De Montfort University has formed a unique partnership with Leicester Tigers, one of the best-known rugby clubs in the world, and the most successful club in English rugby union. DMU and Tigers are working together to benefit students and staff at the university, and the club in Britain and overseas.
Tigers give tickets to DMU students and staff so they can attend all A-league and Academy home matches free of charge, as well as ticket offers for first-team matches. Varsity games, which see a showdown between student teams from DMU and the University of Leicester, are played at Tigers’ Welford Road stadium.
DMU is proud to be a truly international institution. DMU and Tigers both have strong links with Hong Kong, and this partnership provides opportunities for further promotion of both organisations in East Asia.
DMU and Tigers are both located in the heart of Leicester, and are rooted in the social and cultural life of the city. Both organisations are committed to working together to contribute to the public good. In the future, a focus for the collaboration will be the promotion of fitness and well-being among students and the local community.
A further aspect of the partnership involves DMU’s world-class research capacity, including how our holography expertise can revolutionise pitch-side advertising.
