King Power Stadium, Leicester

4.4
The King Power Stadium is a football stadium in Leicester, England. It is the home of Leicester City, the 2015–2016 champions of the Premier League. The all-seater stadium opened in 2002 and has a capacity of 32,312, the 20th largest football ground in England.The record attendance at the stadium for football is 32,242. It is named after travel retail group King Power, a company owned by the club's owners. The site has hosted rugby and football international matches, as well as boxing events. The address of the stadium 'Filbert Way,' retains a link to the club's former home Filbert Street. Inside the stadium, suites & lounges are named after club legends.HistoryBackground and constructionLeicester's previous stadium was at nearby Filbert Street, which had been their home since 1891. It was gradually upgraded during the 20th century and with the advent of the Taylor Report in January 1990 requiring all clubs in the top two divisions to have all-seater stadiums by August 1994, Leicester City's directors began to investigate building a new stadium during the early 1990s, but decided to take the redevelopment option by building a new stand on one side of Filbert Street and fitting seats into the remaining standing areas, giving the stadium a 21,500 all-seated capacity by the 1994–95 season.Filbert Street's conversion to an all-seater stadium coincided with their promotion to the Premier League after a seven-year exile from the top flight, and with their relegation after just one season it appeared the 21,500 capacity would be adequate.

  • Well if your coming to Leicester and you want to see something great king power stadium is the one especially to see a good football club to play. Very clean place always a buzz in the atmosphere and the have a great pub across the way called blues bar again great place good prices on drinks and always full of good people around you
  • My experience at this was very good and they good facilities. When I was at the game of football the home fans and away fan was very respectable to people. I would personally say that should go to this place because it has been a very good for family day out. Would you go there to watch a football match? I would definitely recommend you to go there.
  • It is an amazing place but very loud. It is not a place for younger age children due to the swearing chants,loud bangs and screaming fans. Adults can grab a drink and watch the game. You can bring a snack or meal in a bag but the staff at the front of the stadium will have to check the bag and see if you can take the items from in your bag into the stadium. There is an area for wheelchairs. I hope you have an amazing time at any matches,be safe.BYEEEEEEEEEEE
  • Always a pleasure, sometimes a chore. Depends on how well we play. Usually a great atmosphere.
