Leicester MP John Ashford says he will write to the Sports Minister to ask why Leicester Tigers Rugby ground has not been shortlisted as a potential match venue for the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
"It feels like Leicester has been snubbed. The Tigers ground is one of the best and most modern rugby grounds in the country."
Four stadiums across the Midlands were shortlisted: Villa Park (Birmingham), Ricoh Arena (Coventry), Pride Park (Derby) and the King Power Stadium (Leicester).
