“Home of the green and white Tigers!”

Welford Road Stadium
Ranked #13 of 114 things to do in Leicester
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 April 2011

The Watford Road Rugby Ground is home to the Leicester Tigers, the proud rugby team sporting the green and white colours. The stadium is impressive and comfortable. Great food and merchandise options in the concourse below the stands.
What really makes the experience at Watford Road a special one is the local fans. I have never encountered such a passionate, proud, knowledgeable and polite crowd in my life. As a supporter of the visiting team, I was outnumbered about 30000 to 1 and all I could see around me was a sea of green and white. They really got behind their boys and the noise when they voiced their support was special. Despite this, the locals around me chatted with me like an old friend – there was no animosity towards the opposition, they were all just enjoying the game in a very positive way. And to hear the silence when a kicker (home or opposition) was shooting for goal was one of the greatest things in Northern Hemisphere rugby – what respect for the players and the game!
Just be aware that in the middle of November it gets pretty cold, so rug up!
If you enjoy rugby, sport or just an awesome atmosphere, make the trip to Watford Road and catch a game – well worth it!
