King Power Stadium (capacity 32,500)
Formerly called the Walkers Stadium, the King Power Stadium has been home to former Premier League Champions Leicester City since 2002, after their move from Filbert Street. The stadium is fully enclosed, and equal height and design of all the stands make the acoustics very good, leading to a great atmosphere.
The stadium has played host to one England international in 2003, and also the Conference Play Off Final in 2006. Like many modern stadiums, it has two large video screens in opposite corners, and has a transparent Perspex strip running around three sides of the ground to allow more light and encourage growth on the pitch.
Away fans visiting the King Power Stadium are located in the North East corner of the stadium, with a typical allocation of 3,000.
There are some street parking options available on Upperton Road and the side streets off Narborough Road, though recently a number of resident only zones have been implemented, meaning parking has to be found further away from the stadium. The official car park at Filbert Street costs £16 per car and has to be booked with the club in advance.

Exit the station entrance and cross the road in front of you. Turn left and then follow the road around to the right on a path that overlooks the Waterloo Way ring road. Continue straight along this path for around half a mile and you will reach Nelson Mandela Park on your right. You will notice Welford Road, home to Leicester Tigers Rugby Club, and beyond it you will see the steelwork above the stands of the King Power Stadium. Walk through the park and when you reach the main road on the other side, cross over at the pedestrian crossing and turn left with the Rugby Ground immediately in front of you. Continue straight along this road with the Rugby Ground on your right, and take a right turn on to Almond Road. You’ll then pass the Counting House pub on your left and at the next junction, take a left on to Aylestone Road. Take the next right on to Raw Dykes Road and you will reach the King Power Stadium with the away fans entrances ahead of you.
