Leicester City to wear special tribute shirt against Burnley to honour Srivaddhanaprabha

Leicester City players will wear special shirt with the late Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s name embroidered on them when they play their first home match since the Thai magnate died in an helicopter crash, the Premier League club said.

Srivaddhanaprabha was killed with four others in a helicopter crash outside Leicester’s King Power Stadium on 27 October.

On Saturday, a special video will be played before their Premier League game against Burnley.

It was also confirmed that the club will present supporters at the game with scarves, pin badges, clap banners, and a special matchday programme as commemorative gifts.

“The Srivaddhanaprabha family and everyone at Leicester City Football Club have been deeply moved by the remarkable volume of generous and thoughtful tributes left at King Power Stadium,” the club said in a statement.

“The support of our fans, our community, and the football world during this darkest of weeks will never be forgotten.”

Tribute T-shirts will be worn by the players during their warm-up and their match kit will bear Srivaddhanaprabha’s name for the first half.

During the second half, the Foxes’ shirts will bear an embroidered poppy symbol in commemoration of Remembrance Sunday, with a two-minute silence to be held before kick-off.
