Thanks For Your Support, Foxes Trust tell Bluebirds fans and Cardiff City

We received the following letter from Leicester City’s Foxes Trust:

Dear Keith/Tim,

On behalf of the Foxes Trust and, more widely, of the whole Leicester City family, I would like to thank you for the support given to our club and our fans during the match at your stadium on Saturday, 3 November 2018.

It has been well-documented what an unusual, indeed unprecedented, occasion the match was likely to be. In the event, it was completed with great dignity, great solemnity and a true feeling of togetherness from the whole footballing community.

The people of Cardiff were magnificent to our travelling fans – yes, even those people whose main focus for the day was on certain rugby international. The provision of free food for our fans was a wonderful touch by Cardiff City. The pre-match ceremonies, including the exchange of flags, was done with great dignity. The players of both teams can hold their heads high that, despite the circumstances, they produced a properly competitive game of  football.

The scene at the end of the match, when Leicester City’s squad and staff came to be with the travelling fans was unlike anything any of us have witnessed before. For those Leicester fans who were at the game, it will be one they never forget. That 15-minutes will mean that for 3,000 Leicester fans, Cardiff, Cardiff City Football Club and the Cardiff City Stadium will always have a special place in our memories and our hearts.

We will also be sending a letter directly to Cardiff City Football Club, expressing the same sentiments.

Cardiff fans and on the day had created a memorable banner, which now has a prominent position in the place of remembrance for Khun Vichai at the King Power Stadium. It simply states, “Blue together”.

With thanks and respect,

Ian Bason,

Chairman – Foxes Trust
