Leicester Tigers

The illustrious history of the formidable Leicester Tigers dates back to 1880, making them the best-supported and most successful club in English rugby today.

They hold an enviable position in the game, both domestically and internationally, boasting 10 English league titles and consecutive European crowns. The Tigers have firmly established themselves at the pinnacle of the professional rugby scene, setting the standard for others to emulate.

Welford Road, the venue for rugby matches since 1892, has undergone continuous development, culminating in its current capacity of 26,000. This includes the impressive 10,000-seater North Stand, inaugurated in 2009, and the opposite South Stand featuring a spacious terrace for standing spectators. The stadium offers essential amenities such as a ticket office, the official Tigers shop, and versatile conferencing and wedding facilities.

Recognized as one of the world's premier club rugby grounds, Welford Road not only impresses with its size but also captivates visitors with an electrifying match day atmosphere. The passionate fans, situated close to the action, generate a unique buzz. Join us to support the team and experience the resounding roar of the Tigers!
