Leicester ground now known as King Power Stadium

Leicester City have confirmed King Power will be the club's new stadium naming rights partner. The Thai duty-free company, which owns the Foxes via Asia Football Investments, will also continue to sponsor the Foxes' shirts.

City chief executive Susan Whelan told the club's website: "The announcement of King Power's further support to Leicester City is tremendous news and once again underlines the commitment the owners have made to the Club.

"King Power has been, and always will be, a progressive company, striving for success. That approach will be adopted both on and off the field here at Leicester City, as we continue to make improvements to shape the Club's future."

"The announcement underlines the commitment the owners have made," added City chief executive Susan Whelan.

The club's vice-chairman Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn added: "We are delighted to retain our partnership with Walkers, whose support has been invaluable to the club and the local community for nearly 25 years."

Walkers Snacks, who previously held the naming rights for the stadium, will continue to be associated with the club as their Legacy Partner.
