Fresh off the back of their 59-7 win over Pau in the European Challenge Cup at the weekend, Leicester Tigers players joined more than 100 young fans to take part in the JTC Christmas Cracker Party.
Hosted in the Premiership Suite at Welford Road, there was festive entertainment and activities for youngsters to get involved with.
Tigers young (and not so young) took time out help celebrate the festivities with some of the club youngest followers.
The party kicked off with a Christmas Disco and party games as well as a bouncy castle and slide for the kids to play on. Festive face painting and a Christmas arts and crafts table got the creative juices flowing before a visit from St Nick himself in Santa’s Grotto.
Thank you @LeicesterTigers for a wonderful afternoon at WR. The boys were over the moon meeting Santa & so many of the playing & coaching staff 🎅🏻🐯🎄 #Tigersfamily pic.twitter.com/pTOlpzdIpG— John Phillips (@John_Phillips) December 8, 2019
Club mascot Welford got in on the action causing mischief and posing for photos with the players and families.
Families were able to meet the players – some who bought along their own kids – and experience a Junior Tigers Club event with a difference.
Across the two-hour event, the players danced and joined in with activities before Santa waved his goodbyes ahead of his big night on December 25.
Thanks @LeicesterTigers and @TomYoungs87 for getting so many of the team together today. You made a lot of children very happy. pic.twitter.com/ZKwUec3B8v— Sewrutland (@sewrutland) December 8, 2019
