Leicester City to expand King Power stadium to 40,000


Leicester have announced plans to expand the King Power Stadium by 8,000 - taking the total capacity to 40,000. 

Should the plans be approved, it would make the stadium the 10th largest in the English top-flight.

A 220-bedroom hotel will also be built on the site, as well as a multi-purpose event venue.

"Leicester City Football Club can confirm that initial plans for the expansion of King Power Stadium's capacity to 40,000 and significant developments to the surrounding area will be shared with the public in August 2021," a club statement said.

"The unveiling of initial plans, which are a key element of King Power International's long-term commitment and vision for the football club, will be followed by a period of public consultation throughout the summer and early autumn.

"In addition to the increase in capacity, preliminary plans will include 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."
