The famous Premier League Trophy will be at one of Leicestershire's most famous tourist attractions today - the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre.

Visitors can see the famous trophy between 1.30pm and 3.30pm in the centre's Heritage Room.

We're delighted to be able to offer our visitors the opportunity to see the FA Premier League trophy and share in Leicester City's success last season.

Both the Richard III story which we tell at Bosworth and the success of the football team attracted significant worldwide attention.

– Councillor Richard Blunt

Leicester City won the trophy in spectacular fashion last year - but sit just one point above the relegation zone this season.

Morgan: Leicester can defy odds to defend title

Leicester captain Wes Morgan believes his side can defy the odds again by defending their Premier League title.

The Foxes' 5000/1 success last year captured the nation's imagination but they once again find themselves behind the division's traditional heavyweights in the pre-season betting.

Morgan, though, insists there is no lack of belief in the dressing room.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's Community Shield against Manchester United, Morgan told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek: "Last season no-one thought it was possible and we did that, so why not? We're defending champions, we're full of confidence, we know what we're capable of.

"On our day we are capable of beating anyone so I don't see we can't go ahead and do it again.

"We're going to have to be ready for the onslaught, so to speak, but that's to be expected as defending champions. We'll be ready when the time comes."
