Tigers are celebrating our supporters in the club's new #MeetTheFamily campaign and today give over the club's Facebook profile picture to Fan of the Week Stefan Georges.

As part of our 2017/18 season ticket campaign, we have been talking to Tigers fans and gathering their amazing Welford Road memories and stories.
We have brought the stories together for fellow fans to read and you can add yours at www.leicestertigers.com/MeetTheFamily
The stories include Stefan's, who fell in love with Tigers at his very first game, THAT victory over the then World Champions South Africa at Welford Road in 2009.
Stefan, who is the profile picture on the club's Facebook page this afternoon, says: “I’ve had a season ticket for about five years now. My first match at Welford Road was Leicester University v De Monfort University, but my first Tigers match was actually against South Africa in one of those tour games. It was a brilliant game to start with!
“The best nights are the big European nights. My favourite was when it was snowy, it was minus goodness knows what and we were the only sporting event on in the whole country.
“I remember them announcing before the game that half time would be reduced to 10 minutes due to the cold, and every fan sighed a collective ‘thank god for that’. It was the only time I’ve been to the bar area at Welford Road and found the bar empty, but the hot drinks aisle was rammed!”
