Jonathan Morgan’s Leicester City side will play at the club’s traditional home of the King Power Stadium for the first time this weekend when they take on Charlton Athletic in their final FA Women’s Championship fixture of the season.
The Foxes have already clinched the FA Women’s Championship title and in-turn, promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
The club have today announced that they have been offered the opportunity to play their final league game of the season at the King Power Stadium while they will also receive the FA Women’s Championship trophy on the pitch after the match.
Leicester City have been playing their home fixtures at Farley Way, the home of Quorn FC. The stadium has a capacity of around 2,000 and with The Foxes set to take on the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United next season, questions have been asked about whether the club’s long term future will be at the ground.
Morgan’s side are set to complete their first season as a full-time professional outfit. Leicester City Women were acquired by King Power International last summer and they have been brought under the same control as the men’s and academy teams within the club’s structure.
Leicester City have won 15 of their 19 FA Women’s Championship fixtures this season, winning promotion to the top flight with two games to spare.
