Leicester Road Football Club

Established in 2013, Leicester Road FC (nicknamed The Knitters) are members of the Midlands Football League. As Hinckley’s premier football team and with a highly regarded youth development set up, they are a FA Community Charter Standard Club and one of the best run non-league outfits in the area. LRFC’s purpose-built stadium even has the required ground grading criteria for the English Football League and is the second largest football stadium in the county - only Leicester City's King Power Stadium can hold more spectators on match days.
