A Rainbow Looks Over The King Power Stadium For Leicester Game

A Rainbow Looks Over The King Power Stadium For Leicester Game

A rainbow emerged over the King Power before Leicester City's first home game since Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha passed away, a touching moment ahead of their 3pm kick-off against Burnley.

The pictures were taken as supporters walked from Jubilee Square to the King Power stadium in the #WalkForVichai.

Leicester City fans and players took the time to remember a wonderful chairman who gave so much to the club and the city.

On October 28, 2018, the world mourned an incredibly kind and generous man who allowed football fans to dream again.

He helped mastermind one of the greatest sporting stories of any generation, but he also gave the people of Leicester hope and goodwill in an uncertain time.

Vichai bought Leicester in 2010 when they were struggling in the Championship and in turn, cleared their debts by loaning the club more than £100 million in the first four years.

Srivaddhanaprabha would not only pump money into the football club, but his generosity toward the city of Leicester was nothing short of incredible.



He donated £1 million to Leicester University's medical department, and another £1 million to Leicester Royal Infirmary. He would also hand over £2m towards a new children's hospital - and it didn't stop there.

He memorably gave Leicester fans free beer, free scarves and free cakes during the famous Premier League title win in 2015/16 and often organised free bus travel to away games.

Not to mention the fact he bought every player a new car after they won the Premier League.

People from around the world have paid tribute to the 60-year-old, and many have said the same thing. He was a good man - a generous man.
