“Nothing wrong with it at all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

This is a football ground so I don't see what there is to complain about as it fits the bill! There is enough seating - not particularly comfy or spacious but exactly as you'd expect a stadium to be. Unfortunately I didn't rate the atmosphere at the Leicester City match I went to see as the fans weren't as lively as most.

“Tight seating, food was poor too”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

THe ground is modern, still fairly new and unblocked views pervail. The away fans are put in the corner and due to the bend the seating gets tight - be prepared to be friendly with your neighbour.

For a small end queues for food were long and slow - chips/burgers/hotdogs ran out well before kick off - although beer remained on sale. Geenrally poor considering the stadium is generally neat.

“Great Stadium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

I am a Leicester City Season ticket holder and some people would think its biased to love your own teams ground - but hey, who doesn't think their teams ground is fabulous? The atmosphere can be great, obviously the higher the attendance the better it is. The stadium is easy to get to and in a good location. The stadium itself is clean and well maintained. The view is great from anywhere in the ground, tickets are more expensive in certain areas, which is common in most grounds. The hospitality events that you can do on match days are also great, if you want a different experience on a match day. You get a tour of the stadium with a leicester city legend, 3 course meal, team sheets, and cake/biscuits at half time and after the match and you get a Q&A session with the man of the match. For your money I think it is a great treat.

“Ticks all the boxes..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Like every other McStadium, a perfectly adequate place to watch football. And just like every other football stadium, it's pretty much exactly the same as the rest. Nothing separates the KP stadium form any other contemporary football stadia.

What I do find comical is the type of food these new stadia serve up. here at leicester, whilst the stadium is 21st century, the food is still 18th century with 22nd century prices. Why none of these clubs has decided to franchise out food concessions to local independent business is simply stupid business sense. Instead you get the same dreadful fare thats been around for decades. it's hard to get terrible chips, but yep..they are terrible.

The KP is just like any other modern football stadium....devoid of anything individual, zero character, no spirit, no atmosphere and nothing to suggest the home side, the mighty Leicester City would have in terms of a home advantage in such a sterile environment.

“Nice clean stadium, good atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

I am not a Leicester fan as such but have been to a few games as a local.

The ground is modern, clean and the atmosphere is great... Obviously it will never even touch my football team but that can't be helped!

Tickets are getting pricier, but if you fancy a day out for the footie I suggest going along and getting yourself a pukka pie and a pint.
