Leicester wears two different jerseys for Saturday with Burnley

Leicester will wear two different jerseys next Saturday with Burnley.

In the first half, they will wear shirts bearing the name of the late club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, while in the second half they will play in shirts with the traditional Remembrance Day poppy.

The fans will receive a selection of gifts to celebrate the life of the Thai billionaire who died in a crash of his helicopter and left his last home game against West Ham.

Followers are presented with scarves, pins, bobbins and special programs to commemorate the life of the man who became known as the boss.

The club has also announced plans to respectfully relocate the thousands of floral tributes to a new location near the crash site.

The club has asked advocates to be on their way early, as it could lead to a traffic jam caused by a walk from the city center to King Power Stadium, which is expected to be taken by some 20,000 followers.

There will be a break of two minutes before the match, and at 2:45 pm a tribute video will also be shown to the deceased chairman.

Flying for the funeral ceremony means the Foxes squad barely had a minute to return to normal routine.

Leicester players traveled directly to Cardiff across the Far East and returned on Tuesday after a 15-hour return flight.

Foxes won 1-0 at Cardiff City Stadium thanks to Demarai Gray's goal, but Saturday's game promises to be even more of an emotional event.
