Prior to kick-off this weekend, the Northern Commercials Stadium will pause for a minute’s silence to honour those who paid the price for our freedom and to remember those who lost their lives in the tragic helicopter crash at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The City and Portsmouth captains will lay wreaths in the centre circle as the club honours the fallen servicemen and women to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.

On Saturday evening, following the conclusion of a Premier League match at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium, a helicopter crashed into a nearby car park moments after taking off.

The aircraft was carrying the club’s owner and chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, two members of his staff and two pilots. All those on board tragically lost their lives.
The players will be donning black armbands to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on Saturday evening.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and all others affected, including everybody associated with Leicester City Football Club.
