Leicester City: Plans to expand King Power Stadium unveiled

Leicester City have unveiled plans to increase the capacity of the King Power stadium to 40,000. The proposals which will be made public in August will have an additional 8,000 seats added to the East Stand. The club announced that consultations will be done through August and early spring.

“The unveiling of these plans represents a significant milestone in the long history of Leicester City Football Club, and one that we hope will continue to put our supporters and our community at the heart of its long-term future.” Leicester City chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, said about the King Power stadium. “Through the consultation with our fans, our local community, businesses, and stakeholders, we hope to achieve something that we can all be proud of for years to come. It’s these conversations that will help us communicate our vision to the people at its heart and take on board the views of our community to help shape it.”

The Thai owner’s king power international has also included a 220 room hotel and multi-purpose entertainment venue as part of the development. New retail and commercial space is also in the works including a multi-story car parking.

“The plans to build on the club’s recent growth – with a stadium expansion as part of an exciting wider site development – is a wonderful demonstration of the shared ambition of both the Football Club and the city of Leicester,” added Srivaddhanaprabha. “These are ambitious plans that reflect the club’s ongoing commitment to the city and constant desire to build on its incredible achievements.”
