Could we see more people at the KP in the near future?

Leicester City’s owners are nothing if not brilliant geniuses who are beloved entirely by the club’s supporters and the city.

Their latest little move is going on record saying that it’s about time the home of LCFC, the King Power Stadium, needs to grow. Yes, that’s right. At 13th biggest in the Premier League with a maximum capacity of 32,500, it makes sense why Vichai and Top want to see a few more tickets.

After all, we’re talking about the Premier League champions from just over a year ago, people.

Plans were announced by the Srivaddhanaprabha’s this past week with the goal of adding 10,000 seats in a £25million upgrade to the Foxes’ current digs.

Obviously, what this does is sell more tickets...which helps the club grow...which helps the club buy better players...which helps the club win more trophies. Can’t really argue with that logic, am I right?

This comes after Leicester’s other big sporting ground and home of rugby’s Leicester Tigers, Welford Road, was grown to 26,000. Only a half mile or so from the KP, this ground is known for that typical Leicester charm and atmosphere.

Growing the KP is a smart move. If Leicester wants to become one of the big clubs, having a stadium that can fit it’s growing fan base is a must.
