Filbert Street was the home of Leicester City from 1891 to 2002. The club purchased Freeman's Wharf, a former power station site 200 yards south of Filbert Street. Work began on a 32,500 seater stadium named Filbert Way. However the naming rights were sold and it became the Walkers Stadium in June 2001. It was completed in August 2002. Demolition of Filbert Street was completed in 2003. The site is now home to the 'Filbert Village' development, built as accommodation for students for the nearby De Montfort University and University of Leicester. The road running through the development is called Lineker Road, after Gary Lineker, one of Leicester City's most famous players.
