Being one of the biggest names in world rugby, Welford Road welcomes fans from all around the globe.

Earlier this season, the #MeetTheFamily team caught up with dad Steve and his son Finn who had travelled all the way from Ireland to watch Tigers.

Originally season ticket holders a few years ago, Steve and his family moved across to Ireland and visit Leicester when catching up with family. 

Finn, aged seven, said: “I love coming back here, I came to my first game two season’s ago and I’m always so excited! 

“I’ve bought a scarf and got my programme and can’t wait to be sitting in the biggest stand.”

Steve added: “We travel back to Leicester to visit family and so always try and tie this in with a trip to Welford Road. It’s such a buzz to come back and see the boys in action - we’re always talking about Tigers to people back in Ireland.”

To see Finn’s face when the crowd are cheering and the players are running out – he’s so excited and I’m just the same.”
