On Sunday 14th July, the inaugural Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Trophy will be played as the 3.00 pm match to mark the tragic loss of King Power Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in a helicopter crash at the King Power football stadium in Leicester in October 2018. A new trophy has been commissioned and will be presented to the winning team. This all-important fourth quarter final match of the weekend will be preceded by a programme of entertainment to both encompass Vichai’s sporting passions and to also celebrate the life of the philanthrophic Thai businessman.
Amongst the entertainment planned is a children’s football match between local boys and girls making up a Leicester City and a Midhurst team in King Power’s home and away shirts. To recognise Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s passion for equestrian sport, there will also be a parade of some of his race-horses, planned to include the King Power stables’ Cleonte, winner of the Queen Alexandra Stakes on the final day of Ascot 2019. Tickets for the day can be purchase here – only £5 per person over 12, cars free.
