2015–16 Leicester City F.C. season

The 2015–16 season was Leicester City's 111th season in the English football league system and their 48th (non-consecutive) season in the top tier of English football.[1] During the season, Leicester participated in the Premier League for the second consecutive season, as well as the FA Cup and League Cup. In what was described as one of the greatest sporting stories of all time,[2] Leicester were confirmed as champions of the 2015–16 Premier League season on 2 May 2016, finishing top of England's highest league for the first time in the club's history. The club was 5000-1 with bookmakers to win the division before the season kicked off.[3] The feat meant that Leicester would be playing in the UEFA Champions League the following season, a first for the club in their history. The season also saw history be made for individual players within the team, as striker Jamie Vardy broke the record for goals scored in consecutive games in the Premier League (11) [4] and Winger Riyad Mahrez became the first African and first Algerian player to be the recipient of the PFA Players' Player of the Year.[5]
