Leicester players to wear special kits in tribute to owner Vichai

Leicester City players will wear shirts with club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s name embroidered

This is when they play their first home match since the Thai tycoon was killed in a helicopter crash, the Premier League club said.

Vichai was one of five killed in the crash near the King Power Stadium after Leicester’s last home league match on Oct. 27.

Leicester said they will pay tribute to Vichai with a video presentation when they host Burnley in the league on Saturday, while supporters have also planned a march to the venue.

Both teams will wear black armbands during the game, with a two-minute silence to be observed before the kick off, while Leicester’s players will wear the tribute shirts in the first half and shirts with a poppy emblem for the second to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.
