During the 2006–07 English football season, Leicester City F.C. competed in the Football League Championship.

Season summary[edit]

Another poor season saw Leicester struggle near the foot of the Championship table. Manager Rob Kelly was sacked after a 3-0 defeat at Plymouth Argyle and replaced by former Norwich City boss Nigel Worthington, who steered the Foxes to safety. Worthington expressed an interest in becoming permanent manager, but instead the club appointed Milton Keynes Dons manager Martin Allen as manager.

Kit[edit]

Leicester City's kit was manufactured by English sports retailer JJB Sports and sponsored by Narborough-based bank Alliance & Leicester.
