Thursday Doors FA Cup

On Saturday 15th May 2021, Leicester City Football Club won the Football Association Cup for the first time since the club was founded in 1884. The club is older than Arsenal and Chelsea (whom Leicester beat in the final 1-0).

Leicester City is a relatively small football club, whose stadium only seats 32,312 fans. The club has a reputation for being the underdog and has tremendous support from the citizens of Leicester – see this small selection of doors with posters and LCFC flags.

There is even a Leicester City FC flag over the doorway to the cathedral (and there is also a hidden reference to LCFC winning the premiership title five years ago in one of its modern stained glass windows).

The top four clubs in the premier league go through to the European Championship competition. Sadly, Leicester dropped to fifth place on the final day of the season, and missed the cut. This was the first time LCFC dropped out of the top four during the entire 2020/21 season.

It was the most interesting last day of the season for some time. As an Arsenal fan, it was a very disappointing season, but at least we don’t have to turn up for the third tier of European football… embarrassing.
