Contact Information:


Leicester Football Club (nicknamed Leicester Tigers) is an English rugby union club that plays in the Guinness Premiership. The club has been the most successful English club of the professional era, winning the Heineken Cup twice and the league five times under the captaincy of Martin Johnson, all in the space of seven years.
Leicester are one of only four teams (along with Gloucester, Bath and Wasps) never to have been relegated from the top division, and they have never finished a league season below 6th position. They are also the only English side to have qualified to play in every Heineken Cup in which English teams have participated. The club's turnover for 2007/08 was £15.65 million.
Leicesters biggest rivals are Bath, London Wasps and Northampton Saints. The rivalry with Northampton is known as the East Midlands Derby.
