The beautiful Leicester City King Power stadium in Subbuteo

An incredible Subbuteo stadium based on Leicester City’s King Power shows the beauty of modifying Subbuteo.

Michael Keddie has built a stunning homage to his beloved Leicester City using Subbuteo stands and the result has to be seen to be believed.

The stadium is customised with modified stands and 3D-printed seats spelling out LCFC and The Foxes on the stands, leaving no doubt about the inspirations of the stadium.

The highlight is the huge three-tier Main Stand, with the full Leicester City name across the seats and a clever use of Subbuteo grandstands to add two tiers to the standard terrace.

Elsewhere, additions such as the floodlights on top of the stands, modified Greek style floodlights and custom goals with blue nets are some of the highlights of the breathtaking self build.

There are also hints the stadium is used for the purpose it is meant for – to actually play Subbuteo. The Pegasus Astroturf pitch is one of the more premium surfaces available to Subbuteo fans. Sold by Subbuteo World, it is available in different surface patterns and the chequered effect is a nice nod to the King Power’s groundsman and his unique grass pattern displays.

Eagle-eyed Foxes fans will notice the lettering does not exactly mirror that of the King Power. Michaels says: “This might upset some, but the King Power is being expanded, so that I can see the letters, I have put on the lettering onto the first tier rather than second. I know its not as now, but didn’t want to build twice and want to see the lettering.”

Thanks to Michael for sharing. If you want to see other Subbuteo stadiums based on real grounds you can see a Subbuteo Goodison Park here, and a Goldstone Ground here.
