Leicester Tigers announce record season ticket figures

Leicester Tigers season ticket sales have hit a record mark of 15,230 for 2014/15.

Announcing the club record figure, Tigers chief executive Simon Cohen said: "Season ticket sales are central to what we do as a club and in the backing we provide for the playing squad.

"We don't have an outright owner or limitless budgets, but we work around the revenues we generate, so the level of support is vital.

"Every single season ticket holder plays their part in the club's operations and the support of the team management and players.

"To have more than 15,000 people committed to season tickets is a massive statement of support and reflection of the stature of the club as a whole.

"Also, that support gives us the confidence to pursue our development plans for Welford Road stadium, with the proposals for a new stand at the Clubhouse End taking capacity up to 26,000 as well as our continued commitment to improve facilities and the matchday experience for all visitors.

"With the new European competitions, new broadcast deals and a home World Cup later this year, this is an exciting time for rugby in England and, as always, we want to see Leicester Tigers at the forefront of the game."

Season ticket sales and renewals for 2015/16 are now available from the Tigers ticket office. A Direct Debit option is available to spread the payments.
