GALLERY | Remembrance Day games over the years

Today marks Remembrance Sunday, a date normally reserved by the club to recognise the sacrifice of the servicemen and women who have given their lives in the line of duty.

In usual circumstances, Leicester Tigers would mark the occasion during the club's closest home matchday to November 11.

While this year’s occasion falls out of season due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the club is proud of its historic links with the Armed Forces and so we're taking a look back in the club's archives at some of Remembrance fixtures from seasons past.
