The 2011–12 season is Leicester City F.C.'s 107th season in the English football league system and their 60th (non-consecutive) season in the second tier of English football. They are playing their third consecutive season in the Football League Championship.

The summer saw Leicester spend big in an attempt to gain promotion back to the Premier League, but an inconsistent start saw manager Sven-Göran Eriksson sacked after a 3–0 defeat at home to struggling Millwall saw Leicester sitting in 13th position after 13 games.

After days of negotiations, Nigel Pearson was finally re-appointed as manager on 15 November 2011, starting his second spell at the club after leaving for Hull City 17 months earlier.[1] However, the club continued their inconsistent form under Pearson and sat mid-table for virtually the entire season before eventually finishing in 9th place.

Kit and sponsorship[edit]

On 6 May 2011 a preview of the 2011–12 home kit was released on the official Leicester City website. It was announced that the kit would be worn against Ipswich Town on the last game of the 2010–11 season.[7] On 7 May 2011 the home kit was revealed to have a collar for the first time since the 2001–2002 season with white shorts and blue socks with a white trim.[8] Meanwhile, Leicester will play in an all-white away strip with a blue trim.[9] King Power will remain as the shirt sponsor for the second consecutive season.
