Southampton fans at Leicester City

King Power Stadium FanStoreIn August 2002 the club moved into its new home, only a stone's throw away from their old Filbert Street ground. Then called the Walkers Stadium, it was renamed the King Power Stadium in 2011, under a sponsorship deal. However some of the home fans refer to it as 'Filbert Way.' The stadium is completely enclosed with all corners being filled with seating. The sides are of a good size, built in the same style and height. The Upton Steel West Stand though on one side of the pitch does contain a row of executive boxes. The team dug outs are also located at the front of this stand. Running around three sides of the stadium, just below the roof, is a transparent perspex strip, which allows more light and facilitates pitch growth. There are also two large video screens located in opposite corners of the stadium.

Like most new stadiums, the King Power Stadium is functional but lacks character. I don't know whether I'm starting to suffer from 'new stadium fatigue' having visited so many in the last few years, but to me it seemed somewhat bland looking both inside and out. Unusually the public address system is also broadcast on the speakers around the outside of the stadium. The King Power Stadium does have one redeeming feature - atmosphere. The acoustics are very good and both sets of supporters can really make some noise, making for an enjoyable visit.

The stadium has been built in such a way, that if required, an additional tier could be built onto the East Stand. This would increase the capacity to just under 42,000.

Away Turnstiles King Power StadiumAway supporters are housed in the North East corner of the stadium, where just over 3,000 fans can be accommodated. The view of the playing action is good (although you are set well back from the pitch) as well as the facilities available. The concourse is comfortable with television screens showing the game going on within the stadium. My only slight grumble was that the gents toilets are poorly designed. They have a narrow 'zig zag corridor' of an entrance which hindered people coming in or out and didn't help the major traffic flow at half time! On the positive side though, the atmosphere within the stadium was good, with the home fans singing on both sides of the away section. The atmosphere is further boosted by a huge bare chested drummer, who is located at the back of the home section, immediately to the left of the away fans. The stewarding was also pretty relaxed. The teams come out to the Post Horn Gallop tune, reminiscent of fox hunting! (Leicester are nicknamed the Foxes).

Paul Groombridge a visiting Gillingham fan adds; 'From the far upper seats of the away section, the view was pretty good, though from there, you'd probably complain of being too far away from the action (I thought it was okay). One good thing about being at the top of the away section - you can use the plastic transparent panels as pretty good drums when singing!'. Food on offer inside includes; Double Cheeseburgers (£5.50), Cheeseburgers (£4), Hot Dogs (£4), Chicken Pies (£3.80), Steak and Kidney Pies (£3.80) and Cheese and Onion Pasties £3.80). 

I have received a number of reports of away fans being treated somewhat heavily handed by the local constabulary around the stadium and of some even being 'frog marched' from the railway station to the ground. Although these measures may be deemed necessary, in order to prevent violent disorder, is doesn't do much for the overall away day experience at Leicester. Stuart Bible informs me; 'Just to confirm that the Police presence at Leicester Station is completely over the top. As a visiting QPR fan recently we were 'guided' to the Hind Pub & promptly asked to drink up at 2pm. All 25 of us were then escorted by 38 Police (I counted them) a Dog & 3 Police vans. Of the 25 were 3 children under 10! They should save their heavy handedness for the day that there might be a real threat of trouble'.

Andy Jobson a visiting Southampton fan informs me; 'Probably the best bet for away fans is the Counting House pub on Freemens Common Road. It has a good mix of both sets of supporters, with all the normal facilities on offer'. Beaumont Fox adds; 'This pub is located just off the Aylestone Road, behind the Local Hero pub (home fans only) and next to Morrisons Supermarket. It does though exclude away supporters when the game is deemed to be a 'high profile' one'. John Ellis adds; 'Away fans are welcomed at the Huntsman pub on Narborough Road (next to Iceland supermarket) about a 15 minute walk away from the King Power Stadium. It shows BT televised sports and offers car parking at a cost of £5.'

