More than 40 Leicester Tigers fans were invited to take part in the first Supporters’ Forum of the 2019/20 season.
Alongside regular faces, a number of new fans who had expressed an interest in getting involved with the forum also joined the group to hear some of the latest news and updates from the club.
Tigers chief executive officer Simon Cohen joined the panel who before the meeting enjoyed food samples from the club’s new catering partner Levy UK in the Captain’s Bar in the Robin Hood stand.
Cohen led a short Q&A with the forum going over a number of topics including the squad’s pre-season, coaching staff as well as the club’s decision to be ‘up for sale’.
Fans also asked about the proposed hotel and car park developments, the prospect of European rugby in the Challenge Cup as well as putting forward queries regarding the news of Welford Road going cashless.
The club’s ticket office manager Dom McGeever also met supporters to provide further information regarding the club’s new ticketing structure – focusing on giving fans the best value on match ticket prices – as well as some background behind the ticket office team based at Welford Road.
The first meeting of the new campaign concluded with a look forward to Tigers first competitive game of the new season, as Tigers face Worcester Warriors in the Premiership Rugby Cup at Sixways.
The Supporters’ Forum meets six times a season at Welford Road to hear updates, share feedback and debate a variety of topics on and off the pitch.
