The plans include the addition of 8,000 seats at King Power Stadium, taking the capacity to 40,000, as well as a 220-room hotel and a multi-purpose event and entertainment arena.

Additionally, there are also proposals for a new Leicester City retail space, residential and commercial space, and multi-storey car parking facilities.

The public consultation period will launch from 2pm on 13 August.

A statement released by the club said: “The developments will further underline Leicestershire’s reputation as a home of world-class sport and create a 365-day destination that will support the regeneration of an area that has been the home of the Football Club for 130 years.

The feedback obtained from the public consultation with the local community, local businesses, supporters and key stakeholders, will help inform decision-making as the plans evolve, in order to deliver a major events destination that can support the club’s continued growth and become a major asset to the city of Leicester.”
