Leicester owner will attend FA Cup final with Chelsea after being cleared to fly from Thailand

Published on: 07 May 2021

Leicester owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha will attend the FA Cup Final after being cleared to fly from Thailand to watch his club take on Chelsea.

Srivaddhanaprabha – known as Khun Top – has not been able to see Leicester live this season due to coronavirus restrictions, but Sportsmail understands he is now in the United Kingdom having fulfilled the necessary testing requirements.

He will also be at King Power Stadium on Friday as the Foxes meet Newcastle in the Premier League.

Khun Top was very keen to be at Wembley as Leicester attempt to make history by winning the FA Cup for the first time in their 137-year existence.

The Srivaddhanaprabha family took control of Leicester in 2010 and are hugely popular owners, overseeing the club’s remarkable march to the Premier League title in 2016.

Khun Top’s father Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha – known as Khun Vichai - died - along with four other people - in a helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium in October 2018.

At the time, Khun Top said in a statement: ‘From him, I have received a very big mission and legacy to pass on and I intend to do just that.

‘He has left me with a legacy to continue and I will do everything I can to carry on his big vision and dreams.’

Earlier this season, Leicester moved into their new £90million training base to the north of the city, which is rated one of the best of its kind in Europe.

They are also trying to seal a place in the Champions League for only the second time. Brendan Rodgers’ men are third in the table with five games left, starting with the Newcastle fixture.
