A special two-hour programme, 'LCFC Radio: A Tribute To Khun Vichai', will be broadcast from 1pm GMT on Saturday, ahead of Leicester City's fixture against Burnley (3pm GMT kick-off).

- 'LCFC Radio: A Tribute To Khun Vichai' will be broadcast from 1pm GMT on Saturday
- The two-hour programme will be available on the Club's official Facebook and Twitter feeds
- Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan, Andy King and Alan 'The Birch' Birchenall have all contributed to the programme
- Supporters can also hear from Claudio Ranieri, Nigel Pearson, Craig Shakespeare, Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater and Leonardo Ulloa

Including contributions from key figures in the Club's history - including Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan, Andy King and Alan 'The Birch' Birchenall - LCFC Radio will pay tribute to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the Club's Chairman who tragically lost his life alongside four others on Saturday 27 October.

A man of grace and generosity, Khun Vichai was instrumental in developing Leicester City into a football club that completed one of the greatest sporting miracles of all time by winning the Premier League in 2016.

Hosts Lewis Mason and Dan Bates, with Foxes icons Matt Elliott, Gerry Taggart and Leicestershire broadcasting legend Nev Foulger, along with live guests, will retell that story live on LCFC Radio, spanning from promotion to the top flight in 2014 to the present day.

It's a four-year journey that started with a Club-record points haul in the Championship, followed by possibly the greatest of Great Escapes, an unbelievable title triumph one year later and an intrepid run to the quarter-finals in our maiden UEFA Champions League campaign.

Over the course of two hours on Saturday, the Blue Army can hear from Foxes favourites including former managers Claudio Ranieri, Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare, while iconic former players, including Riyad Mahrez, Danny Drinkwater and Leonardo Ulloa, share their memories of Khun Vichai.

The live broadcast, available on Facebook and Twitter for free until kick-off, will also include a very special tribute video for Khun Vichai, which will be played on the big screens at King Power Stadium.

For the match, meanwhile, Bates, John Dunn and Taggart will talk you through all the action from King Power Stadium as the Foxes tackle Sean Dyche's Burnley in the Club's annual Remembrance Fixture.

Afterwards, we'll speak to figures from Claude Puel's changing room - as well as the City manager himself - to reflect on Leicester City's final match before the third international break of the 2018/19 season.
