Two-Minute Silence At Leicester

Tributes planned for Foxes chairman at Saturday's game

8 November 2018

The Clarets’ supporters will be invited to join in a two-minute silence ahead of Saturday’s game at Leicester City.

The fixture is the first at the King Power Stadium since the fatal helicopter crash that claimed the lives of five people, including club chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

Leicester will stage a number of commemorative events around Saturday’s game, when players, staff and supporters will pay their respects and show their appreciation for the contribution made to the club and the city by the former Thai businessman.

The fixture is also the Foxes’ Remembrance Day fixture, which will be acknowledged in the extended silence before kick-off.

Both teams will wear black armbands and Burnley chairman Mike Garlick will be among those to lay a wreath in the centre circle.

There may be some traffic disruption around the ground in the run-up to the game due to a planned tribute march of Leicester supporters.

Supporters are therefore urged to get to the ground early (please see the link below) and a free commemorative match-day programme will be given to all fans – home and away.