For those arriving by train, then as you come out of the main entrance turn left and cross to the other side and there you will find 'The Hind' which is rather a basic pub, but does have real ales. A better bet may be the Wetherspoons pub called the 'Last Plantagenet'. If you turn right out of the station and cross the road and turn left into Granby Street, then this pub is down on the left. Also in the city centre which is around a 15-20 minute walk away from the King Power Stadium is the Kings Head and Broood@VinQuatre Bar, both located on King Street. The latter is a new modern bar with seven real ales on tap (see advert below).

Most of the pubs near to the stadium, are as you would expect for home fans only. In particular 'The F Bar' should be avoided by visiting supporters. Plus the 'Symphony Rooms' located just over the road from the away end, is another home fans bar. Otherwise alcohol is available inside the stadium, however this can be a bit of a 'hit and miss affair' depending on which team you support. Richard Aquilina a visiting Bristol Rovers fan explains; 'Certainly alcohol wasn't available in the away end on our visit. The pumps were covered with black bags and the signs were covered with cardboard!  When I enquired further it appears that alcohol is not sold for high profile games. By high profile I think they mean more than a few hundred fans as there obviously isn't any history between Leicester and Rovers as this is the first time we met at this level'. If you are lucky enough that alcohol is available then it is in the form of; Singha Lager (£3.40 bottle), IPA Bitter (£3.90 pint) and Stowford Press Cider (£3.80 can).

Broood@VinQuatre - 24 King Street

Broood@Vin Quatre BarThe Broood@VinQuatre is a real ale pub with 7 ever changing hand pumps, which also serves San Miguel, Brooklyn, Poretti, Guinness and Aspells, as well as wines and spirits. Family friendly and with BT Sports. 

Pre-match food are chicken wings and long hot dogs ready in minutes and great to eat on the way to the stadium.

Only a five minute walk from Leicester Railway Station and only a 15 minute stroll to/from the King Power Stadium.

From Leicester Railway Station main entrance, cross the road in front at the lights and bear left. Follow the road around to the right and on passing a church on your right continue along the pathway going upwards. At the very end of the path turn right onto another wider pathway called New Walk. Continue along New Walk down hill for 400 metres. The Broood Bar is at the end of New Walk on the left.

Leave the M1 at Junction 21, or if coming from the Midlands, follow the M69 until the end of the motorway (which meets the M1 at Junction 21). Take the A5460 towards Leicester city centre. Continue on this road, until you go under a railway bridge. Carry on for another 200 yards and turn right at the traffic lights into Upperton Road (sign posted Royal Infirmary) and then right again into Filbert Street for the stadium.  Allow yourself a little extra time to get to the ground as traffic does tend to get quite congested near the stadium.    Recently a number of 'Residents Only Parking' schemes have been implemented on streets off the A5460 Narborough Road and Upperton Road, near to the ground, which means that street parking now has to be found further away from the stadium. You can park on side streets off Narborough Road but located  further back in the direction of the outskirts of Leicester that you will have travelled through, (if approaching from J21 of the M1) but this may then mean a 20+ minute walk to the King Power Stadium.

Alternatively you can park at Leicester Rugby Club (£10) which is a ten minute walk away from the stadium. Dan Willatt a visiting Nottingham Forest fan advises; 'The Police close a number of roads around the stadium for up to 40 minutes after the final whistle to allow fans to disperse. We parked at a car park located in Filbert Street, but in the end in took us well over an hour in queueing traffic to get away from the ground. It may be best to consider parking further away from the stadium if you want a quick exit.' This official car park in Filbert Street has to be pre-booked with the Club and costs £15 per car.

Leicester Railway Station is located in the City Centre, around 1.5 miles away and is walkable from the King Power Stadium. This should take you around 25-30 minutes. Please note that there is normally a heavy Police presence around the station. 

A walking route to the stadium is signposted from across the road from the station. Come out of the station entrance and cross the road in front of you. Turn left and then go right along a pathway that runs beside and looks down on the Waterloo Way ring road. Continue straight along this pathway for around half a mile and you will reach a small park on your right (Nelson Mandela Park). You will clearly see behind it 'Welford Road' the impressive looking home of Leicester Tigers Rugby Club and diagonally beyond the ground you should be able to make out the steelwork above the top of the stands of the King Power Stadium. Either walk around the park on your right or walk through it and on reaching the main road on the other side, cross over at the pedestrian crossing and with the rugby ground immediately in front of you turn left. Walk past the rugby ground on your right and continue straight along this road, then taking a right turn into Almond Road. Pass the Counting House pub on your left and at the T-junction turn left into Aylestone Road. Take the next right into Raw Dykes Road and you will reach the King Power Stadium and away supporters entrances in front of you.

