Earlier this month, the club shared an update of the development of the Leicester Tigers Foundation monument project alongside on-going construction at the stadium. 

It is thanks to the generosity of supporters and donations of patrons, that the construction of the monument, which will stand proudly on the new Plaza situated in front of the main stand, is reaching it's final stages. 

Over the coming week’s, the club will share photos of the construction of the new design featuring a bronze tiger head – raised approximately 18 feet high on a plinth, with commemorative plaques.

The plaques will feature the names of the fallen Tigers, as well as the names of those who have donated and supported the project through the club's limited-edition Leicester Tigers Foundation crowns.

The commemorative Foundation crowns will be available online until 5.00pm on Monday, May 31, at which point no more names will be able to be added to the monument.

Monument designer Harvey Gardiner also provided an update on the latest developments. 

“The great news is that despite the incredible and unforeseen challenges the Club and Foundation have faced through the pandemic, with a fair wind we remain on track to deliver the foundation monument for November 2021”, Harvey explained. 

“The design has needed to adapt and follow a process of evolution from the original concept created on 27/4/2016 to get us to where we are now and its thanks to the fans, supporters and the Royal Leicestershire Regiment the monument is now entering the final stages of its creation."

Keep an eye out over the coming weeks for photos and a look back at the project to date, including a look back at the club’s armed forces links in ‘When We Were Tigers’.
