Cardiff City fans to parade flag in memory of Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha

Cardiff City fans will parade a flag ahead of their clash with Leicester City at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Bluebirds faithful will join the away side in a special tribute to Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died, along with four others, in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium.

Fans who are attending the clash in the Welsh capital are encouraged to get to the stadium early to join in the pre-match tribute to the Thai owner.

Head of Cardiff City Supporters Club, Vince Alm, said: “As the players walk out the tunnel the attached 30x8m flag will be surfed up the Ninian stand between blocks 114 and 116 from pitchside to the back.

“It will then be surfed towards the Leicester supporters across 116,117 until reaching 118 & 119 where Leicester city supporters, and stewards will take the flag from Cardiff supporters and surf the flag into the Leicester fans to hold aloft during the minute silence as we pay our respect.

“We urge everyone who is attending the match to take their seats early for the tribute to start and receive the flag in the Ninian stand.”