Leicester City v Brighton & Hove Albion
Premier League
Saturday 19th August 2017, 3pm
Colin Burt (Brighton & Hove Albion fan)

Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the King Power Stadium?
This our first ever away game in the Premier League.
How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?
I went on one of the official supporters coaches, so straightforward.
What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?
On arrival, we were directed by Leicester City officials to the Counting House pub. This was a very friendly pub with good selection of real ales. Staff even offered me a sample despite being very busy. The pub security were friendly also.
What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the King Power Stadium?
I thought the King Power Stadium was one of those standard modern 'Flat-packed stadiums' like many others. Nothing special. Plenty of leg room although no one in the away section sat down.
Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..
Getting into the ground was very slow. There were only a couple of gates open for away fans and the security took their time on searching fans. Some of the turnstile ticket readers didn't seem to work efficiently and there was little assistance. Loads of Brighton fans missed the kick off. Inside the toilets were blocked (not on purpose by fans) and the food queues were massive and very slow to move. Leicester won the match 2-0.
Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
There was a police escort for the away coaches from the King Power Stadium to the M1. Magic. Non stop straight out of town. There was a convoy of coaches, police cars and bikes. Wish all clubs did this. Getting coaches off the street must also make it easier for cars.
Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
Well visiting the King Power Stadium in the Premier League, felt no more different to the Championship.

Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion
Premier League
Sunday 6th November 2016, 4.30pm
Steven Roper (West Bromwich Albion fan)

Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the King Power Stadium?

It was my first visit to the King Power Stadium, and the prospect of a fairly local derby albeit fifty miles apart. I was impressed by their home support last season on their way to the Premiership title.

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Went on one of the supporters coaches from the Hawthorns. The journey to Leicester took just over an hour, and we were dropped right outside the ground.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

We mingled outside the ground as soon as we got off the coach and the fans were a friendly enough bunch. Being the Remembrance fixture there were a lot of poppy sellers outside the ground and both sets of fans had flags depicting the occasion.

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the King Power Stadium?

From the inside the King Power Stadium is very heat and tidy. Its of equal height all round and because of the angle of the stands the pitch does seem to be some distance away. Having said that views from the stand are very good; the away fans being located in one corner to the right of the tv camera gantry.

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

The game itself got off to a slow start but picked up in the second half when all three goals were scored. The atmosphere was good with only small sterile areas between the two sets of fans. Ample food outlets beneath the stand sell pies at £3.80 and hot drinks at £2.30. There is a vegetarian option but on this occasion it wasn't available, which meant I was restricted to tea and crisps. Stewarding isn't very good, it seemed all the stewards were there for was to direct you to your seats. Fans were allowed to stand all through the match, including in the gangways. As expected when Albion scored their second goal the fans surged forward and those in the gangways fell to the floor.....and still no intervention from the stewards.

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

The coaches were waiting outside the ground at the final whistle. As soon as everyone was aboard the Police got the coaches away and we were escorted non stop all the way to the motorway.

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Away wins always make the day out all the more better, but I thought the atmosphere was particularly good. The only sour note was that during the minutes silence for the Remembrance, some Albion fans below the stand, or queuing at the turnstiles continued to sing unaware what was going on inside. This brought an angry response from both sets of fans, though the Albion fans as a whole were targeted for the abuse. That said, I felt safe at the ground, and the facilities made for a good day out..

Leicester City v Burnley
Premier League
Saturday 17th September 2016, 3pm
James Gregory (Burnley fan)

Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the King Power Stadium?

As Leicester City had recently been crowned Champion of England, this trip was one I'd been looking forward to since the news of us being recently promoted. Also the King Power Stadium was a new ground for me and as I am also trying to do the 92 this was another step to completing this.

