The Leicester City Football Club has been around for a long time and is housed in Leicester, England. This is a club that is an active participant in the Premier League and plays in the top division.
Most of the team at our alloy wheel refurbishment workshop are avid life-long supporters of the club. The club was initially founded in the late-1800s and was set up along Fossae Road. This was before the club eventually grew in statute and moved its operations to another ground on Filbert Street a few years later. This is a club that has become a part of English history due to its stature in the East Midlands.
Its biggest achievement continues to be the EPL title that it won out of nowhere during 2015-16. This was a title no one thought they had a chance to win but then the miracle ran began and it swept the country by storm.
It was a tremendous shock and one that will go down in football history forever. A club that had never finished higher than second (back in 1928) had suddenly turned things up a few notches and won the league. It is a storey that will be remembered for a long time to come.
The team has been moved around from place to place due to ownership change and it is recently housed in King Power Stadium. This is a large stadium that has been set up with state-of-the-art facilities making it one of the finer grounds in the nation.
The club has been around for a long time and it started as Leicester Fossae by the old boys of Wyggeston School. At the time, they had joined up with the Football Association as an active participant. Over time, they continued to move around the region and spent time in places such as Victoria Park and Belgrave Road Cycle.
Over time, the club also spent time as a participant in the Midland League, which eventually joined up with Division 2 of the Football League.
The club did well as it continue to grow in stature including getting all the way to the first division in the early-1900s.
It was after the first world war when things started turning bad for the club because they had to deal with the financial repercussions of the war itself on the economy. The club couldn’t keep up and that is when it turned into Leicester City Football Club.
The team continued to play well and it eventually put up a good team that ended up doing well in Division Two Football. This included winning the title in 1924/25 while also finishing with the second-highest points for the league title at the time.
When it comes to football clubs, this is one that is dripping with history and is synonymous with everything English football stands for. In recent years, it has truly grown in stature and is now right up there with the best footballing clubs on the planet.
They attract unique talent and they are also continually building new facilities to stay up to par with modern footballing standards.
