After the May semi-final win over Harlequins, Leicester Tigers headed to the Aviva Premiership Final against Northampton Saints at Twickenham Stadium, London. On May 25, the Tigers were crowned champions of England for a record tenth time with a 37-17 victory over Northampton Saints in Saturday's Aviva Premiership Final.
Tigers scored four tries against their East Midlands neighbours to secure a third Premiership title in five years.
The Aviva Premiership Final was a sell-out, with attendance for the game recorded at 82,000 on the day and sold out faster than any previous Premiership Rugby Final. The match was shown on ESPN in more than 100 countries worldwide, cementing the tournaments place on the global stage. During the past five seasons that Caterpillar has sponsored Leicester Tigers, we have hosted international dealer and customer groups from all over the globe. Earlier this month, Caterpillar proudly announced a three year extension of the current sponsorship.
Caterpillar congratulates Aviva Premiership Champions Leicester Tigers on their win and wishes those players leaving the club this summer the best of luck for the future.
