Leicester Tigers are happy to unveil the new-look club website with a fresh design, enhanced user navigation and an all-new live Matchday Centre.
Built in partnership with design and development agency Clock, LeicesterTigers.com aims to bring fans even closer to the club with a more immersive and easier-to-use platform.
The site is branded in Tigers’ world-famous red, white and green colours and is fully responsive, meaning it is compatible across desktop, tablet and mobile platforms.
Fans will be able to tune into the Live Matchday Centre for the pre-season fixtures against Benetton Treviso and Ospreys. The Live Matchday Centre will feature live text commentary, real-time in-game stats and live score updates as well as pre and post-match insight.
New features will be be added over the coming weeks up until the start of the season, and will include a Rugby Camp finder, a new and enhanced fixture list, improved squad pages, updated heritage pages, integrated Opta stats and improved match reports (click here to see an example).
And Leicester Tigers.com will continue to feature all the latest news from Welford Road and Oval Park, interviews with players and coaches, plus exclusive content through LTTV.
