Picture: Leicester City fans will be excited to see who is following them on Twitter

It's real. Leicester City are in the Champions League.

Leicester City's fantastic season may seem like a dream, but when they wake up next season the reality is they will be in the Champions League.

The Foxes qualified for the competition a fortnight ago, and Manchester City's failure to beat Newcastle last night means they are guaranteed to be in the group stages and do not risk having to go through the qualifiers.

Now it is even more real, with the official Champions League twitter account now following Leicester City on the social networking site as of this morning.


Leicester's qualification for Europe's elite competition is huge for the club. They will receive a big financial boost from television revenue, and increase the awareness of the club worldwide, potentially creating new fans.

They also stand a better chance of holding onto their key players, while also being able to attract exciting new signings.

The Foxes are in the Champions League, it's happening, and if they play their hand well, they could be there to stay.
