For all you Leicester City fans out there, we’ve highlighted five fixtures over the course of next season that every fan will want to attend.

With the fixtures for next season announced last week, fans from every Premier League club are marking dates in their calendar for incredible away days

Leeds vs Leicester City- 6th November

The biggest crime of last season was that we couldn’t see fans in Ellen Road. Leeds United fans are known to be the best and most vocal groups of supporters and to see Ellen Road empty was a sorry sight. Hopefully Boris will give the green light for full capacity stadiums and away fans can support their team from the ground rather than their sofa. Leeds away will be full of banter between the two sets of fans, and our record there is pretty good, especially the 4-1 win there last year.

Aston Villa Leicester City- 4th December

With Forrest and Derby rotting in the championship, the closest rivalry the Foxes have is Dean Smith’s Aston Villa in Birmingham. As you can imagine both sets of fans have a disliking to each other which makes the atmosphere incredible. Having previously gone to Aston Villa away two seasons ago I can tell you from experience it is a great away day, as you sit close to the pitch and have a good chance of hugging celebrating Leicester players, plus their record is always good at Villa Park.

Manchester City vs Leicester City- 26th December

The three games fans look to when the fixtures are released are the opening game, the last game and Boxing day. For a long time now the East Midlander’s have had some pretty high-profile Boxing Day fixtures with Man City, Liverpool and Man Utd all facing the Foxes in recent years. Leicester’s form at the Etihad has been indifferent over recent years but the Christmas cheer will hopefully spread to the squad. Usually the amazing owners provided some free stuff for travelling fans which is always an amazing bonus.

Manchester United vs Leicester City- 2nd April

This is probably the most obvious choice, and many might disagree, but having been to Old Trafford before I can say that it’s an incredible experience as an away fan. The ground is awe inspiring and usually the atmosphere is electric, something that is on the away day bucket list. Also it is always a great sight to see Ole succumb to Leicester.

Watford vs Leicester City- 15th May

Usually not a lot of fans would bookmark this fixture, but the last away game of the campaign is usually one every fan does look forward to. The last two seasons have seen Brendan Rodger’s men come close to Champions League with the final game of the season being their downfall.

So, hopefully Leicester are in a position to compete for Europe come the end of the year, so being at the ground is a must, plus there’s the added history with Watford from that horrible play-off match.
