Figure image
In an effort to reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste and litter generated on a matchday, as well as improving service for supporters, reusable goblets are being introduced in bar areas at Welford Road in 2015/16.Catering partners Centerplate are introducing Tigers-themed reusable plastic glasses in the bars around the stadium.   These goblets are heavier and more substantial than previous plastic containers and ONLY reusable glasses will be available at the stadium.   A £1 deposit per glass will be added to the cost of your first drink and when you return to the bar, you will be served in a fresh, clean reusable glass. Or you can keep the glass as souvenir.   There will be return stations for glasses around the stadium to return your deposit.   Also, two-pint pots will be introduced for the new season in the ABC and Final Whistle bars, using the same reusable system and deposit.   This system will be in place from the opening home game, against Los Pumas in the Marcos Ayerza Testimonial Challenge on September 5, and will be in operation for all home fixtures. As well as the introduction of reusable plastic glasses, there are some other changes at kiosks and bars for the new season. There is a new layout in operation at the Final Whistle Bar to offer a more efficient service to all supporters.  For more details of matchday changes for the new season, click here.
