Leicester City F.C. History

Leicester City F.C was founded in 1884, under the name of Leicester Fosse. Leicester moved to five different grounds before finally settling on Filbert Street in 1891, a stadium which would make their home for the next 111 years. 

Leicester became a member of the Football league in 1894 and after a couple of poor seasons, they won promotion to the First Division in 1908. Their first season in the top flight proved to be a bit of a disaster. In addition to being relegated immediately, this season would leave a bad taste in the fans' mouth due to a 12-0 thrashing at the hands of Nottingham Forest, which remains the club's biggest defeat of all time.

Owing  to a financial scandal, the club was reformed as Leicester City in 1919. Led by Arthur Chandler, the club's top goalscorer of all time (with 273 goals in 393 appearances), Leicester returned to the First Division in 1925 and finished as runners-up to Sheffield Wednesday by a single point in 1929.

The club would not hit the headlines again until Matt Gillies was  appointment as coach in 1958. Gillies eye for talent was fundamental in forming a team that would go on to reach two FA Cup finals (1961, 1963) and a fourth place finish in the First Division (1963). They would only have to wait one more year to claim their first trophy: the 1964 League Cup. After Gillies resignation in 1968  Leicester lasted only a single year in the top flight and were relegated to the Second Division.

Leicester City won two more League Cups in 1997 and 2000. After spending a lot of money on some historically bad transfer signings, Leicester quickly found themselves in the Championship again, where they remained until 2008 until they were relegated to League One. This would prove to be their only season in the competition, however; under the new coach, Nigel Pearson, Leicester returned to the Championship the very next year.

In 2016 Leicester surprised  a whole football world by a remarkable performance in the Premier League. Under the managment of Claudio Ranieri, the team hit the big time and won the English Premier League title for the first time.
