Cardiff City fans will unfurl huge flag at CCS today and pass it along to the Leicester fans at opposite side of the stadium as a tribute to the clubs owner and the other four people killed in last weeks helicopter crash at the King Power Stadium.

Posting on social media Supporters Club representative Vince Alm explained what will happen. There will also be a minutes silence and wreath laying ceremony by the Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman. Leicester fans will have their own 'Scarves up for Vichai' tribute.


Arrangements from Cardiff City FC for Saturday fixture against Leicester;

As the players walk out the tunnel the attached 30x8m flag will be surfed up the Ninian stand between blocks 114 and 116 from pitchside to the back; it will then be surfed towards the Leicester supporters across 116,117 until reaching 118 & 119 where Leicester city supporters, and stewards will take the flag from Cardiff supporters and surf the flag into the Leicester fans to hold a loft during the minute silence as we pay our respect.

We urge everyone who is attending the match to take their seats early for the tribute to start and receive the flag in the Ninian stand.

Leicester City supporters are planning their own tributes during the game which you are welcome to join in with.

Kick off is at 3pm with the teams coming out of the tunnel earlier than normal to accomodate the planned respect to Leicester City, it's fans and the families of those killed.
