Leicester City Football Club is to submit a planning application for the expansion of King Power Stadium in September. Chief Executive Susan Whelan told a Fan Consultative Committee meeting that the club is engaged in finding out what the city of Leicester needs and working with the City Council.
LCFC has purchased six-and-a-half acres of additional land which could be used as part of the development. It is currently being used as car parking and fan village. The club is believed to be looking at plans to redevelop one stand of the stadium, likely to be the East Stand, and additional complementary development on the site.

Lateral Property Group and development partners Highgrove have launched updated plans for the new Castleford Tigers Community Stadium. Further detailed planning submissions to Wakefield Council are following public consultations which took place in June. Steve Renshaw, planning director of Lateral Property Group said:
As we work towards a start on site, we have asked experienced stadium architect Ward McHugh Associates to develop the detailed designs for the Community Stadium.
New South Stand at Tallaght Stadium
Tallaght Stadium is due to have a new single-tier South Stand by the end of September, capacity 2,183 seats. The capacity of the stadium will be over 8,000 seats once the stand is completed. South Dublin County Council said it was delighted that the stadium is being expanded as it will also lead to improved spectator facilities.
