  8. https://www.lcfc.com/news/1110891/lcfc-staff--players-pay-final-tribute-to-khun-vichai LCFC Staff & Players Pay Final Tribute To Khun Vichai Published 4 hrs 38 mins ago Khun Vichai tragically lost his life alongside four other people in a helicopter crash at King Power Stadium on Saturday 27 October, 2018. A Leicester City congregation, including senior staff and First Team players, arrived in Thailand on Wednesday before attending a private vigil in remembrance. On Thursday, they joined Vice-Chairman Khun Aiyawatt ‘Top’ Srivaddhanaprabha at the Buddhist Debsirindrawas Temple. First Team Manager Brendan Rodgers attended the ceremony. Upon their arrival, the players offered heartfelt condolences to Khun Vichai’s family - wife Khun Aimon and children Khun Voramas, Khun Apichet, Khun Aroonroong, and Khun Top. During Khun Vichai’s Chairmanship at King Power Stadium, his dedication to establishing Leicester City as a force in English football transformed the Club beyond all recognition. Inspired by their Chairman’s knowledge and guidance, Leicester City wrote one of the most extraordinary fairy tales in football history by winning the Premier League title in 2016. Leicester City's title-winning left-back, Christian Fuchs, pays his respects. Khun Vichai’s immeasurable impact on the city of Leicester, meanwhile, is at the heart of a legacy which everyone at the Club is determined to protect over coming seasons. In November of last year, The LCFC Foxes Foundation was renamed The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation in recognition of the love our Chairman felt for the people of Leicester. Throughout his close association with the city, Khun Vichai committed over £4M in personal donations to Leicester’s universities, hospitals and charities – improving the lives of thousands of people across the Leicestershire region. The Club's staff watched live coverage of the ceremony on Filbert Way. Following 100 days of mourning, the cremation, staged in Khwaeng Wat Thepsirin, Bangkok, began with Matika-Pangsukula recitations, the chanting of the Higher Teachings of the Buddha. At King Power Stadium, staff were also joined by Buddhist monks, who watched on big screens as a ceremony which reflected Khun Vichai’s family values took place in Thailand. Following religious recitations at the Main Royal Crematorium, His Majesty The King graciously presided over the Cremation Ceremony. Doves were released by the Club's staff at King Power Stadium. At King Power Stadium, as the cremation took place in Thailand, doves symbolising Khun Vichai’s generosity of spirit were released into the heavens from the centre circle. As Leicester City looks to the future, it is Khun Vichai’s legacy which will act as inspiration for everyone at the Club as we strive to add to the memories we have already shared. On Saturday, the Club’s congregation will return to England to continue their preparations for a Premier League fixture against AFC Bournemouth next weekend.

  10. Leicester City's old Filbert Street ground could finally be redeveloped - 17 years after club moved It's been a long time coming 04:00, 22 MAR 2019 Updated11:23, 22 MAR 2019 The site of Leicester city’s former Filbert Street ground could now finally be redeveloped nearly 20 years after the club moved out. The club quit its old stadium in 2002 and made the short move to to its 32,000 seat home. The Filbert Street ground, opened in 1891, was then demolished after being sold to developers for £3.75 million. The proposed Filbert Street development What's now planned? A large complex of student flats – Filbert Village – has been built but most of the 4.2 acre site remains undeveloped. Part of it is being used as a car park but the rest is largely derelict and has over the years sparked complaints about its litter-strewn state. Now there is fresh hope of the area being redeveloped with the submission of a fresh planning application to Leicester City Council. Developers Winfox Ltd are proposing a new 242 room flat building up to 12 storeys high with underground and surface parking. Another four floor block of 43 affordable flats is planned and ten three storey terraced houses. What do you think of the latest plans? thanks for your vote Agents for Winfox have confirmed the scheme is similar to one that was first proposed before Filbert Street was demolished but never implemented because of the economic downturn. City mayor Sir Peter Soulsby said the developers had contacted him about the proposals. He said: “They are coming to see me soon and it looks like they are very serious about getting this site developed at long last. “It has been frustrating and problematic getting that site back into use. “There have been quite a few plans that have never quite got off the ground for a variety of reasons. “The site has been at various times been in a bit of a state and has attracted complaints. “The solution would be to get it built on at long last though it would be down to the city council’s planning committee to decide whether the proposed development is appropriate.” The site of the old Filbert Street stadium (Image: Leicester Mercury) In 2013 the council took enforcement action against the then owners of the site who had been using part of it as an unauthorised car park. At the time the authority said the continued use of it as a 220 space car park had been a barrier to the regeneration of the area. Various planning applications have been approved but not been enacted. The council’s planning officers are considering the scheme. https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/leicester-citys-old-filbert-street-2672053
