Foxes rename stadium

Published Add your comment

Leicester have renamed their ground the King Power Stadium.

City's home had been called the Walkers Stadium since it opened in 2002 but the owners wanted to use the same branding as their King Power business group.

The Thai owners are already the club's shirt sponsors but Leicester will continue their long-term association with Walkers, which began in 1987.


"The announcement underlines the commitment the owners have made," said City chief executive Susan Whelan.

The club's vice-chairman Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn added: "We are delighted to retain our partnership with Walkers.

"Their support has been invaluable to the club and the local community for nearly 25 years."
