Leicester City Football Club, commonly known as Leicester City, or simply as Leicester, is a professional soccer club based in Leicester, England. The club was founded in 1884, and has competed in the English football league system since its formation. They are currently playing in the Premier League, which is the top tier of English football.
In the 2015-2016 season, Leicester City achieved one of the greatest sports story in history, by winning the Premier League. This was the first top-flight league title in the club’s 132-year history and it was unexpected as they were 5000-1 outsiders before the start of the campaign. They were able to achieve this success under the management of Claudio Ranieri, led by their star player, Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez who were the engine of that team. This campaign will be remembered as a fairy tale story and one of the greatest ever in football history.
The team plays its home matches at the King Power Stadium, which has a capacity of just over 32,000. The club has a passionate fan base, and the team’s main rival is traditionally considered to be Derby County. Despite the success of that season, they have been consistently challenging for the European places and showing that they are no longer a one-hit wonder. The club is known for its strong team spirit and work ethic, which have helped them to achieve success over the years.
