Leicester City supporters caused a small earthquake while celebrating the team's late winner against Norwich City last month.
Students at the University of Leicester discovered that the fans' celebrations caused an earthquake that registered 0.3 on the Richter scale.
The group placed earthquake-detecting equipment at a primary school near Leicester's stadium.
"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," Sky Sports News quotes first-year student Richard Hoyle as saying.
"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."
Leicester have a five-point lead at the top of the table with nine games left to play.
