Leicester City Football Club is an English professional football club based in Leicester. The club competes in the Premier League, England's top division of football, and plays its home games at the King Power Stadium.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. A number of newspapers described their title win as the greatest sporting shock ever, considering at the start of the season they were favourites to face relegation. Multiple bookmakers had never paid out at such long odds for any sport. As a result, the team was dubbed "The Unbelievables", a spin-off hearkening back to Arsenal's undefeated team "The Invincibles". 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. They hold a joint-highest seven second-tier titles (six Second Division and one Championship).
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.
Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club ( listen), commonly referred to as Wolves, is an English professional football club based in the city of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Originally known as St Luke's F.C., the club was formed in 1877 and has played at its home ground, Molineux Stadium, since 1889. It currently competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football, as a result of winning the EFL Championship in the 2017–18 season.
Wolves were one of the founding members of the Football League in 1888 and, apart from six seasons, have always played in one of the top two tiers of English football. The club spent 33 years in the top flight from 1932 to 1965, their longest continuous period at that level. During this period, they were champions of England three times, all in the 1950s whilst under the management of Stan Cullis. They have also finished runners-up in the league on five occasions (most recently in 1959–60) and in third place on a further six occasions (most recently in 1960–61).
Wolves have won the FA Cup four times, most recently in 1960, and have finished runners-up on a further four occasions. They have also won the Football League Cup twice, in 1974 and 1980.
In the 1950s, Wolves were one of the first clubs to install floodlights and, by taking part in televised "floodlit friendlies" against leading overseas teams, played an instrumental role in the creation of the European Cup. In European competition, the team reached the quarter-final stage of the 1959–60 European Cup and the semi-final stage of the 1960–61 European Cup Winners' Cup, and were runners-up to Tottenham Hotspur in the inaugural UEFA Cup Final in 1972.
The club originally used the St Luke's school colours of red and white. These were soon superseded by Wolves' traditional gold shirts and black shorts. The original club badge was the Wolverhampton city coat of arms; since the 1960s, the club has used badges depicting one or more wolves. Wolves have long-standing rivalries with other West Midlands clubs; the main one is with West Bromwich Albion, against whom they contest the Black Country derby.
