The 2012–13 season was Leicester City F.C.'s 108th season in the English football league system and their 61st (non-consecutive) season in the second tier of English football. It was their fourth consecutive season in the Championship.

Leicester began with a promising first half of the season and sat in second place at the beginning of February. However, a dramatic downturn in form which saw the Foxes win just 2 of their following 16 games saw Leicester not only drop out of the automatic promotion places, but the play-offs as well and they began the final game of the season against local rivals Nottingham Forest in eighth place. The Foxes won 2–3 with a dramatic late winner from Anthony Knockaert, and coupled with Bolton Wanderers failing to win, Leicester took the final play-off spot and finished sixth.

Leicester eventually lost to Watford in the play-off semi-final though, after a dramatic winner deep into injury time by Troy Deeney, which came as the result of a counter-attack from Anthony Knockaert's missed penalty (which would have sent Leicester through to the final).
