Representatives from Leicester Tigers met members of the Supporters’ Forum to share updates from across the club.
Although the regular forum meetings cannot take place at Mattioli Woods Welford Road stadium due to the government restrictions, Tigers have hosted the last four meetings of the forum via a Zoom call.
More than 50 forum members joined the call led by the club’s head of brand Chris Rose who chaired discussion on the club’s financial position, season tickets and retail.
The club has been open about the effect that Covid-19 has had on its matchday revenues and continue to look into additional revenue streams including virtual events.
With no set date on when crowds will be allowed to return, the Forum gave their feedback on other revenues streams as well as plans to support season tickets for the 2021/22 season.
The pandemic has also put a halt to youth rugby and academy matches across the UK though the club’s close relationship with Brooksby Melton College has helped to maintain the development of young players.
Tigers took ownership of its retail arm officially in July 2020 with the launch of new kits, training wear, collections and equipment available to supporters.
The Forum provided feedback on the subjects of quality and service as well as views on what they would like to see available online and in-store.
The club also shared the news that the retail sales had matched sales from the previous year as well as the impact of not being able to host matchdays, a trend when historically the shop’s sales are at their highest.
