About

Leicester City Football Club

Leicester City Football Club, also known as the Foxes, is a professional football team based in the city.

Founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse, the club played in their historic home Filbert Street for 111 years before moving to the King Power Stadium in 2002. The club has a proud history and their dressing rooms have been graced by some of football's true greats including Gordon Banks, Peter Shilton, Keith Weller, Frank Worthington, Emile Heskey, Muzzy Izzet and Esteban Cambiasso.

The stand-out moment in the club's long history is the Premier League win in the 2015-2016 season – one of the greatest sporting fairytales of all time. Defying odds of 5,000/1, Leicester City made headlines all over the world as the underdogs who became only the sixth club to get their name on the Premier League trophy. 

Before that crowning moment, the club had spent all but one season in the top two tiers of English football, winning three League Cups along the way. 

There are plenty of ways to follow and support the Foxes – go to a match, take a tour of King Power Stadium or meet Filbert Fox at events across the city!
