Leicester supporters were able to toast a memorable 2015 with a free beer at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Foxes' owners and club partner Singha Beer offered a free drink to each fan attending their game against Manchester City as a thank-you for their support during the calendar year.

Leicester started 2015 propping up the Barclays Premier League but escaped relegation thanks to a fine run of form, which they continued into the current campaign, meaning they head into the new year challenging at the top of the table and eyeing a place in Europe.

In his programme notes ahead of the match, vice chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: " There has been so many highlights from 2015 - the amazing escape last season, the fantastic start to this one, club records broken, Premier League records broken and moments that will live with us all for a long time.

"You have been a huge part of it and Leicester City heads into 2016 in better shape than it has ever been.

"As a thank you for the role you have played in such a great year, our friends at Singha Beer will be buying the first round tonight. Enjoy it, you've all earned it!"
