City’s 21st Century Home Kit Collection

After the reveal of the 2022/23 Leicester City home shirt by adidas earlier this week, we recall a handful of Foxes home kits produced over the past few decades.
More on this story...

From all blue kits – such as the one worn when crowned English champions and lifting the Premier League trophy in 2016 – to the more traditional blue shirt and white shorts design worn for many of the Club’s recent successes in Europe and beyond, many evoke fond memories with the Blue Army.

Matt Elliott scored both goals to seal a second League Cup in three years.

Although starting life in the late 1990s, this home shirt from Fox Leisure was worn for the League Cup Final triumph over Tranmere Rovers at Wembley Stadium, just after the turn of the century.

The Foxes were back in the showpiece a year on from heartbreak against Tottenham Hotspur and the trophy was secured in a simple home shirt design.

Its white collar and blue neck trim is not too dissimilar from this season’s #CreateIconic shirt, which takes inspiration from the Leicester home kit worn between 1973 and 1976.

There were still some moments to remember during the final season at Filbert Street, despite relegation.

Two seasons on and it was all change as Leicester City had new kit manufacturers Le Coq Sportif replacing Fox Leisure, to go with new main shirt sponsors, switching from Walkers Crisps to LG Electronics.

The Club would also be moving stadium, marking this home shirt as the one used during their final-ever season at Filbert Street after 111 years.

Leicester end their first season away from Filbert Street with promotion.

The following year was Leicester’s first at their new home, now known as King Power Stadium. V-necks were back in as Micky Adams' side won promotion back to the top-flight that year wearing an all-blue kit with navy side panels and collar.

The Foxes reached the Championship Play-Offs, losing out to Cardiff City in the semi-finals.

An adapted crest and no shirt sponsor made it clear this special strip was to commemorate the Club's 125th year. The Foxes went close to back-to-back promotions under Nigel Pearson wearing this simplistic Joma design.

The Club secured their top-flight status with a draw at Sunderland in the penultimate fixture.

It would take the Foxes another few seasons to end their top-flight exile and a collared PUMA shirt announced their return. Gold panelling also finished off the look, as Leicester completed a stunning late revival to confirm a ‘Great Escape’ and see off the threat of an immediate return to the Championship. It is regarded as one of the greatest survivals from relegation in Premier League history.

What a kit. What a moment.

King Power's new logo was front and centre for the Club's greatest-ever season as the Foxes wore all blue, with gold detailing, during a campaign which started with Leicester City being relegation favourites and ended with Claudio Ranieri's men lifting the Premier League title.

A magical European night against Sevilla.

The Club's debut appearance in the UEFA Champions League saw a return to collars, while gold trims remained. A pattern similar to '90s kits also featured. City beat Club Brugge, Copenhagen, Porto and Sevilla in this shirt, before narrowly losing out to Atlético Madrid in the last-eight. Back in the league, a gold Premier League badge adorned the sleeve in a nod to City's status as current champions.

Beating PSV Eindhoven to reach the Club's maiden European semi-final.

A textured home shirt was introduced for the 2021/22 campaign, which began with the Foxes lifting the Club's second FA Community Shield - beating Premier League champions Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.

It also featured prominently during the Club's run to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa Conference League, eventually ending against AS Roma - the furthest City have reached in Europe. 

The 2022/23 home shirt will be available for a limited, online pre-order, exclusively from LCFC.com/shop from Friday 1 July. Read more, HERE. Shop the Club’s full Retro Range, HERE.
