Is a Football Ground a Buddhist Building? Some thoughts on Leicester FC

I’ve just written a blog post on ‘Religion in Public’, the blog for the Centre for Religion and Public Life at the University of Leeds about the Buddhist monks that have been blessing Leicester FC’s ground and players – you can see the blog post here.  Apparently, the Thai owner and Chairman of the Club has asked the monks to bless the pitch and he has also built them a separate room for match days, where they are able to meditate, presumably to generate some positive energy for the club and players.  This has got me thinking – should we be including Leicester City’s King Power Stadium in our mapping of Buddhist buildings in England? What do you think?
