Leicester City fans are being treated to a free beer and a doughnut at the sell-out game against Southampton.

Foxes fans attending the home game can redeem the offer before the match at the King Power Stadium to celebrate the club owner’s birthday.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, whose birthday is on Monday, would like to thank fans for their “fantastic support” throughout the season.

Leicester is currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Leicester City club owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha will fly back to Thailand after the game against Southampton on Sunday

Each ticket holder can receive a complimentary bottle of beer or bottled water and a doughnut from collection points outside the stadium.

Susan Whelan, club’s chief executive, said Mr Srivaddhanaprabha has arrived to the UK from Thailand “just to be with us and to support the team” for the game.

“There are many special bonds that exist at our football club – between the players, the staff, the owners and the fans – and that’s been vital to the incredible season we’ve had,” Ms Whelan said.

“Everywhere we go, people are talking about it.

“We’re entering the run-in to the end of the season now, so that bond is going to be as important as it’s ever been in the next games, and the support of our fans is an essential part of the final push.”

Leicester are hoping to strengthen their position at the top of the table with six games to go.
