Work continues on the new West Stand at Welford Road, with the majority of the seating deck now in place.Supporters have an opportunity to assess progress during Saturday’s pre-season fixture against Loughborough University, with the concrete seating deck being added, lift tower and staircases in place, more steelwork lifted on to the roof frame and the brickwork facing Aylestone Road also now visible over the protective fencing.   The new stand will house 3,000 seats upon completion, including a Clubhouse season ticket lounge, supporter concourse and staff offices.   Tigers are working closely with contractors Buckingham, project managers FWP and architects AFL, while supporters can follow progress on the club website, with photo galleries, webcams and virtual reality tour.

For all other supporters, match tickets are on sale from the Tigers ticket office.   All season ticket holders should use their existing cards for both of these games.   Season ticket holders will receive new cards following the Sale Sharks fixture to use for the opening Aviva Premiership match against Harlequins on Sunday, October 25.   Any new season ticket holders and also existing season ticket holders who have relocated seats or changed price category (e.g. Young Adult to Adult, or Adult to 65-plus) should have already received printed match tickets for the pre-season games.   All supporters with season tickets in the new West Stand have been sent tickets for other parts of the stadium for these fixtures.   The Holland & Barrett Stand is subject to a reduced capacity until completion of redevelopment work due to the loss of turnstiles at the Aylestone Road end and the location of the safety control box on the terrace. All supporters will be directed to turnstiles at the Welford Road End.   On matchday, a team of supervisors will be located at the turnstiles and Tigers Gameskeepers will be around the stadium to assist with any queries.   Book your match tickets now at the Tigers ticket office, in person at the Club Store at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 or click here to book online.
