Fans Blasted For Posting Leicester City's Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Tribute Memorabilia On eBay
Angry Leicester City fans have slammed supporters who are selling Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha memorabilia on eBay.
Fans that watched their side take on Burnley at the King Power Stadium on Saturday received an assortment of commemorative items for free, ranging from special edition programmes to bags and scarfs.
After the match, however, different listings have sprung up on the website. One of the current listings is on £26 after 19 bids at the time of this writing.
"In memory of the late Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, Leicester City chairman. In very good condition: poster, scarf, special edition unopened programme, unopened badge and Leicester City plastic bag," reads the page's listing.
Another listing, which is on £42.00 after eight bids, reads the following: "Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha set from the Leicester City vs Burnley [on] 10th November 2018. All unopened and not worn. Includes clapper, scarf, brochure, pin badge, ticket and plastic carrier bag it all came in."
The 61-year-old Thai businessman was leaving the stadium after Leicester's 1-1 draw to West Ham United in a private helicopter when it crashed in the King Power's car park.
The club confirmed that Srivaddhanaprabha had passed away a day later. Two members of his staff -- Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare -- pilot Eric Swaffer and passenger Izabela Roza Lechowicz also died in the crash.
Recently, Leicester City announced that a memorial statue of their former owner would be built outside of the King Power.
"We will never be able to repay what he did for us -- for me as his son, us as his family, everyone connected to Leicester City and beyond -- but we are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy," Khun Aiyawatt said.
"Our continued growth as a club, our state-of-the-art new training ground and our planned stadium expansion will help realise his vision for Leicester City.
