Leicester City owners offer fans free beer ahead of final game of ‘remarkable year’

Leicester City fans will be given a free beer before their final home game of 2015 to celebrate an amazing year.

Owners Vichai and Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha will foot the bill for around 30,000 drinks when the league leaders take on Manchester City on December 29.

Supporters will be given their free drink upon producing their matchday ticket at allocated collection points just outside the King Power Stadium, with non-alcoholic drinkers being offered a free bottle of water instead.

This time last year, the Foxes were bottom of the table with just 10 points after 17 games with fans worrying about an immediate return to the Championship.

But this season has been very different, as Jamie Vardy’s goals have left supporters excited about potentially seeing Claudio Ranieri’s men in Europe next season.
