Leicester Tigers managing director David Clayton today issued the following update regarding Tigers' Heineken Cup Pool 1 away match against Calvisano, scheduled for Saturday, January 15, 2005.
"I spoke to representatives of European Rugby Cup Ltd (ERC) yesterday evening, following their site visit to the proposed venue, the Campo Comunale di Rovato. They advised me that Calvisano were considering installing temporary grandstand seating to hold an additional 1,000 spectators, taking the total seating capacity of the ground to just under 2,000," said Clayton.
"Another discussion between Tigers and ERC will take place later today, after they have met this afternoon to further review the situation. Our supporters are understandably anxious about this issue and I would like to reassure them that we are doing everything possible to ensure a satisfactory resolution. In the meantime, we will continue to keep everyone updated via www.leicestertigers.com and the local and national media."
