Leicester Fans Cause mini Earthquake
Leicester City’s amazing season in this current PL campaign is sending shockwaves, quite literally, through the city of Leicester.
Geology students at the University of Leicester have observed a large seismic activity on their earthquake monitoring equipment.
This equipment has been installed at Hazel Community Primary School near the club’s King Power Stadium.
The students realized that the equipment recorded small earthquakes produced by the sudden energy released by the
Leicester fans whenever their team scores a goal at home matches.
“A few days after we installed the equipment at the school and were analysing data collected, we noticed large peaks on the seismogram during football matches being held in the stadium nearby.
“A closer look showed us there was a strong correlation between the exact time Leicester scored at home and the occurrence of the large seismic signals.
“We concluded that our equipment was actually measuring small earthquakes produced by the sudden energy release caused when Leicester fans celebrated at the moment a goal was scored.”
