Leicester City

Leicester City Football Club is an English professional football club based in Leicester in the East Midlands. The club competes in the Premier League, the top division of England's football league system, and plays its home matches at the King Power Stadium. 

The club was founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse F.C., playing on a field near Fosse Road. They moved to Filbert Street in 1891, were elected to the Football League in 1894, and adopted the name Leicester City in 1919. They moved to the nearby Walkers Stadium in 2002, which was renamed the King Power Stadium in 2011. 

Head Coach: Brendan Rodgers

Club Captain: Wes Morgan

Club Ground: King Power Stadium


Leicester won the 2015–16 Premier League, their first top-level football championship. They are one of only seven clubs to have won the Premier League since its inception in 1992. A number of newspapers described Leicester's title win as the greatest sporting shock ever; multiple bookmakers had never paid out at such long odds for any sport. As a result, the team was dubbed "The Unbelievables", a spin-off harking back to Arsenal's undefeated team "The Invincibles". The club's previous highest finish was second place in the top flight, in 1928–29, then known as the First Division. 


Throughout their history, Leicester has spent all but one season in the top two divisions of English football. They hold a joint-highest seven second-tier titles (six Second Division and one Championship). The club has been FA Cup finalists four times, won the League Cup three times, and competed in four European campaigns.
