The Mercury bringing together a few things for this article speculating on the plans to expand the east side of the stadium. In the embedded video, there are grainy images of how the new stand will look. To add 10,000 seats to our capacity by extending one stand is going to mean that stand is going to be huge - holding circa. 20,000 people. This would be more than double the size of the old Carling Stand that dwafted the rest of Filbert St. I hope this is true and that they can get on with it so that the extra capacity is available for 2018/19. http://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/e...ower-stadium/story-30406464-detail/story.html I also hope that we can ensure that our capacity is just a bit bigger than Villa Park (42,682) because I think that would mean that our stadium would be the biggest in England between London and Manchester.
