They are one of only seven clubs to have won the Premier League since its inception in A number of newspapers described Leicester's title win as the greatest sporting shock ever; multiple bookmakers had never paid out at such long odds for any sport.
The same season also saw the club's largest win to date, a 13—0 victory over Notts Olympic in an FA Cup qualifying game.
However, the club were relegated after a single season which included the club's record defeat, a 12—0 loss against Nottingham Forest. In , when League football resumed after World War I , Leicester Fosse ceased trading due to financial difficulties of which little is known.
The club was reformed as "Leicester City Football Club", particularly appropriate as the borough of Leicester had recently been given city status.
Following the name change, the club enjoyed moderate success in the s; under the management of Peter Hodge , who left in May to be replaced two months later by Willie Orr , and with record goalscorer Arthur Chandler in the side,  they won the Division Two title in —25  and recorded their second-highest league finish in —29 as runners-up by a single point to The Wednesday.
City reached the FA Cup final for the first time in their history in ,   losing 3—1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The club, however, was celebrating a week later when a draw on the last day of the season ensured survival in Division Two.
Although they were relegated from Division One the next season, under Dave Halliday they returned in ,  with Rowley scoring a club record 44 goals in one season.
Under the management of Matt Gillies and his assistant Bert Johnson , Leicester reached the FA Cup final on another two occasions, but lost in both and In the —63 season , the club led the First Division during the winter, thanks to a sensational run of form on icy and frozen pitches the club became nicknamed the "Ice Kings" eventually placed fourth, the club's best post-war finish.
Gillies guided Leicester to their first piece of silverware in , when Leicester beat Stoke City 4—3 on aggregate to win the League Cup for the first time.
Gillies and Johnson received praise for their version of the "whirl" and the "switch" system, a system that had previously been used by the Austrian and Hungarian national teams.
His successor, Frank O'Farrell was unable to prevent relegation, but the club reached the FA Cup final in for the last time to date, losing to Manchester City 1—0.
No period since Bloomfield has seen the club remain in the top division for so long. Leicester reached the FA Cup semi-final in — Frank McLintock , a noted player for seven years for Leicester in a successful period from the late Fifties to the mid Sixties, succeeded Jimmy Bloomfield in City were relegated at the end of the —78 season and McLintock resigned.
Under Wallace, one of City's most famous home-grown players, Gary Lineker , emerged into the first team squad. Leicester's next manager was Gordon Milne, who achieved promotion in Lineker helped Leicester maintain their place in the First Division but was sold to Everton in and two years later Leicester were relegated, having failed to find a suitable replacement to partner Alan Smith , who was sold to Arsenal after Leicester went down.
Milne left in and was replaced in by David Pleat , who was sacked in January with Leicester in danger of relegation to the Third Division.
Gordon Lee was put in charge of the club until the end of the season. Leicester won their final game of the season, which guided them clear of relegation to the third tier of the football league.
Brian Little took over in and by the end of the —92 season Leicester had reached the playoff final for a place in the new FA Premier League , but lost to Blackburn Rovers and a penalty from former Leicester striker Mike Newell.
The club also reached the playoff final the following year, losing 4—3 to Swindon Town , having come back from 3—0 down. In —94 City were promoted from the playoffs, beating Derby County 2—1 in the final.
McGhee left the club unexpectedly in December while Leicester were top of the First Division to take charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Following promotion, Leicester established themselves in the Premier League with four successive top ten finishes. O'Neill ended Leicester's year wait for a major trophy, winning the League Cup twice, in and , and Leicester were runners-up in O'Neill was replaced by former England under coach Peter Taylor.
Taylor was sacked after a poor start to the —02 season , and his successor Dave Bassett lasted just six months before being succeeded by his assistant Micky Adams , the change of management being announced just before relegation was confirmed.
Leicester won just five league matches all season. Leicester moved into the new 32,seat Walkers Stadium at the start of the —03 season , ending years at Filbert Street.
