Leicester City, also known as The Foxes, were founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse, playing on a field near Fosse Road. They moved to Filbert Street in 1891 and played there for 111 years, before relocating to the nearby Walkers Stadium in 2002. It has now been renamed the King Power Stadium.
Leicester were elected to the Football League in 1894. The club's highest ever finish was second place in the top flight, in Division One in 1928-29.
They have won the League Cup three times, and have been FA Cup runners-up four times, which is an FA cup record for the most defeats in the final without having won the competition.
Graham Cross holds the record for the most Leicester appearances, with the defender playing 599 games between 1960 and 1976. Adam Black holds the record for the most appearances in the league with 528 between 1920 and 1935.
The club's record attendance is 47,298 against Tottenham Hotspur at Filbert Street, in a fifth round FA Cup clash in 1928. The highest league record at their current home, the King Power Stadium, is 32,148 for a competitive match against Newcastle United on December 26, 2003.
In 2016, Leicester pulled off one of the greatest shocks in sporting history. In the same season that the team were favourites to be relegated, Leicester went on to win the Premier League!
