Joining the Foxes
After impressing in the Sky Bet Championship with Leeds United, Kasper Schmeichel joined Leicester City in the summer of 2011.
A maiden outing on Filbert Way
Kasper would make his King Power Stadium debut in a showpiece friendly against Spanish giants Read Madrid. Karim Benzema's strike ultimately settled it, despite Lloyd Dyer's late strike for the hosts.
Off to a winning start
Leicester got off to the perfect start in 2011/12 as Sven-Göran Eriksson's Foxes defeated Coventry City at Ricoh Arena on the opening day. Schmeichel would go on to keep 17 clean sheets for City over a campaign which included Nigel Pearson's return to the Club as manager.
A brace of awards
After a landmark debut season at King Power Stadium, the Dane took home both the Player and Players' Player of the Season prizes at the end of the campaign as City finished ninth in the Sky Bet Championship.
With Leicester one goal to the good against Middlesbrough in January 2013, a late penalty is conceded. City had hit the woodwork four times in the game, but could have lost their lead right at the very end... until Schmeichel stepped up to make an incredible spot-kick save to deny Marvin Emnes.
A century of appearances
In April 2013, Schmeichel made his 100th appearance for the Club as the Foxes defeated Bolton Wanderers 3-2 at King Power Stadium. Despite maintaining a challenge for much of the season, the Foxes would miss out on promotion, losing to Watford in the play-off semi-finals.
On the international stage
Kasper's form for Leicester would lead to his maiden cap at senior level for Denmark against Macedonia at the Philip II Arena on 6 February, 2013. He now has 69 caps to his name.
The Championship Team of the Year
Another sterling campaign, in 2012/13, earns Schmeichel a place in the PFA Championship Team of the Year - the first of two occasions he'd secure a place in the division's side of the season.
A decisive stop in familiar surroundings
Kasper's excellent point-blank save to frustrate Ross McCormack would ultimately help Pearson's side pick up a 1-0 win at former club Leeds in January 2014 as Leicester opened up a five-point gap at the second-tier summit.
Nine clean sheets over a 19-game unbeaten run, spanning from December to April, pushed Leicester towards promotion in 2013/14 as the Foxes looked to make amends for narrowly missing out a season earlier.
A first-ever goal... almost!
The Foxes were magnificent throughout 2013/14 en route to promotion as Sky Bet Championship champions. However, they needed a last-minute equaliser against Yeovil Town in March, which was seemingly scored by Schmeichel himself. It would later be awarded to Chris Wood, though...
Promotion as champions!
City headed to Bolton knowing promotion back to the Premier League had already been secured but a 1-0 win in the North West, courtesy of Lloyd Dyer's strike and another Schmeichel shutout, ensured they would end the season as champions.
Back in the Premier League
Another 1-0 triumph, over Doncaster Rovers on the final day, gives City all three points at King Power Stadium as Schmeichel and his team-mates lift the Sky Bet Championship trophy in front of the Blue Army.
Another personal prize
While Kasper may have been set to leave the second tier and compete in the Premier League, he nonetheless picked up another PFA Championship Team of the Year prize at the conclusion of 2013/14.
A shot at the big time
Kasper starts Leicester's first Premier League fixture in a decade as the Foxes draw 2-2 with Everton at King Power Stadium. Although injury would limit his appearances over the winter months, Schmeichel would be a valuable figure for the Club in 2014/15.
Consecutive clean sheets
A trio of successive shutouts help City earn seven points in three games at just the right time, at the end of the season, culminating in a trip to Sunderland...
City are in a perilous position as April approaches, sitting bottom of the Premier League. Seven wins from their last nine games, though, sees them climb the standings and a 0-0 draw at Sunderland on 16 May, 2015 is enough to confirm their top-flight status for another year.
The second tier Team of the Decade
Celebrating 10 years of the Championship, Schmeichel and team-mate Wes Morgan were named in the division's Team of the Decade in 2015, marking also their exploits for Leeds United and Nottingham Forest respectively.
A new season on Filbert Way
The 2015/16 campaign begins with a new man at the helm, Italian manager Claudio Ranieri, as the Foxes start in the same manner they ended the previous season. A series of impressive victories propel Leicester towards the upper regions of the Premier League table.
A clean sheet pizza!
As promised, after City's maiden clean sheet of the league season, against Crystal Palace, Claudio Ranieri takes his squad to a local pizzeria, where the squad make their own pizzas to toast the achievement. By the time Leicester faced Palace again, in March, Schmeichel had kept 12 clean sheets.
Champions League football secured
Unbelievably, Leicester City qualified for European football's platinum club competition with a 2-0 triumph over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with their No.1 yet again in imperious form with his fifth clean sheet in a row.
On the edge of glory
Quite extraordinarily and despite pre-season odds of 5,000/1, Leicester were one game away from lifting the Premier League title when Ranieri's men visited Old Trafford on 1 May, 2016. A 1-1 draw would make them wait, but it wouldn't be long until the unthinkable became a reality.
The crowning moment
Title rivals Tottenham Hotspur would go on to be held by Chelsea a day later and, on 7 May, 2016, after a week of jubilant celebrations, Schmeichel and his team-mates would get their hands on the Premier League trophy, concluding a magical second season in the top-flight.
Toasting the success
With accomplice Christian Fuchs, Kasper gate-crashes Ranieri's post-match press conference with the Premier League trophy. In the Dane's defence, it was Fuchs who brought the champagne...
Leicester celebrates in style
Alongside his heroic team-mates, Kasper is on board the open-top coach as the Premier League trophy is paraded through the city of Leicester. It would be just the latest celebration of a delirious summer for the Blue Army.
The trophy goes on tour!
