Congratulations to Leicester City on the club’s promotion to the Premier League.
The Foxes have returned to the top flight of English soccer for the first time in a decade since getting relegated in 2004. Leicester defeated Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 on Friday night, but had to wait until Saturday to see if their points total was enough to automatically clinch promotion to the Premier League. After Leicester’s win on Friday night, they had to hope that QPR would lose against Bournemouth and Derby County would fail to beat Middlesbrough in order to get promoted. As it was, Middlesbrough beat Derby 1-0, while Bournemouth defeated QPR 2-1.
Some of the familiar names who are Leicester City supporters include Gary Lineker and Arlo White.
The club holds six Second Division titles and one League One title. They have won the League Cup three times, and have been FA Cup runners-up four times, a tournament record for the most defeats in the final without having won the competition.
