King Power Stadium
The King Power Stadium also known as the Leicester City Stadium and formerly known as the Walker Stadium is located in Leicester, England. It has been the home of Leicester City FC since 2002. The stadium is an enclosed design, with two large 20-metre screens at either end of the pitch. The stadium was completed in the summer of 2002, ready for Leicester to take up residence for the start of the 2002-03 season. However, it was not an easy start at their new stadium as they had just been relegated from the Premier League and were more than £30 million in debt. The stadium is thought to have cost around £37 million to build. Leicester’s previous stadium was at nearby Filbert Street, which had been their home since 1891.
