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.

Happy birthday t u 🎂🎂🎂

Happy birthday! Once a Fox always a Fox 🦊 You will always be loved for that goal 😍

Happy birthday to you x🦊💙🌹

Happy birthday have lovely birthday

He is the best magician we have had - beautiful player.

สวยพี่สวย

Happy birthday,great goal.

Great fella, saw him in Highcross plenty of times. Always wondered what it was about our beloved City Centre he liked so much, I mean this is a guy who lived in Milan and Madrid!

Glad I got to watch this legend when he came to us that season. He was one of my favourite players, i watched him when he was at Madrid to inter to us. Happy birthday big man 🎂🎂🎂🍾

Grande cuchu!

Great 😛😛

One of my favourite city goals of all time. Cut my leg open celebrating it .

without doubt my favourite game since Claridge shinned it!! Great memories

Classy player...he knew where every player was in front of him facing his own goal was a great year watching him play the game.

Probably one of my favourite ever goals. Goosebumps

Hbd Champ

The most overrated player ever to play for City. For the majority of his one season at the club he (like the rest of the players) was poor to average at best. That bore out by us being bottom of the league for three months. He deserves credit (as they all do) for the great escape. But terms like ‘legend’ and ‘magician’ in reference to his time with us are completely unmerited.

Quite possibly the best player to play for us what a player he was

What a great game - one of the best ever - will never forget

Quang Thanh Tran một thời gánh lei

GRANDEEE CUCHUUU !!! 🇦🇷

UP THE FOXES!!!

Wish he had stopped one more season