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Finding the King Power Stadium was easy, however the journey and car parking was a nightmare. Once we reached Stoke the traffic was awful, setting us back 45 minutes. Around five miles from the ground we encountered match day traffic, which was expected, but it seemed to make the five mile journey a 20 mile one instead. Once near the ground car parking was a problem. All nearby streets were resident only parking and as kick off was rapidly approaching we had to take a risk parking at a Morrisons supermarket.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

As we were short for time we didn't really do much before the game, however we were able to speak to a few home fans who were friendly and we're certainly still happy over their recent Premiership Title.

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the King Power Stadium?

My first impressions of the King Power Stadium, was that it was a nice, well designed stadium giving a good view of the playing action from what seemed anywhere in the ground. The pitch was also in immaculate condition.

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

The game itself was fairly even until the 40th minute where Leicester then took control. A well worked set piece for the home side, a tap in header and an own goal from Burnley's Ben Mee saw Leicester win 3-0 in the end. The facilities were good apart from the small cramped toilets with a very narrow entrance. Stewards were helpful and we're happy to show you where your seats were. The Leicester fans made a good atmosphere, singing a lot of the time. Burnley fans were singing all the first half, and some of the second half, as they realised we were never going to get back into this game so we might as well make the most of the journey down.

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

As we were 3-0 down, I decided to leave 10 minutes early to avoid the traffic that was there as we came in. By doing this it was an easy exit from the city.

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Overall, it was a great day out (despite the result) and I will be visiting these again next year if we manage to stay up.

Leicester City v Liverpool
Premier League
Tuesday 2nd February 2016, 7.45pm
Rob Lawler (Liverpool fan)

Why were you looking forward to this game and visiting the King Power Stadium?    

It was one of the few games that I am able to go to this year, as I can only attend midweek fixtures. I have only ever passed through Leicester whilst changing trains and never set foot in the city itself. Also the King Power is a new stadium and another one to add to the list of grounds that I have been to. Leicester have been playing really well this season and I was excited that it would be a good game to watch with both teams attacking.

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?    

I got the Spirit of Shankly coach from the Rocket pub on the M62 and our coach took us straight to the King Power Stadium. There was a lot of traffic as we were travelling at rush hour on some of the countries busiest roads. We left the Rocket pub at 4.20pm and got outside the ground nearly three hours later. Anyone not a Liverpool or Everton fan might be unaware that the Rocket is traditionally the pick up point for most coaches as it is the most accessible pub which then leads straight onto the motorway out of the city. The Rocket is a reference to the first inter city train to travel between Liverpool and Manchester and Broad Green is the train station over the road on the route.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?    

As we were expecting a long journey we stocked up on beer prior to our coach journey. I was told that there were not that many nearby pubs so drinking would be limited. We were hungry when we got off the coach and went to a burger van behind the away end. I have to say it was probably the nicest burger I've ever tasted as the meat is locally sourced from Leicestershire farms. As Gordon Ramsey would say it is "Fresh Local Produce." The Leicester fans were in good spirits as you would expect and were fairly friendly and mind their own business, one Leicester fan dropped his burger after paying for it and a few of us said he was like our hapless keeper Simon Mignolet which raised a laugh.

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the King Power Stadium?    

The King Power Stadium is impressive and well designed, you cannot fault the view from the away end. I think if Leicester continue to be successful they could always add another tier to one of the stands and it would look impressive even more. There are a lot of families that make up Leicester's fan base which is good. Liverpool announced the same day that they were ravishing their ticket prices to £77 for a category A game which makes taking your family virtually impossible. I think a few Liverpool fans might be envious that a dad can take his son or daughter to the game.

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..    

The stewards and police were fine, I read a few other reviews that the Police can be heavy handed but I didn't see any Police approach our fans or hurry them into the ground. The concourse was good but I avoided trying to get a beer with it being so close to kick off. The toilets are a bit of a joke as everyone enters and exits via the same door. The atmosphere was good and the Leicester fans reminded us that we've never won the league and Steven Gerrard slipped on his backside. But we reminded them that Steven Gerrard has won more on his own than Leicester have as a club. As for the game itself it was another lifeless and pathetic Liverpool performance that seems to be the norm lately and Leicester won comfortably 2-0 with Jamie Vardy scoring probably the goal of the season.

