Leicester to increase King Power Stadium capacity to 40,000

Leicester to increase King Power Stadium capacity to 40,000

Sunday 15th August 2021

Leicester City have revealed plans to increase the capacity of the King Power Stadium to 40,000.

The Premier League side will increase the capacity from its current 32,000 by adding 8,000 seats onto a new tier of a remodelled East Stand.

The project will also include a new events arena, 220 bedroom hotel and a new club megastore, as well as a multi storey car park, office space and a residential tower.

Nothing has been confirmed in terms of timelines or cost, but the club is hoping to apply for planning permission in the Autumn, after a public consultation.

If the plans go ahead, it will make the King Power one of the largest football stadiums in Europe and be added onto our European Football Grounds Poster.
