The young Foxes reached the final of the Shield competition in 2023.

Five other British clubs make up the draw, with 16 teams in total taking part in the main tournament group stage. Aston Villa and West Ham United will both compete in Group A, while Brighton & Hove Albion are in Group B and both Fulham and Rangers form half of Group C.

Two-time winners Leicester reached the quarter-finals last year, winning two of their three group games, including success over the Magpies, to top the group, before losing out in the last-eight. Moved into the Shield competition, the Foxes were beaten finalists.
