Leicester City Football Club is an English professional football club based at the King Power Stadium in Leicester.

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 after a change of ownership in 2011.

Leicester City won the 2015–16 Premier League, their first top-level football championship. They are one of only six clubs to have won the Premier League since its inception in 1992. A number of newspapers described their title win as the greatest sporting upset ever, considering at the start of the season they were favourites to face relegation. 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 hearkening back to Arsenal's undefeated team "The Invincibles". The club's previous highest ever finish was second place in the top flight, in 1928–29, then known as Division One. Throughout Leicester's history, they have spent all but one season within the top two leagues of English football. They hold a joint-highest seven-second-tier titles (six Second Division and one Championship).

The club have been FA Cup finalists four times, in 1948–49, 1960–61, 1962–63 and 1968–69. This is a tournament record for the most defeats in the final without having won the competition. Leicester have several promotions to their name, two play-off final wins, and one League One title. In 1971, they won the FA Community Shield, and in 2016, they were runners-up. The club have also won the League Cup three times in 1964, 1997 and 2000, as well as being runners-up in 1965 and 1999. Additionally, Leicester City have competed in European football, with their appearances coming in the 1961–62 European Cup Winners' Cup, 1997–98 UEFA Cup, 2000–01 UEFA Cup, and most recently the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League, reaching the quarter-finals of the competition in that year.

Just the best memories

I was so proud of City that night

Made us proud. Very good game, thanks ❤️

City did themselves proud! QF was such a great achievement!

Lets get back there 🙈

Tindi Rindi

so proud!

Such a good campaign that was and to go out fighting in the quarters against one of the best teams in Europe when everyone said we wouldn’t make it out of the group. Now that’s the foxes we all love

But jeez we were good

Whatta journey the UCL was that season ☇🔥😍 amazing nights at the KP!

Cause Reniere wasn’t supported full heatedly in this season campaign but Snakespeare was. You laid on your own bed.

Battered them that night. Another night, could have been a different story. Was proud to be there to witness that performance. One of my favourite nights at the KP, despite the outcome.

We will be there again one day

have been wearing my European tour t shirt today

Good times. Shame it went downhill afterwards.

We lived the dream 🦊

Kasper saved 3 penalties in the playoffs 😊

Even though we lost I'd never felt more proud to be a city fan that night.

I was there .....

Heady days which a lot of other teams and supporters have forgotten about but we haven't.

We need this experience again 🙏⚽ Undeserved exit😢

Comes off bench, after injury and puts in 3 decent crosses in 10 minutes. Always 💯 % Albrighton.
