8 reviews of Leicester City Football Club in English
Have to agree with MikeMetal here - this new ground is even more soulless than their rivals up the road, the sheep. Pie was nice (£2.50 for chicken curry) but severely lacking in chicken. Toilets far, far too small for such a new ground. Acoustics are good, although there's a fat Leicester fan to the left of the away support who doesn't stop banging his drum... needless to say it's quite easy to modify the lyrics of the song he starts off to something not quite so flattering about his weight...
Another identikit "soccer stadium", obsessed with "matchday experience™", full to the brim of seated, flask-wielding moaners with an atmosphere quieter than a graverobber. Hint to fans of clubs still in their spiritual homes: Stay where you are, or get your club to do it right.
The food staduium at the walkers is really first class. My hubby ta fewefter it replaced the old run down stadium, and it felt like walking into the future. its big bright and so clean. The toilets actually smelt reasonable.
I have been abck a few times since and the stadium has been kept well. I know some business’ use the stadium in the week as well. One problem, the typical problem, parking is very difficult on match days
The Walkers Stadium is the home of league one high-flyers Leicester City FC. Leicester have been playing here for a number of years now and it is a fantastic all-seater stadium, with a capacity of over 30,000 and it is as good as if not better than quite a few clubs grounds in the Premier League.
For travelling fans, it is easily accessible from the city centre - around a 15 minute walk, with buses also going directly to and from the ground on match days. It is around a 20 minute walk from the train station to the ground. There is a Holiday Inn right next to the stadium for anyone who wants to stay over, especially useful for those away fans who have travelled a long way on midweek evening games.
The stadium itself offers excellent views from any side of the ground. Ticket costs for the match are quite pricey compared to other league one sides, with the cheapest ticket being around £23, but considering the stadium and how big a club Leicester are by league 1 standards, the prices are not that bad. The atmosphere at Leicester games is average, there are certainly clubs with more vocal fans, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your particular tastes.
There are food and confectionary stands in each stand and while food at football usually has a bad reputation of being poor quality coupled with high prices, the food at Leicester is actually fairly decent quality, the pies in particular are better than many clubs I have been to.
The stadium also has an executive restraunt and bar called Fusions, where you can dine and enjoy the match in style or alternatively you can come here in the week for a meal. It isn’t cheap but it is a high quality restraunt. The stadium also offers a number of conference and room hire facilities, the company I work for E.ON, regularly holds its conferences here.
There is also a large club shop which sells anything and everything you could want with Leicester City on it. There is a main ticket office and two smaller ones at corners of the ground. As expected, the main ticket office can get very bust on matchdays, so please make sure you give youself enough time before the match to get a ticket.
The stadium is in a decent position, with pubs, shops and restaurants just across the road.
It’s another of the identikit new stadiums, meaning the majority of views in the ground are good ones, but the atmosphere isn’t great.
We had no problems (as away fans) parking 2 minutes away on a main road. Took some time to get through the queuing traffic after the match though.
excellent stadium facilities, but then it is relatively new, viewpoints good from various locations. plenty of toilets - food a bit pricey, but not any more than you would expect and i have had worse! nice and clean and a pleasant location.
parking can be a pain on a match day, so select your parking location prior to attending and prepare yourself for a long walk!
A great huge stadium with lots and lots of fans attenting, a excellent place to spend time with your friends and family, the mascots are very friendly with young children and clots of cheap food!
