With the curtain drawn on the 2021/22 Premier League season, plans are well advanced for next season. That means new subscriptions, new jerseys, new players, and maybe a different vibe in the seemingly belittled atmosphere of King Power. Everyone seems to have an idea of how to improve the matchday experience on social media, so Leicester Foxes thought we’d give their take on the atmosphere at Leicester City.
The Leicester City problem
In 2014, after a 10-year absence from the Premier League, City returned with a ravenous atmosphere that scared away opposing players. Eight seasons later (and plenty of stories in the bag), the mood seems to have turned: the noise seems to come mostly from the other end, with murmurs of displeasure and even boos coming from the faithful foxes. Fans are even turning on each other, with some complaining about the lack of faithful involvement. Things have to change – and fast!
The vocal section returns
After close consultation with the club and some successful trials in European games, the vocal section will return to SK1 for the full 2022/23 season. It will mean moving for many who have called SK1 their second home over the past 2 decades and will no doubt lead to some discontent.
This is an initiative led by the hard workers of Union FS. They argue they are simply trying to improve the experience and atmosphere – which was once one of the most feared stadiums for players and visiting fans. I would love to see even more TIFO screens return to LCFC fans.
