About this deal

Their 2–1 home win over Sheffield Wednesday, combined with losses by Queens Park Rangers and Derby County, allowed Leicester City to clinch promotion to the Premier League after a ten-year absence.

The scale of the surprise title victory attracted global attention for the club and the city of Leicester. Leicester won the Premier League on 2 May 2016 after Tottenham lost a 2–0 lead against Chelsea, drawing 2–2 at the "Battle of Stamford Bridge".However, following a poor start to the season he was sacked in October 2017 after four months officially in charge, with Leicester in 18th place in the table.

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. Throughout their history, Leicester have spent all but one season in the top two divisions of English football. They moved to Filbert Street in 1891, were elected to the Football League in 1894 and moved to the nearby King Power Stadium in 2002. Despite being in the top four for most of the season, Leicester suffered a drop-off in form at the end of the season, winning only two of their nine games following the resumption of league play due to the coronavirus pandemic. Following promotion, Leicester established themselves in the Premier League with four successive top ten finishes.They finished the season with a 5–1 thrashing of relegated Queens Park Rangers, and Leicester's upturn in results was described as one of the Premier League's greatest-ever escapes from relegation.
