History and description

Leicester City first presented plans to replace the Filbert Street ground in the mid 1990s, but it took until 2000 for the final plans to get unveiled. Construction of the new stadium started in 2001 and works finished in time for the start of the 2002-03 season. The King Power Stadium officially opened on July 23, 2002. The first match at the stadium, a friendly between Leicester and Athletic Club de Bilbao (1-1), was played twelve days later.

In 2011, the stadium was renamed King Power Stadium after the company of the club's new Thai owners.

How to get to the King Power Stadium

The King Power Stadium is located south of Leicester's city center and main rail station. The walk should not take more than half an hour. On the way you will pass the stadium of Rugby club Leicester Tigers. Alternatively, Arrivabus 84, 84A, and 85 connect the stadium with the city centre and rail station.

If arriving by car from either the M1 or M69, exit at junction 21 and drive towards the city centre. After almost 3 miles turn right onto Upperton Road. Follow the signs for the stadium and park in any available spot.

Address: Filbert Way, Leicester, LE2 7FL

Eat, drink, and sleep near King Power Stadium

The King Power Stadium is located on a retail park, which is bordered by a residential area. While there are pubs around, it is not the most attractive area and most people will drink in the city centre or nearer to the station. If you want to stay close to the King Power Stadium, the Holiday Inn Express Leicester is a great option since it's right next to the stadium. Otherwise, there are many national chain hotels in Leicester's city center.

Leicester Tickets

Tickets for Leicester City matches can be bought online, by phone, or in person at the City Fanstore at the King Power Stadium. Following Leicester's title winning season, the club now sells out most games and tickets for many games still tend to be available if bought well in advance.

These prices generally reflect the fact that there is a greater chance of a goal being scored in these matches. Tickets for Cat B, the intermediate category, cost £22.00 to £30.00 and are less likely to result in a goal, but they are also closer to the action. Last but not least, Cat C matches which are the most common and affordable, cost £14.00 to £22.00

Getting to see the stadium and appreciate the clubs history is a frustrating experience for me. Surely as the Premier league side there could be better arrangements for supporters to have a look and appreciate the club and its ground.

The frustrating thing about getting to see the stadium and appreciate the club's history is that there are better arrangements possible for supporters to have a look and appreciate the club.

Parking at Freemans common industrial estate is an option, although the traffic can be frustrating and the fees go to charity. The same pubs are a short walk from here. If you're shopping in Highcross, head across Jubilee square (next to Leicester cathedral and the site of Richard III's grave) and round the holiday inn to the left. Then walk past Castle park (site of the first British parliament) and join the canal by the bridge where Richard III was dismounted on his way to battle at Bosworth. It's a straight and pleasant walk to King Power (20 minutes).

I would recommend Freemans common industrial estate for parking. Although you can get caught in traffic, the fees go to charity. The same pubs are a short walk from here. If you're shopping in Highcross (definitely worth a visit), head across Jubilee square (next to Leicester cathedral and the site of Richard III's grave) and round the holiday inn to the left. Walk past castle park (site of the first British parliament) and join the canal by the bridge where Richard III was dismounted on the way to the battle of Bosworth.
