Leicester City To Hold Annual Remembrance Fixture Today
- LCFC Remembrance Fixture to take place on Saturday
- The Club have raised over £260,000 for The Royal British Legion to-date
- Supporters urged to take part in the crowd display during the sounding of The Last Post
Supporting the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, LCFC will commemorate the sacrifices of servicemen and women in conflicts past and present with a day dedicated to the Armed Forces community, with the Club’s Remembrance Fixtures raising over £260,000 to-date.
The Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Vice Lord Lieutenant, County President of the British Legion, County Chairman of The Royal British Legion, Police Cadet and Air Cadet will lay wreaths on the centre circle prior to the sounding of The Last Post.
Ahead of kick-off, nine military vehicles will arrive in convoy and park on the North brickweave of King Power Stadium from 2.30pm – 5.30pm, while more than 100 volunteers from The Royal British Legion will be bucket collecting to raise money to support the Armed Forces community.
Furthermore, The Air Cadets band will be performing on stage opposite the Foxes Fanstore from 3.30pm – 5.30pm, and supporters will also be able to take part in various accessible games and have a go at our inflatable goal!
Limited-edition dual branded poppy badges will be available to purchase for £3 from the Foxes Fanstore, with all proceeds going to The Royal British Legion.
To form part of the crowd display during the sounding of The Last Post, we kindly ask both sets of supporters to hold the sheets left for them on their seats above their heads.
Alan Birchenall, Club Ambassador, said: “The support this Football Club and the Blue Army shows to The Royal British Legion each year is incredible and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
“We’ll never be able to truly show our gratitude towards those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country, but remembrance fixtures like these go a small way towards demonstrating how thankful we are.”
