Ndidi, Iheanacho To Face Coventry In Leicester’s Championship Opener

Super Eagles stars Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho will face Coventry in
Leicester City’s 2023/24 Championship league opener.

This was confirmed on Leicester’s official website on Thursday.

The game comes up on Sunday 6 August inside the King Power stadium.

Leicester, who last played in the Championship in 2013/14, when they were crowned champions, will face their Midlands rivals on the opening weekend in what will be the first meeting between the sides since 2012.

The Foxes will then face Huddersfield Town away from home in their second league game on Saturday 12 August, before playing Cardiff City at King Power Stadium on Saturday 19 August.

A trip to Rotherham United follows a week later, before returning to Filbert Way on Saturday 2 September to round-up the first five league fixtures of the new campaign.

Ipswich Town will be the opponents on Boxing Day, followed by another away visit to Cardiff City on Friday 29 December ahead of the first game of 2024 at home to Huddersfield Town on New Year’s Day.

The final three fixtures of the campaign will see the Foxes host West Bromwich Albion ahead of a visit to Preston North End and a final day clash with Blackburn Rovers at King Power Stadium on Saturday 4 May.

Leicester were relegated to the Championship last season with Leeds United and Southampton.
