Liverpool F.C. play their home games in an all red strip, inspiring the nickname 'The Reds'. Leicester City F.C. play in royal blue, wearing a club crest that has featured a fox since 1948 due to the history of fox hunting in Leicestershire. The emblem on their badge led to their nickname, 'The Foxes'. Liverpool's crest features the liver bird, a mythical bird that has represented the city of Liverpool for over 800 years. The badge also features the title of the club anthem, 'You'll Never Walk Alone' as it is shown on the gates of their home stadium, Anfield. Leicester City play their home games in the King Power Stadium, also known as Leicester City Stadium, and they play a modern version of the 'Post Horn Gallop', another reference to Leicestershire's traditions of hunting, before the teams emerge from the tunnel.
