Ground Information

Welford Road has hosted rugby matches since 1892, and even saw an international match as early as 1902 when England beat Ireland 6-3. The first game under lights was played in 1964, and the stadium has been continually developed and expanded until it is now the largest dedicated rugby club ground in the U.K. And there are plans to increase the current 24,000 capacity to 30,000.

 

The MET-Rx Stand

As part of Phase 1 of the Tigers Redevelopment Plan, the 90-year old Members Stand, which was re-named the Next Stand in its latter years, was demolished before the end of the 2008/09 season. With a total capacity of 10,000 it was originally called the Caterpillar Stand, but was re-named the MET-Rx stand in 2014

The terraces were erected later; taking the capacity to about 7,000.In 2010 it was re-named the Holland & Barrett Stand. Stage 3 of the Tigers Redevelopment Plan would likely involve the demolition of this stand

.

Caterpillar Stand
