Season ticket holders will have the chance to present the Spire Man of the Match award when Leicester Tigers take on London Irish in the Aviva Premiership on Saturday.

Fans are encouraged to vote for their Man of the Match at Welford Road fixtures in the Aviva Premiership and Anglo-Welsh Cup via the Tigers App.

And at each home game a season ticket holder is drawn out to meet the winner and present them with their prize in the tunnel after the final whistle.

The Man of the Match award is sponsored by club partner Spire Leicester Hospital.

Judith Wright was drawn out to present Mathew Tait with his Spire Man of the Match award when Tigers took Saracens at Welford Road on Christmas Eve. 

Judith, a season ticket holder for six years, was joined by her son Matthew Wright and grandsons James and Jacob to make the presentation.

She said: “I first started coming down in 2012 and came with my son Matthew and his first son Jacob, who was just nine months when he saw his first Tigers game!

“It was amazing to be able to present the award at the end of the match. We usually sit in the Robin Hood stand so it was exciting to experience the post-match activity by the tunnel.”

The winning season ticket holder will be contacted on Friday (January 5) ahead of Tigers’ Aviva Premiership clash with London Irish on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).

Fans will be able to vote for the Spire Man of the Match using the Tigers App. Voting will open at half-time and closes a minute before full-time.

Download the latest version of the Tigers app from the Apple Store or Google Play to be able to vote.