Over the summer, the Club compete in the International Champions Cup, facing Celtic, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona across the continent. On a flight to Los Angeles, to tackle PSG, Kasper would meet up with England legend David Beckham as the tour continued.
Starting out at Wembley
The 2016/17 campaign began for Schmeichel with the FA Community Shield at Wembley. Although Jamie Vardy found the net for the Foxes, a Zlatan Ibrahimović effort would secure success for José Mourinho's FA Cup holders Manchester United at the national stadium.
A triumphant start in Europe
The Club's debut in the UEFA Champions League was also Schmeichel's first appearance in the competition as Leicester secured a brilliant 3-0 victory over Club Brugge in Belgium on 14 September, 2016.
Returning to his hometown
After three consecutive European wins, Schmeichel was once again in goal for City as they headed to the city where he was born - Copenhagen - on matchday four in Group G. Another clean sheet would follow in a 0-0 draw, but an injury would keep him out for several weeks to follow.
A decisive spot-kick stop in Seville
While Leicester lost 2-1 in Spain, Vardy's late strike and Schmeichel's penalty save to deny Joaquin Correa from 12 yards would prove crucial to the Foxes in the first leg of the Club's first-ever Champions League knockout tie in February 2017.
At it again back in Leicester!
One of the greatest nights ever to be staged at King Power Stadium was to follow for Leicester as Schmeichel once again produced an outstanding penalty save, from Steven N'Zonzi, as the Foxes overturned their aggregate deficit to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Domestic form improves
Successive clean sheets help the Foxes go on a five-game winning run - against Liverpool, Hull City, West Ham United, Stoke City and Sunderland - to see them climb up the standings in the Premier League after a frustrating run.
Heartache in the last-eight
Leicester would valiantly miss out on a semi-final appearance against Real Madrid as a 2-1 aggregate loss to Atlético Madrid brought an end to their intrepid European adventure in April 2017. Schmeichel conceded just four goals in the Champions League in 2016/17.
Another seasonal award
Schmeichel was named as the Club's Player of the Season for the second time at the end of the 2016/17 campaign, which ended with Craig Shakespeare in charge.
Ever-reliable in goal
Thirty-three Premier League appearances would be added to Kasper's tally in 2017/18 as the Foxes reached the quarter-finals of both the FA Cup and the League Cup. After Claude Puel's appointment in October, meanwhile, City would win four league games in a row.
The penalty hero again
A superb stop to deny Glenn Murray from 12 yards in March helps Leicester on their way to victory at Brighton & Hove Albion - even more impressive considering Wilfred Ndidi's second-half red card at AMEX Stadium.
Impressing at the World Cup
Schmeichel was Denmark's No.1 in Russia and, after safe passage from the group stage, he saved three penalties but the Danes exited the competition following a 3-2 shootout defeat to eventual finalists Croatia on Sunday 1 July, 2018.
Committing his future to the Foxes
A new deal is Kasper's reward for his impeccable service as Leicester head into the 2018/19 season. Afterwards, he said: "I’m very happy to be here for many more years. I’ve spent the majority of my career at Leicester now and had some amazing times here, so hopefully we’ll have some more."
An emotional tribute
A week following the tragic passing of the Club's beloved Chairman Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, Schmeichel keeps a clean sheet as Demarai Gray's goal secures an emotional 1-0 victory at Cardiff City on 3 November, 2018.
A new era
Following Brendan Rodgers' arrival in February 2019, Schmeichel's role is changed slightly to involve the Dane playing a more prominent role in a possession-based brand of football. The Foxes quickly climb the table as Kasper stars in all 38 league games in 2018/19.
History on the South Coast
The Club's then-biggest-ever Premier League win, a 5-0 success over Newcastle United, is followed swiftly by the joint-largest away win the competition as the Foxes beat Southampton 9-0 at St. Mary's Stadium in October 2019 - both including Schmeichel clean sheets.
A Club-record run
Schmeichel, now often wearing the captain's armband, is an ever-present through the 2019/20 campaign too and stars in every game as Leicester go on a Club-record eight-game winning run in the top flight for the first time in their history.
European football returns
Professional football is suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but returns over the summer to conclude the season. Without fans in attendance, for safety reasons, the Foxes secure fifth place and qualification for the UEFA Europa League.
More landmark victories
A 5-2 win at Manchester City is followed by City's first success at Arsenal since 1973, with Kasper keeping another clean sheet. Shutouts also come to define wins over the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea as Leicester enjoy several triumphs over the league's biggest sides in 2020/21.
European records secured
Schmeichel kept Braga out on Filbert Way in November as Leicester registered a 4-0 success over the Portuguese outfit to secure the Club's biggest European victory. The Foxes would eventually win Group G and reach the Round of 32 stage in the tournament.
A notable individual landmark
Kasper was presented with a Silver Fox in January 2021 after making his 400th appearance for the Club. Only five players in Leicester City's history have featured for the Foxes more than Schmeichel.
Major silverware... once more!
A brilliant performance from Schmeichel and his team-mates leads to a 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the final of the Emirates FA Cup in May 2021. After Youri Tielemans' superb opener, City's No.1 makes two breathtaking saves to help Rodgers' men get over the line at Wembley.
It was a success which means, as well as representing the Club twice in Europe, Schmeichel has now won the Premier League, the Championship and the FA Cup over his 10 years as a Fox.
Another ever-present campaign
Schmeichel has now gone three seasons without missing a single Premier League fixture for Leicester. The last time the Danish Footballer of the Year missed a top-flight match for the Foxes was a 5-4 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on 13 May, 2018 - over 1,000 days ago.
EURO hopes & dreams
So far this summer, meanwhile, Leicester's popular shot-stopper is once again impressing for Denmark, helping his nation reach the quarter-finals of UEFA EURO 2020, where they will face Czech Republic later this week.
