Leicester City Football Club /ˌlɛstər ˈsɪti/, also known as the Foxes, is an English professional football club based at the King Power Stadium in Leicester. They play in the Premier League, having been promoted as champions of the Football League Championship in 2013–14, signalling a return to the top flight of English football after a decade away.
The club was founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse FC, playing on a field near Fosse Road. They moved to Filbert Street in 1891, were elected to the Football League in 1894 and adopted the name Leicester City in 1919. They moved to the nearby Walkers Stadium in 2002, which was renamed the King Power Stadium after a change of ownership in 2011.
Leicester won the 2015–16 Premier League, their first top-level football championship. By some measures it was the greatest sporting upset ever: multiple bookmakers had never paid out at such long odds for any sport. Prior to this, their highest ever finish was second place in the top flight, in Division One in 1928–29. The club holds a joint-highest seven second-tier titles (six Second Division and one Championship), as well as one League One title. They have also won the League Cup three times and have been FA Cup runners-up four times, a tournament record for the most defeats in the final without having won the competition.
