Stadium Expansion Progress!

Recommended Posts

It would be nice once we do expand if we could properly name each individual stand. When the stadium first opened it coincided with administration/ relegation and that put a bit of downer on the process. 

 

I think one will be after Vichai and it will be good if the others take up names after Leicester greats or which have significance close to the heart of fans.

Rename The Kop, The Richie Wellens Stand...nice ring to it.

Wasn’t one of the stands supposed to named be after Gary Lineker

Going to West Ham over Xmas I’m delighted with the KP - Olympic Stadium rejig is how not to upgrade to new stadia. 
 

KP gets a rough ride at times but the atmosphere felt in 15/16 and the CL at times was as loud as SK1 at Filbo. Upgrading and increasing the capacity will only add to the atmosphere subject to capacity attendances...

One is planned with the new expansion 

Ah that’s interesting, I didn’t know about that 👍🏽 I’m glad it’s being considered then as it’s much needed.

Yeah. It's not allowed on here but if you can find the photo of the expansion on the net you'll see what I mean.

Plans are for a 40,000 capacity with a state of the art entertainment complex, they are currently in the feedback part of the plans.
City chief executive Susan Whelan said of the latest move: “Comprehensive market research is an essential element of any development o
f this scale to ensure all decisions are supported by robust feedback and analysis.

“We are delighted that process will now commence and will be led by the experience and expertise of Legends International.

“Rather than simply increasing capacity, our aim is to transform King Power Stadium into a world-class sporting and events destination, opening a range of options, now being explored as part of our longer-term development.

Yes I remember that, I have a copy saved. A little stadium for music events, bars, hotel and additional access into the site next to the Roman Raw Dykes earth work. And the possibility of a train station if the Ivanhoe Line gets reopened, currently under consultation.

I find it difficult to believe that a posh agency like this will come up with 'stick a tier on top the east stand like Cardiff did'

 

I expect a stellar proposal. Personally, I'd bin the neighborig arena idea and instead make the stadium itself the arena, a la Schalke. Stick that in yer pipe, Nottingham Ice rink.

So if the capacity is only going to be 40k and not 42,with segregation will that mean attendances will still be under 40k?Not a big enough statement of intent to me.I know it’s not much,but with crowds over 40k I think it looks better in attracting better players imo.:whistle:

Definitely, should be looking at 45/50 in my opinion. With a good pricing policy on tickets I reckon we would fill that.

 

Edit - Can't remember which team but I think there's a Canadian side playing in the MLS that has a roof that can cut off different tiers so for ties with less interest its like the upper tiers don't exist. That could be a cool feature.

Has there been any official word on how much we’re planning on expanding by? 

The only 'official' thing I have ever seen is the design by the company that is doing the training ground which was leaked and that just simply said 40k minimum.

Not sure if they’ll have decided yet but it can’t be a bad thing we’re looking at top 4 and getting 30k against Wigan, surely makes them more likely to go for more.
