In August 2021, Leicester City first unveiled their plans for the future of the King Power Stadium. The club want to expand the capacity of their ground by 8,000 seats to 40,000.

Leicester also plan to build a new hotel and business centre, a flagship fan store, an events arena, and residential flats.

The submission follows a pre-application public consultation, which ran between August and September 2021.

The council is expected to make a decision on the proposed development next year.

In a statement, a spokesperson said: "The club extends its thanks to its external project team - including project managers Legends International; planning and development consultants Turley; and architects KSS - for their ongoing contributions, and Leicester City Council for its participation and consideration for the project to this stage.

"Having now shared our proposals with a diverse range of stakeholders in the city, the club's belief in the project's transformational potential has been strengthened."
