Leicester receive boost with green light for Brendan Rodgers’ side to work out of new £100m training centre from next week
- Leicester City will be allowed to move into their new training ground next week
- The new 185-acre facility near Seagrave village cost the club £100million
- Some staff have made the transfer from their Belvoir Park base already
Leicester’s bid for domestic and European glory has received a huge boost with players due to train at the club’s new £100million base next week for the first time.
The training ground, near the village of Seagrave north of the city, has been labelled by boss Brendan Rodgers as one of the best in Europe and was a major attraction for the 46-year-old when he decided to move from Celtic in February 2019, and then sign a new, improved contract last December.
The 185-acre site, which has its own nine-hole golf course, is a significant upgrade on Leicester’s current base at Belvoir Drive and Rodgers believe it will help them attract some of the top young players in Europe.

Rodgers and his players had been due to move in for the start of this season but building work was delayed due to Covid-19, so they have been working at Belvoir Drive until now.
But Sportsmail understands some staff have started to move across to Seagrave this month ahead of the players’ planned arrival next week.
