The 2010–11 season was Leicester City F.C.'s 106th season in the English football league system and their 59th (non-consecutive) season in the second tier of English football. They played their second consecutive season in the Football League Championship after being promoted from League One in the 2008-09 season.

After two seasons in charge, Nigel Pearson left the club in the summer to take the vacant managerial position at Hull City. Former Portuguese international Paulo Sousa was named as Pearson's replacement, joining from Swansea City to become Leicester's first ever non-British or Irish manager. However, he was sacked after just nine league games in charge, after a dreadful start saw Leicester sit bottom of the league.[1] Chris Powell and Mike Stowell took temporary charge, before former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson was announced as Leicester boss on 3 October.

Leicester's form improved under Eriksson and a good run after the new year saw Leicester reach 7th place and briefly flirt with hopes of reaching the play-offs, however a run of just 2 wins in 11 league games between 22 February-22 April saw these hopes all but extinguished and Leicester eventually ended up finishing mid-table.
