The club was founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse F.C., 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 City won the 2015-16 Premier League, their first top-level football championship. They are one of only six clubs to have won the Premier League since its inception in 1992. The club's previous highest ever finish was second place in the top flight, in 1928-29, then known as Division One. Throughout Leicester's history, they have spent all but one season within the top two leagues of English football.
The club have been FA Cup finalists four times, in 1948-49, 1960-61, 1962-63 and 1968-69. This is a tournament record for the most defeats in the final without having won the competition. Leicester have several promotions to their name, two play-off final wins, and one League One title. In 1971, they won the FA Community Shield, and in 2016, they were runners up. The club have also won the League Cup three times in 1964, 1997 and 2000, as well as being runners up in 1965 and 1999. Additionally, Leicester City have competed in European football, with their appearances coming in the 1961-62 European Cup Winners' Cup, 1997-98 UEFA Cup, 2000-01 UEFA Cup, and most recently the 2016-17 UEFA Champions League, reaching the quarter-finals of the competition in that year.
