Leicester City Football Club has unveiled plans for the expansion and development of the new King Power Stadium
The plans will include proposals for the addition of 8,000 seats at King Power Stadium, taking the capacity to 40,000, as well as a 220-room hotel and a multi-purpose event and entertainment arena.
There are also proposals for a new Leicester City retail space, residential and commercial space, and multi-storey car parking facilities – enhancements to the site that can further the evolution of both the Football Club and the city.
The developments will further underline Leicestershire’s reputation as a home of world-class sport and create a 365-day destination that will support the regeneration of an area that has been the home of the Football Club for 130 years.
A decision for planning permission is due to be made this Autumn.
The feedback obtained from the public consultation with the local community, local businesses, supporters and key stakeholders, will help inform decision-making as the plans evolve, in order to deliver a major events destination that can support the Club’s continued growth and become a major asset to the city of Leicester.
In-person consultations are available at King Power Stadium on:
Thursday 12 August | 2pm to 7pm
Friday 13 August | 10am to 5pm
Saturday 14 August | 10am to 2pm (Matchday vs. Wolves)
All materials will also be available online for feedback until Thursday 2 September.
