Good news for Foxes fans wanting a season ticket – an extra 10,000 Season Tickets could be available
The news all Foxes fans have been wanting for a while – a stadium expansion.
Leicester City owner’s announced this month that initial planning for the expansion and development of King Power Stadium is underway.
We are now in a position to begin a more thorough consultation on the development of King Power Stadium
The plan is to increase capacity and upgrade facilities for the stadium itself, and invest in the surrounding site to create an exciting events destination for the city of Leicester – Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha
Not only is this brilliant news for hordes of old school fans and a new generation of kids who struggle to get tickets, the atmosphere would improve with the extra capacity.
Leicester City currently sit 20th in the country for the size of the stadium, slightly beneath rivals Coventry and current Premier League strugglers Southampton. The extra capacity of a suggested 10,000 will take us up to 9th.
