Their nickname is The Foxes. The club colours are royal blue and white. They play their home games at the King Power Stadium, which is also known as Filbert Way or Leicester City Stadium. It was also formerly known as Walkers Stadium. Its capacity is 32,312 spectators.
Some fans consider Nottingham Forest to be the main rivals, while other rivals include Derby County. Matches against these clubs are known as East Midlands derbies. In addition, there is a rivalry with a club almost 40 miles away, which is Coventry City. The home towns of both clubs are connected by the M69 motorway, hence these matches are also known as the M69 derby.
The club was founded in 1884, then as Leicester Fosse FC. The home town is of course Leicester in the county of Leicestershire. Originally the club played at the Fosse Road ground. Their home stadium was Filbert Street for a long time, specifically between 1891 and 2002, only subsequently becoming the current King Power Stadium. The club has been known by its current name, Leicester FC, since 1919.
The club has currently been operating in the Premier League since the 2014/15 season. Prior to that, it operated here in the 2003/04 season. After breaking into the top flight once again, the club's first success also came in the following season, which was the league title in 2015/16. The club was then led by Italian coach Claudio Ranieri. It is their only title to date. In addition to that, they have also reached the final of the highest league competition in the distant history in the 1928/29 season.
The fact that Leicester were considered a relegation candidate in the year they won the title may seem a bit amusing. The odds on them winning the league at the time were 5000 to 1, so it made for a first class sensation. Interestingly, between 2010 and 2018, the club was backed by a Thai billionaire. This was Vichai Srivadtanaprapcha, who tragically died in a helicopter crash outside Leicester's stadium. He was flying in to watch a match there at the time.
