We’re looking for your Fan of the Year, a member of the Tigers Family who shows particular loyalty and commitment to the team, and we’re taking nominations from supporters. A panel of judges will look at all of the nominations and the shortlisted fans will be invited to the awards night dinner on April 29 when the winner will be revealed.
Following feedback from the Supporters Forum, the shortlist in four award categories is now open for your votes.
Top try-scorer Vereniki Goneva, last year’s winner Julian Salvi, and forwards Jamie Gibson, Ed Slater and Tom Youngs are nominated for the DX Player of the Year Award.
Back-rower Gibson also features in the frame for Best Newcomer, and fly-half Owen Williams is shortlisted in two categories.
Long-serving second-rower Louis Deacon is nominated alongside props Marcos Ayerza and Boris Stankovich, and club captain Toby Flood in the DX Outstanding Service Award category.

The DX Try of the Season award is voted for only by Awards Night guests.
Awards Night is the most glittering evening of the season, in the company of the first-team squad and the coaching staff in the Premiership Suite at Welford Road. This event includes a three-course meal with a Tigers player at your table, interviews and highlights videos throughout the evening, and the presentation of the awards to the player and young players of the year, best newcomer and the player who has contributed outstanding service to the club.
More than 500 supporters attended last year’s awards dinner at Welford Road, with Julian Salvi, Manu Tuilagi, Adam Thompstone and Martin Castrogiovanni receiving the main prizes.
