Here's a bet we all wish we got on earlier.
The team is known as 'Leicester City', which has a big connection to '2016'.
Leicester = 3+5+9+3+5+1+2+5+9 = 42
City = 3+9+2+7 = 21
Leicester City = 63
When you sum one through sixty-three, it totals 2016. Thus, the unexpected champs in 2016.
CNN's timestamp ties in with them winning it on the 123rd day of the year.
Conspiracy = 3+6+5+1+7+9+9+1+3+7 = 51
Conspiracy = 3+15+14+19+16+9+18+1+3+25 = 123
It should also be noted, in keeping track of the relationship between the Carolina Panthers and the Leicester Premier Club, the Panthers lost the Super Bowl 85-days before Leicester won their championship. It seems the clue might have been with the Panthers kicker, Graham Gano, all along.
Think about it, the kicker... Graham Gano = 85
