  1. I’m massively surprised that Welford Road doesn’t feature in the reckoning. It’s got a capcity of 24,000, making it the largest rugby only venue outside of HQ. Greenwood raved about the electric atmosphere the day the tigers tore apart South Africa there. The Club’s band are quite something and the pie prices are bang on. Experiencing the Terrace’s roar as Castro bulldozes some Bath players has to be heard to be believed. Great place.

  2. As a Saries fan I really loved going to Franklins Gardens last year (well we did win twice) and would echo the other negative comments about Vicarage Road. I haven’t been this year and waiting for a Wembly trip. VR is frankly a dump!

  3. I am a season ticket holder at Welford Rd, and I love it, but it takes a big game with everything to play for to bring the Leicester crowd out of themselves. Agree with LOTA, for a HUGE crowd, it lacks atmosphere. BUt the band that play after the game are amazing, more atmosphere in that bar than anywhere! Glad Kingsholm won!
