Foxes fans vote for blank shirt

Milan Mandaric
Mandaric says the loss of sponsorship revenue is a price worth paying

Leicester City will leave their home shirts blank as part of their 125th anniversary celebrations next season.

Fans were asked to choose a favourite design in an online poll and 65% voted for a plain shirt, free of branding.

Chairman Milan Mandaric told the club website: "The fans have voted and we have listened to them.

"This was the overwhelming choice by our supporters - it will be a totally iconic and unique shirt that is fitting for our 125th anniversary."

More than 20,000 votes were cast in the poll.

The new shirt will be unveiled to supporters at the final home game of this season against Scunthorpe.
