The 7 May match against Everton, which could see Leicester become EPL champions with the foxes on the verge of pulling off the ultimate sporting underdog story, tickets for their final Premier League home game of the season sold out in a record 90 minutes.
Thousands of Foxes supporters were either glued to their telephones and laptops, or queuing up outside the King Power Stadium this morning – ready for the Everton tickets to go on sale at 9am.
Crowds began gathering as early as 6am, as Gold and Family Fox Membership holders rushed to secure their seats.

The Foxes face Everton at King Power Stadium on Saturday, May 7 in their penultimate match of this astonishing 2015/16 season – a campaign in which, after Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Sunderland they sit seven points clear at the summit of the table with just five games to go.
However, some unscrupulous fans have already been capitalizing on City’s success by touting their match day tickets on e-Bay and other web sites for as much as £3,000.
Farewell the Foxes…
