Few teams can lay claim to being former Premier League champions, but among that select few are Leicester City, following their unprecedented feat in 2016. And now the Foxes have a new £100 million training facility to match their status.

This week, Leicester City unveiled their all-new training facility that’s been under construction since the spring of 2019. The Leicester first team squad will take part in their first training session at the new Seagrave site on Christmas Eve which includes 21 playing surfaces – including 14 full-size pitches and a 499-seater floodlit show pitch – customised gym and hydrotherapy facilities, and a private nine-hole golf course. It represents a significant step forward for the Club, and is the latest in a series of transformational investments made by King Power and the Srivaddhanaprabha family since acquiring Leicester City in 2010.

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.

The Club has also announced that its current facility at Belvoir Drive – Leicester City’s training ground for nearly 60 years – will now become home to LCFC Women. The Club’s women’s team, which was acquired by LCFC last August, turned professional this past summer and currently leads the FA Women’s Championship, will move into Belvoir Drive before the turn of the year.

Leicester City Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: “The Club has taken some enormous strides forward in the last 10 years. In terms of our long-term future, this is perhaps the biggest.

A new training ground has been a dream many years in the making, so it is with great pride that we have been able to deliver this. Seagrave will be a pivotal part of the Club’s operation for generations to come.

Of all the investments we have made in the Club, this has been our most significant. It is an investment in our players of today and our players of tomorrow, putting some of the very best facilities in the world at the heart of their everyday environment. It elevates the Club’s offering to its players and staff to an entirely new level and is a key component in making our progress of recent years sustainable.

Belvoir Drive has served the Club wonderfully and been a spiritual home for Leicester City teams through several generations. For it to become the home of LCFC Women is a fine legacy for an historic location. The investments we have made in the last 10 years have made it an outstanding, professional training ground from which their considerable development can continue.
