We discuss some of Leicester City Football Club’s history in this video. We begin with the club’s location, home ground, and founding story. We then discuss the club’s nickname (the Foxes), crest, and important events. And we close with discussing noteworthy players, managers, and stats/records.

The video is not all-encompassing but it hopefully provides some interesting information about Leicester City FC.

Hope you like it and you can find more videos like this on The Soccer Tavern YouTube Channel.