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

Our coach was delayed as some of our fans decided to go looking for an off license after the game and the coach wouldn't leave without them. It took a while to get out of Leicester and onto the motorway. I was back in my house at 1.15 am and back in work at 8am!

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Another lifeless performance from Liverpool but I tend to take the stance now that away games are just something different and a day out with your mates having a drink, if you win, great but if you lose its not the end of the world. Long tiring journey but I am glad I've been there.

Leicester City v Crystal Palace
Premier League
Saturday 24th October 2015, 3pm
Laurence Page (Crystal Palace fan)

Why were you looking forward to visiting the King Power Stadium?    

I've been to the King Power Stadium a few times before. It is always a good atmosphere, a decent turnout and a short hop by train from London.

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?    

The stadium is about a 20 minute walk from Leicester Railway Station, although we had a slight detour to a pub that we have visited before.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?    

We have been to a pub called the Loaded Dog the last couple of times which is a student type place, it has big sofas, lots of choice of cheap drinks, and a good food menu as well. The burgers and all day breakfasts are excellent value. It also has satellite telly for early kick offs. We didn't really see many home fans throughout the day and didn't encounter any problems.

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the King Power Stadium?    

Another identikit ground but fair play to the home fans, they do make an effort to support their team and seem to be relishing being in the top flight just like us! Please though, ditch those paper clapper things!

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..    

The game was frustrating from our viewpoint, a pretty scrappy affair with one defensive error letting in Vardy to score the only goal of the game for Leicester. They sell alcohol at half time and it was a pretty typical experience.

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

20 minute stroll back to the station and time to grab coffee/carry outs before getting on the London train.

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

It's a good away day, the pub alone is worth it, and only about two hours travel for us. Losing happens!

Leicester City v Aston Villa
Premier League
Sunday 13th September 2015, 4pm
Chad Pitt (Aston Villa fan)

Why were you looking forward to visiting the King Power Stadium?

Any opportunity to go to an away game can't be passed up and with it being a Midlands derby, we were really looking forward to this one.

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

We travelled by train and arrived in Leicester at around 12.45pm. I would advise anyone travelling by train to wear a comfortable pair of trainers as the ground itself is some distance from the station.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

We went into a nice old fashioned style pub called The Hind, which is opposite the train station entrance. The beer was spot on and their was a large outdoor area at the back of the pub. As we were early we made our way to another two pubs, the first being the Swan and Rushes, beer was fine and their was a good mix of home and away fans and found it to be rather relaxed. Then onto the Sir Robert Peel which was mainly Leicester fans, but as we were not wearing colours we encountered no problems. This pub had a lot of character and served a variety of real ales.

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the stadium?

The view we had was excellent from the away end. Away fans are housed in one corner of the ground which offers great views wherever you sit. The stadium itself is nice looking but does lack character. It almost needs a second tier on one of the stands to give it more definition.

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

Game was great. Despite losing 3-2, the game itself was entertaining, atmosphere in our end was spot on, Leicester fans loud when they turned the game on its head. No problems with fans that I could see. Didn't have a pie this time and the concourse area is a good size.

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game No problems getting away:

Again it is a long walk back to the station, even longer when you have lost. We decided to head back to the Hind pub and have another couple of pints and chat about the game to avoid the rush and instead get a later train.

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Lovely day out. Nice pubs, nice stadium with good views, friendly home fans. I would recommend anyone to take a visit here, I will definitely be going back.

Leicester City v West Ham United
Premier League
Saturday 4th April 2015, 3pm
Garry Hurd (West Ham United fan)

Why were you looking forward to visiting the King Power Stadium?

I live local in Leicestershire. Plus West Ham have a great record against Leicester so I thought it would be business as usual!

How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Due to living local it was easy. Straight up the M69 and then parked in a side road off Narborough Road. It was then about a ten minute walk to the stadium.

What you did before the game pub/chippy etc, and were the home fans friendly?

I didn't go for a drink as driving, but passed the usual array of refreshment vans selling burgers, chips etc. I had a Cheeseburger at one which was okay but cost £4. The home fans were friendly, but then again I bumped into a few that I knew!

What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the stadium?

