A judging panel representing players and supporters has met to select the inaugural inductees into the Hall of Fame at Leicester Tigers.
After Tigers supporters were asked to make their nominations for consideration from the club’s 140-year history, the Hall of Fame committee met at Welford Road to discuss the relative merits of players, coaches and administrators for inclusion.
Committee members Steve Kenney, Bleddyn Jones and Matt Smith brought a combined total of almost 1,000 first-team games to the table, combined with input from club historian Stuart Farmer and long-time supporter John Griffiths.
Former scrum-half Kenney, presenting the view of the Past Players Association, emphasised that the Hall of Fame will recognise “contribution here and what they have done for Leicester, on and off the field” in the club’s lengthy history.
From the most decorated to the cult hero, the clubman to life members, the Tigers Hall of Fame will have its official launch at an inaugural dinner at Welford Road on April 21 and will be updated on an annual basis.
The names of the inaugural inductees will be revealed later this week on the Tigers website and social media.
Places at the Hall of Fame Dinner when inductees will be invited to join other past players and members of the current playing squad as well as supporters are available to book now. Phone 0116 217 1202 to book or click below to find out more about our Hall of Fame packages.
