Leicester Tigers are delighted to welcome Holland & Barrett as the club’s new main sponsors.

Holland & Barrett is the UK's leading retailer of vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements. Their stores are a familiar sight in almost every major city and town across the UK. Interest in natural food supplements has increased considerably in recent years and Holland & Barrett has always had a commitment to its customers to provide high quality products at value-for-money prices.

The company has been a prominent partner of Leicester Tigers since September 2010 and will assume main sponsorship, including the front of the team shirt, for the start of 2016/17 as well as taking naming rights for the 10,000-seat North Stand.

Tigers chief executive Simon Cohen said: "Holland & Barrett have become major supporters of the club over the last six years and we are delighted to now welcome them as main partners.

"This is an exciting time for the professional game in England with a vibrant club competition, renewed European competitions and a national team that has just celebrated a Grand Slam and victorious tour of Australia this year.

"The Tigers always endeavour to be at the forefront of the game's development in this country and in Europe, and the strength of our commercial partnerships is fundamental to that. We look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship with Holland & Barrett.”

Peter Aldis, Holland & Barrett International's chief executive officer, said: "As a Tigers fan and Leicestershire resident, I'm excited and proud to support my local club.

"Holland & Barrett and the Tigers share a common goal in reaching peak health and fitness, and we look forward to fuelling the team and the fans towards a successful campaign.”