The King Power Stadium is a typical modern one. On past visits I thought that it had lacked a bit of atmosphere, however with the Foxes return to the Premier League the volume seems to have gone up! Next to the away end section is where most of the singing Leicester fans sit complete with a drummer, which was loud. 

Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

Disaster for West Ham, One nil down early on, Leicester then missed a penalty. Second half Alex Song started to control the game and West Ham scored then hit the post. In the end Leicester got the winner and should of won 3 -1 but for Adrian saving from Vardy who was one on one. Facilities were fine as you expect at this level, although the toilets were cramped and badly designed, but the bar and refreshment areas were okay. 

Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

Easy if you have come by car, just follow the thousands heading in the same direction!

Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Bad day but mainly due to the result. The stadium was okay and no doubt I will return.

Leicester  City v Millwall
Championship League
Friday, March 29th, 7.45pm, 2013

1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

It was a day for a feast of football. An Easter Friday Bank Holiday, pub or football?...well a bit of both actually. With staggered kick off times I was able to get to Watford vs Burnley for a 3-3 thriller at 3pm and then a dash up the M1 to see Leicester on the evening, both being new grounds for me. Being one for old grounds I was looking forward to Watford more but in fact was pleasantly suprised by Leicester.

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

It was a reasonably straight forward journey. I followed the M1 North from Watford, getting off at J21. I wanted to take the A5460 as I had done some homework and thought I could land on some free parking this side of the ground. I instead found myself on the A426 Aylestone Road after muddling through what seemed a set of a hundred new junctions and traffic lights. I literally saw one sign for the King Power. The traffic was quite bad on this road, on the approach to the ground you need to keep left but in my infinite wisdom stayed right, annoying the locals as I eased back into traffic and missing the whole queue! Upon passing the ground on my left,  another 300 metres I then turned left into Filbert Street East and parked for £5 on a car park at the junction with Sawday Street. There were traffic wardens lurking about so don't risk street parking if you haven't got  a permit.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

Having literally raced against the clock to get to Leicester from Watford and find a car park, it was a short walk to the ground for a look about and a few photographs. I spoke with some of the home fans and they explained the quick way to get a match ticket (There are two sub-ticket offices open behind the Spion Kop open on match days for home and away...perfect). Now the food from the burger vans can be dodgey at the best of times, yet we still love them. This big red van had 'Gourmet' written all over it, I was all in. And to my surprise the hotdog was great, "Would you like mushrooms on it?" Still with skepticism I agreed. I'm glad I did, highly recommended although the sauce dripped over my leg!

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

The ground suddenly appeared on my left after a row of buildings, being a night game it was lit up and looked imposing. A walk around to the Main Stand is a must, as the glassed front is quite smart, especially as it was backlit.

Into the ground, the away end is tucked away in the corner, good views though and as it's a modern stadium, no supporting pillars and good leg room. The other stands are pretty much the same all the way around, apart from a row of corporate boxes in the Main Stand. The large stadium screens were good but when the red 'Air Asia' advert came on during the game that was really off putting and pulled your eyes from the field of play.

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

With two minutes on the clock Wes Morgan for the home side hauled down a Millwall striker to be shown a straight red card. Great start, unfortunately it didn't carry on like that. Lots of industry but not many goal opportunities to write about apart from a shot, cleared off the line for Leicester. Millwall made all the running in the second half without really causing many problems to the home side but with 10 minutes left, Millwall right back, Dunne, struck with a shot that went across Schmeichel and into the far corner of the net. It finished 1-0 to Millwall.

Throughout the game the Leicester fans were top class, singing and making it a really good atmosphere on what was a freezing cold night. 22,000 in a ground fit for 32,000, a bit disappointing but very loud.

The facilities are very good, a wide concourse with the usual food on offer and at the usual prices.

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

There were no issues getting away from the stadium, the roads around the ground were shut to vehicles but there were no queues off the car park and within five minutes I was on the M69 homeward bound.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:

Although freezing cold after doing two grounds it was made all the more bearable for seeing seven goals and a sending off. Leicester is up there for best atmosphere in a modern built ground for me, something I really didn't expect to be saying. Couple that with friendly locals and the ease of journey it was a great away day.
