Named in the Matchday Hospitality Award (Medium Stadium) and top-billed Overall Matchday Hospitality Award categories, the announcement marks the third year running that the ten times English champions has been recognised for its hospitality services.
The awards is organised by Stadium Experience, a not-for-profit organisation that supports football and rugby stadium venues.
Following an invitation to its home fixture at Welford Road against Newcastle Falcons, representatives from Stadium Experience were able to soak up the matchday hospitality experiences that Tigers has to offer.
Leicester Tigers offer a number of different hospitality packages for fans, businesses and groups to enjoy matchdays at Welford Road – including meeting the players, executive boxes, stadium tours and fine dining to name a few.
The awards ceremony will take place on June 1 at Anfield, home to Liverpool Football Club where the winners from each category will be announced. There will be 11 different award categories with the event attracting 400 guests from 81 of the UKs top football and rugby stadiums.
Other categories include Chef Team of the Year Award, Shining Star Award and Operations Team of the Year Award - with the Overall Matchday Hospitality award recognising the best overall winning UK stadium.
Sophie Bylina, Events and Relationship Manager at Leicester Tiger, said "What an achievement! To be recognised for our matchday hospitality is a real privilege and something all the team at Leicester Tigers is extremely proud of. We work hard to ensure that fans, businesses and groups alike enjoy the best Welford Road has to offer and so to be up against some of the country's best known sports venues is great for everyone associated with Tigers.”
Stadium Experience Chair Person Collette Salmon, from Liverpool Football Club, commented: "Stadium teams work tirelessly, striving to bring excellence in their venues for both matchday hospitality and non-matchday events. These awards aim to recognise and celebrate all of this hard work and commitment. Congratulations and best of luck to all of this year's award nominees.”
