John, a season ticket holder in the Breedon Stand, won the TigersLotto Matchday Draw at yesterday’s Gallagher Premiership clash with Sale Sharks.
John, who has been a season ticket holder for 25 years, was presented to a big Welford Road crowd during half-time of the game.
And he said: “It’s excellent to win but a complete surprise. What will I do with the money? Buy another season ticket!
“I played the TigersLotto because I wanted to support the Tigers in another way.”
