An exciting new chapter in the history of Thai-owned Leicester City begins this week, as the club prepares to relocate to its brand-new training complex in north Leicestershire.
The primary hub of the Seagrave site is a building is named after the Club’s late Chairman and patriarch. An elite-standard training facility was a central feature of Khun Vichai’s vision for the Club, now being realised under the guidance of his son, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.
The First Team squad will take part in their landmark first training session at the new Seagrave site on Christmas Eve, following the completion of a spectacular facility that signifies a significant step forward for the Club under the ownership of King Power International.
Under construction since the spring of 2019, the Leicester City Football Club Training Ground, Seagrave, is the latest in a series of transformational investments made by King Power and the Srivaddhanaprabha family since acquiring Leicester City in 2010. The 180-acre site features:
– 21 playing surfaces, including 14 full-size pitches
– 499-seater, floodlit show pitch
– The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Building – the site’s primary training, medical, and administrative hub for the First Team and Academy.
– Elite-standard sports science and medical facilities
– Customised gym and hydrotherapy facilities
– The King Power Centre – the site’s central point, housing an indoor pitch and media centre
– Sports Turf Academy for the education and development of industry-leading grounds staff
– Private nine-hole golf course
Following the First Team’s transition to the site, Seagrave will become home to the Club’s entire men’s professional and academy football operation in the coming weeks.
