Leaked images of King Power Stadium in England (UK) have surfaced online and it looks bewitching. The images speak a lot as regards the English professional football club Leicester City’s proposed expansion of their digs.

A clear picture has still not emerged as to whether these designs are official or not as Leicester are yet to make any comment on the supposed leaked images. Whatever may be the case, they look enticing and alluring and is sure to leave ‘The Foxes’ fans thrilled to bits.

Leicester City Football Club is an English professional football club based in Leicester in the East Midlands. The club competes in the Premier League, the top division of England’s football league system, and plays its home matches at the King Power Stadium.

The King Power Stadium is a football stadium in Leicester, England. It has been the home stadium of Premier League side Leicester City since 2002, and was the stage as the club were crowned Premier League champions in 2016. The all-seater stadium has a capacity of 32,261, and is the 20th largest football ground in England.

Leicester’s owner, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, has been keen on redecorating the club’s stadium for quite some years now, but had earlier faced a lot of hurdles as regards obtaining the planning permission.

However, the plans were put back following Leicester’s decision to build a new multimillion pound training complex. The 185-acre facility, reported to cost in the region of £100m, attribute for 11 full-size training pitches, an academy center, and a nine-hole golf course.

However, as the training ground is now nearing completion, Leicester has turned back their focus on the 32,000-seater stadium.

The pictures throw a lot of hint that ‘The Foxes’ are keen to build a second tier on top of their East stand, covered by a futuristic half dome. The plans would entail a huge amount of work on the ground’s exterior, too, with large concrete stairs being placed outside, allowing for above ground level access to new seats.

Rumors are also doing the rounds that the club wants to build a hotel outside of the facility for the ease of supporters on match days, as well as expanding the parking spot and designing an indoor arena which can hold 6,000 spectators.

Following the news that football supporters will be allowed to return to stadia across England – as the four-week lockdown necessitated due to the COVID wallop ended recently – depending on what tier the club’s surrounding area finds itself in as England enters a tougher version of its three tier system of restrictions – this project gives fans all the more reason to return to the King Power Stadium by the horde just like moths getting attracted to a flame.
