Tigers recognise Top Clubs on opening day

Figure image
Leicester Tigers welcomed thousands of supporters to Welford Road matchdays as part of a Group Days Experience last season and have now honoured visitors in the first Group Days Top Clubs Awards.

Tigers In The Park in the build-up to the first game of the Premiership season on Saturday hosted the ceremony as senior players Louis Deacon, Anthony Allen, Geoff Parling and Laurence Pearce helped to present the awards to some of the Group Days Top Clubs.
Members of Boston, Burntwood, Coalville, Long Eaton and Market Harborough rugby clubs joined the players on stage for the presentation and photos.
On every matchday, Tigers welcome groups from rugby clubs, schools and colleges, work and social groups, and supporters enjoying celebrations and special occasions, all sharing the unbeatable matchday experience of a 24,000-capacity stadium and top-class rugby.
“It’s great to see so many groups from all over the country coming to Welford Road to spend a day together watching the Tigers,” said the club’s head of brand Chris Rose.
“We have amazing support from groups all over the country and their feedback about how they enjoy their time with us reinforces our belief that the matchday experience at the Tigers is the best day out in rugby.
“We’ve created this Group Days Top Clubs Award to highlight and recognise the superb support we receive from so many groups throughout the year.”    
Group Days include special rates for match tickets, the chance to share in the Tigers matchday experience as part of the Guard of Honour or Shirt Shakers, the half-time Big Boot or as part of a Matchday Coaching Clinic. Or why not make Welford Road the focal point of a tour or other major event with your club?
