Leicester City Football Club (nicknamed The Foxes, The Blues, City, and Blue Army), are a professional football club based in Leicester. Leicester City was founded in 1884 by a group of old boys of Wyggeston School as "Leicester Fosse", the club joined The Football Association (FA) in 1890. The club also joined the Midland League in 1891, and were elected to Division Two of the Football League in 1894 after finishing second. Leicester's first ever Football League game was a 4–3 defeat at Grimsby Town, with a first League win the following week, against Rotherham United at Filbert Street. 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. In 1907–08 the club finished as Second Division runners-up, gaining promotion to the First Division, the highest level of English football.
Leicester City have enjoyed moderate success through the years: holding a joint record 7 second tier titles, winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times – prior to the odds-defying Premier League title win in 2015–16, their first top tier title, becoming one of seven clubs to have won the Premier League since its inception in 1992. Most Leicester fans consider Coventry City to be their main rivals, and the game between the two clubs has become known as the M69 derby. Leicester also have rivalries with Nottingham Forest and Derby County, and an East Midlands derby is any match involving two of these three clubs. They have been playing their home games at The King Power Stadium (originally named Filbert Way) since 2002.
