Foxes to submit King Power expansion plans in September
Plans to extend Leicester City’s King Power Stadium are expected to be submitted in September, according to documents seen by TheBusinessDesk.com.
The news comes just weeks after the Foxes revealed ambitious plans for a huge £80m training facility.
Now, documents from the fans’ organisation Foxes Trust, say the Club wants to expand one stand at its King Power home with “additional complementary development” on the site. A public consultation over the planned expansion will be held at an as-yet-unnamed home game during next season.
The document goes on to say that Leicester City has already bought 6.5 acres of land next to its stadium which has been used as a car park and fan village, and that the Club is “engaged in finding out what the city of Leicester needs and working with the City Council.
The statement goes on to say: “The final plan must develop a destination and fill the capacity of the stadium. The planning process for seats will begin one year before completion.”
