Foxes Lotto has been launched to give fans the chance to win life-changing jackpots while raising vital funds for both the LCFC Academy and the LCFC Community Trust.
Leicester City's youth development programme has a long and proud tradition of producing great footballing talent, with the likes of Peter Shilton, Gary Lineker, Emile Heskey, and Andy King among the most notable names to have made an impact at both domestic and international level.
In recent years, the Leicester City Academy has also helped to develop a number of players who have gone on to make the breakthrough into the Leicester City First Team squad, many of whom are still making great strides in the game thanks to support provided by the dedicated team of staff within the Academy.
We are rightfully proud of the record that the LCFC Academy has in producing players, with Academy graduates such as Andy King, Jeff Schlupp, and Liam Moore being perfect examples of our success.
Having been under the guidance of our dedicated Academy staff, Andy King has gone on to make over 200 appearances at First Team level and represented Wales at international level.
As well as Andy, the Academy has also developed a number of other young players such as Richard Stearman, James Wesolowski, Joe Mattock, Jordan Stewart, Max Gradel, Conrad Logan, Stephen Dawson, Chris O'Grady, Matt Piper, Jeff Schlupp and Liam Moore, who have all represented Leicester City in recent years.
LCFC Community Trust
The LCFC Community Trust is the Club's charitable arm which utilises the power of football to deliver inspiring projects that link the Club to communities across Leicestershire and beyond. Many of the Trust's projects meet the needs of young people by engaging with them across a range of themed delivery in Education, Health, Social Inclusion and Sports Participation.
Education provides the opportunity to enable young people to reach their levels of attainment in Generic National Curriculum PE, in addition to providing exciting Extended Hours Learning activities in football specific coaching. Teacher Training is also provided to leave an LCFC legacy in the schools which enables teachers to motivate their pupils in partnership with our excellent coaches to learn through football - "the Leicester City way". The Education strand also addresses the needs of young people seeking employment skills, experience and qualifications.
The Healthy Living agenda is also an important aspect of the Trust's education delivery. Young people are taught the importance of a healthy lifestyle which is maintained by exercise and diet.
The Trust's Social Inclusion strand harnesses the universal appeal of football to enable under-represented groups to take part in sport. The Trust has an inspirational Disability Inclusive sport programme which meets the needs of disabled participants across a wide spectrum of ability.
The Girls' Centre of Excellence provides the opportunity for young female footballers to pursue excellence by representing the Club at national standard.
The Trust offers a progressive continuum in Sports Participation which provides the opportunity for young people to take part in organised sport in a safe enjoyable environment. Players who demonstrate an aptitude to improve are provided with supportive exit routes to local Clubs or the LCFC Academy Development Centres to develop and realise their potential.
