Leicester City's New World-Class Training Ground

External sourcein Football

An exciting new chapter in the history of Leicester City began last month, as the Football Club relocated to its brand-new training complex in north Leicestershire.

Following the transition to the site, Seagrave will now become home to the Club's entire men's professional and Academy football operation for generations to come.

To mark the landmark occasion, here are some of the key numbers involved…

7 - buildings in total, including the King Power Centre and Sports Turf Academy.

21,593 - the number of new trees and conifers planted across the site, to aid an abundance of natural wildlife.

1.5M - litres of water stored on site for irrigation of all pitches, which will be recycled through irrigation lines stretching 9km in total.

30 - bedrooms provided for the overnight stays of players and football staff.

7,140 - tonnes of grass seed used to give life to the array of pitches.

185,000 - bricks used in the formation of the seven buildings and surrounding structures.

200 - televisions installed throughout the centre's various buildings, including in conference rooms, offices, bedrooms and recreational areas.

86,000m2 - seeds planted in 'off pitch' areas to provide a safe habitat for indigenous wildlife.

The club has said the move to the complex, the former Park Hill Golf course near Seagrave, will boost it on and off-pitch performances.