Walkers , the Leicestershire-based crisp manufacturers, acquired the naming rights for a ten-year period. However, Leicester lasted only one season in the top flight and were relegated to the newly labelled Championship , previously known as Division One.
When Adams resigned as manager in October , Craig Levein was appointed boss. This would prove to be an unsuccessful period and after 15 months in charge, Levein was sacked, having failed to get the Foxes anywhere near the promotion places.
Assistant manager Rob Kelly took over as caretaker manager , and after winning three out of four matches, was appointed to see out the rest of the season.
Kelly steered Leicester to safety and in April was given the manager's job on a permanent basis. The takeover was formally announced on 13 February Worthington saved the club from relegation, but was not offered the job on a permanent basis.
On 25 May , the club announced former Milton Keynes Dons manager Martin Allen as their new manager with a three-year contract.
However, Megson left on 24 October after only six weeks in charge, following an approach made for his services by Bolton Wanderers.
On 22 November, Ian Holloway was appointed manager, and he became the first Leicester manager in over 50 years to win his first league match in charge, beating Bristol City 2—0.
Holloway left by mutual consent after less than a season at the club, being replaced by Nigel Pearson.
The —09 campaign was Leicester's first season outside the top two levels of English football , but they hit this nadir only seven years before becoming the —16 Premier League champions — the fastest seven-year rise to the top of the English football league system apart from Ipswich Town in The —10 season saw Leicester's revival under manager Nigel Pearson continue, as the club finished fifth and reached the Championship play-offs in their first season back in the second tier.
Though coming from 2—0 down on aggregate, away to Cardiff City , to briefly lead 3—2, they eventually lost to a penalty shoot-out in the play-off semi-final.
At the end of the season, Pearson left Leicester to become the manager of Hull City , claiming he felt the club seemed reluctant to keep him, and that Paulo Sousa had been the club's guest at both play-off games, hinting at a possible replacement.
On 7 July , Sousa was confirmed as Pearson's replacement. Leicester were viewed as one of the favourites for promotion in the —12 season, but on 24 October , following an inconsistent start with the Foxes winning just 5 out of their first 13 matches, Eriksson left the club by mutual consent.
Pearson would go on to lead The Foxes to a sixth-place finish in the —13 season, ensuring Leicester were in the Championship play-offs.
However, Leicester lost the playoff semi-final 3—2 on aggregate to Watford after Anthony Knockaert missed a late penalty and Troy Deeney scored right at the end after a swift counterattack from a Manuel Almunia double save.
In , Leicester's march up the league system hit a breakthrough. Later that month, a win at Bolton saw Leicester become the champions of the —14 Championship , the seventh time they had been champions of England's second tier.
Leicester started their first season in the Premier League since with a good run of results in their first five league matches, starting with a 2—2 draw on the opening day against Everton.
They also made Premier League history by becoming the first team to beat Manchester United from a two-goal deficit since the league's launch in During the —15 season , a dismal run of form saw the team slip to the bottom of the league table with only 19 points from 29 matches.
By 3 April , they were seven points adrift from safety. This could have brought a sudden end to Leicester's seven-year rise, but seven wins from their final nine league matches meant the Foxes finished the season in 14th place with 41 points.
They finished the season with a 5—1 thrashing of relegated Queens Park Rangers. Their upturn in results was described as one of the Premier League's greatest ever escapes from relegation.
On 30 June , Pearson was sacked, with the club stating, "The working relationship between Nigel and the Board is no longer viable.
Bookmakers thought Leicester's victory was so unlikely that Ladbrokes and William Hill offered odds of 5,—1 for it at the start of the season.
Leicester became known for their counterattacking style of play, "incredible pace in the areas it is most essential" and defensive solidarity.
If this was a once in every 5,year event, then we've effectively got another 5, years of hope ahead of us. A film has been planned of the story, centred on Jamie Vardy.
Leicester, while performing well in the Champions League, struggled domestically during —17, spending much of the first few months in the bottom half of the table.
Craig Shakespeare took over as caretaker manager, and in his first match in charge, Leicester won 3—1 against fifth-placed Liverpool, with Vardy scoring a brace.
