Leicester City Rise to the Top
Leicester City FC was founded in 1884, and has spent the majority of years playing in the second tier of English football bobbing occasionally into the top-flight. They have won the second division on many occasions, but until recently their closest brush with winning the top-flight was a 2nd place finish in 1929.
However, in 2014 Leicester City once again secured promotion into the top-tier Premier League, and in that first season they finished in 14th place. In 2015/16 much to the surprise of football clubs, pundits, fans, and bookmakers City were crowned Premier League champions and joined the elite of English football. Beating the likes of Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man Utd to the trophy is seen as the biggest ‘sporting upset’ ever.
With such a whirlwind of success, and entry into the UEFA Champions League it is clear to see why demand is so high for the shirts. Since 2012 Puma has been the manufacturer of the clubs match day jerseys and training clothes. We are a licensed reseller of Puma merchandise, and are supplied directly by the manufacturers distribution centres ensuring that you are shopping for genuine team Leicester City kit.
Leicester City Kit
The Foxes, as they are often referred to due to the fox on the club crest, have worn a royal blue home shirt for most of the clubs history. The shirt is usually teamed with coordinating socks and white football shorts, creating an iconic look. It is the home shirt that supporters around the globe are now clamouring to buy but Puma has also launched an away kit, and for 2016/17 a third strip for use in their debut Champions League campaign.
Leicester City has played their home games at the King Power Stadium since 2002 (originally named The Walkers Stadium). The current capacity is 32,312, but there are plans in place to increase the capacity to 42,000 allowing more fans sporting their LCFC football shirts to attend home fixtures.
The club is well supported, particularly in the local region. Even before the dizzying heights of Premier League glory, Leicester City often recorded some of the best attendance statistics of any club in English league football both at home and away fixtures.
Becoming only the 6th team to win the prestigious Premier League trophy has thrown LCFC into the midst of a media frenzy, with fans flocking to show their support for the underdog.
