Leicester City Football Club

In August 2010, King Power Group Chairman Mr. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha announced the acquisition of Leicester City Football Club, appointing Mr. Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha as Vice Chairman. The first mission is to prepare the 130-year old Club for long-term stability and success by initiating changes in the Club’s operations and business structures through substantial investments. This included renovations to the training fields and facilities, new sports science and technical analysis methodologies, and the recruitment of new management, coaching teams, and players, along with the development of the LCFC Academy for young talent. As a result, Leicester City was promoted to the Premier League in May 2014.In the first year of King Power’s ownership, the Club embarked on a tour of Thailand with its first team players, culminating in a friendly match against the Thai national team held at the Suphachalasai Stadium on 9th October 2010. Successive matches in Thailand followed, the latest being against Everton Football Club in a pre-season friendly on 27th July 2014, with Leicester City being the victors. One of Khun Vichai’s key ambitions is to develop Leicester City’s fan base internationally and particularly in Asia, while boosting Thailand’s global reputation and capabilities through the management of the Club. Through training with the Club’s soon-to-be-implemented local education and coaching programme, he hopes to put Thai footballers on the world map.
