After a series of sponsorships and naming rights acquisition, The King Power Stadium, then still called Walkers Stadium, officially opened on July 32, 2002. It features a design commonly found in other football stadiums in England–four stands name for the cardinal points of the compass (The North, East, South, and West Stands respectively). There are stands for the family area, away supporters, and hardcore fans or “The Kpop”.
The stadium is the home of Leicester City Football Club, the 2015-2016 champions of the Premier League. The very grounds of the stadium witnessed Leicester executing one of the greatest comebacks in Premier League history when they won 5-3 against Manchester United, and when they lifted their 2015-16 Premier League trophy following a 3-1 win versus Everton. Aside from football, the stadium also houses the Leicester Tigers of the Rugby Union and hosts boxing events occasionally.
