The official history of Leicester Tigers is being brought bang up to date with publication later this year - and you can have your name printed in it if you order this month.

At more than 500 pages and including details of all players and results since the club’s formation in 1880, the book makes an ideal addition to a supporter’s collection.
Compiled and written by official club historian and statistician Stuart Farmer and rugby journalist David Hands, the book benefits from new research into the early life of the club and through every era up to the professional game and tells the fascinating stories behind the headlines to create the definitive updated complete club history.
The volume includes:
  • Complete club history 1880-2014 in an easy-to-follow style.
  • Career details of every Leicester first-team player, plus a detailed biographical section on all players to have been awarded a club cap by making 100 starts.
  • Details of all club officials, coaching teams and Board members.
  • Results, scorers and team line-ups for every first-class fixture, extended to include the time of tries and chronological league positions in the modern era as well as official attendances.
  • Updated and comprehensive statistics in an A-Z format contained in a Tigers Encyclopaedia section.
  • This edition is lavishly illustrated, using unpublished new material wherever possible.
The book is being published with any profits benefiting the Rugby Development Foundation, a charitable organisation backing and supporting grassroots rugby including the development of elite young players through the Tigers.
Pre-order is available now at £40 (including UK post and package, courtesy of DX).

The first 2,000 subscribers before August 1 will have their name included in the book.
Books will be distributed during late-October.
