head of brand, said: “While we understand that we can’t get together at the stadium, the forum is very important to us. We want to hear from our forum members because they help us shape where we go in the future.
“Feedback on the online version continues to be very positive and we’re very grateful for members taking the time to join us and be able to give us their views on a range of issues.”
The Supporters’ Forum aims include giving fans a chance to communicate directly with the club in a structured manner while also helping the club’s understanding the issues that most concern the Tigers Family.
