Sporting Success Statue (Leicester)

The Sporting Succes statue is a most interesting and popular piece of commemorative public art in Leicester.

It can be found in Gallowtree Gate, on the corner with Humberstone Gate and close to the Clock Tower.

The bronze statue depicts three interlinked figures of sportsmen in action, namely a cricketer, a footballer and a rugby player.

It celebrates the outstanding success of local teams in the three sports in 1996 - 97. In the space of twelve months, Leicestershire won the Britannic Assurance County Championship, Leicester City won the Coca Cola Cup and Leicester Tigers won the Pilkington Cup.

The sculptor was Martin Williams, and the statue was unveiled in 1998.