The —17 campaign was also the first season in 15 years that Leicester qualified for European football.
In their inaugural Champions League campaign, they went undefeated in their first five matches to progress to the knockout stages as group winners.
This put an end to Leicester's —17 European campaign, and they finished as Champions League quarter-finalists. Shakespeare, having impressed during his caretaker spell, was appointed full-time on a three-year contract.
By Christmas, Leicester were in 8th position in the Premier League and went on to finish one place lower in 9th at the end of the season. Despite rumours that Puel would leave, he remained at the club for the next season and performed well.
However, the team suffered a poor run of games in which saw Leicester suffer 4 successive home defeats, and following a 4—1 home defeat to Crystal Palace, Puel was sacked on 24 February with the club in 12th place.
On 25 October , Leicester recorded a away win at Southampton in the Premier League , the joint largest win in Premier League history and the largest away win in English top flight history.
Club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha 's helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium, shortly after taking off from the pitch on 27 October , killing Srivaddhanaprabha and all four other people on board.
The club's home colours of royal blue shirts, white shorts, and either white or royal blue socks have been used for the team's kits throughout most of its history.
An image of a fox was first incorporated into the club crest in , as Leicestershire is known for foxes and fox hunting.
The club mascot is a character called "Filbert Fox". There are also secondary characters "Vickie Vixen" and "Cousin Dennis.
In the —10 season , the club's th anniversary year, the home kit featured no sponsor and a new central crest with " Years" written beneath it,  while the away colours were a return to Fosse's initial shirt, albeit with black shorts as opoosed to the original white.
In , the club adopted the playing of the Post Horn Galop prior to home matches. The club since replaced it with a modern version, which is now played as teams emerge for the second half.
For the first half, the post horn has been played live on pitch by Paul Hing since On 8 July , the club launched their new third kit for the —17 Premier League season.
The design took inspiration from the —84 kit, boasting a clean white design with thin blue pinstripes on the shirt and a textured form stripe design across both the shirt and shorts.
Since , Leicester City's kit has been manufactured by German sportswear company Adidas. The deal was valid for the —18 season.
In their early years, Leicester played at numerous grounds, but have only played at two since they joined the Football League.
When first starting out they played on a field by the Fosse Road,  hence the original name Leicester Fosse. They moved from there to Victoria Park , and subsequently to Belgrave Road.
Upon turning professional the club moved to Mill Lane. The club secured the use of an area of ground by Filbert Street , and moved there in Some improvements by noted football architect Archibald Leitch occurred in the Edwardian era, and in a new two tier stand was built,  named the Double Decker, a name it would keep till the ground's closure in The ground wasn't developed any further, apart from compulsory seating being added, till when work began on the new Carling Stand.
The stand was impressive while the rest of the ground was untouched since at least the s; this led manager Martin O'Neill to say he used to "lead new signings out backwards" so they only saw the Carling Stand.
The club moved away from Filbert Street in to a new 32, all-seater stadium. The stadium has been used to host the Heineken Cup European Rugby semi-finals for the Leicester Tigers rugby club, itself based within a mile of the King Power Stadium.
On 19 August , it emerged that the new owners King Power wanted to rename the stadium the King Power Stadium , and had plans to increase the capacity to 42, should Leicester secure promotion.
Most Leicester fans consider Nottingham Forest to be their main rivals, with Derby County as secondary rivals. An East Midlands derby is any match involving two of these three clubs.
The game between the two clubs has become known as the M69 derby , named after the M69 motorway which connects the two cities together.
It was Hodge who instated a system at the club for the manager having complete control over player and staff recruitment, team selection and tactics.
Nigel Pearson and Peter Hodge have both had two separate spells in charge of the club. Dave Bassett also had a second spell as caretaker manager after his spell as permanent manager.

Vardy's goal at Sunderland on 10 April saw him become the first player since Gary Lineker in —85 to score 20 top flight goals for the club, having already become Leicester's highest Premier League scorer in a single season.
