Why does he take a helicopter to games?

It is unclear as to why the Leicester owner uses a helicopter to attend matches.

But it has become commonplace to see his blue copter on the centre circle once everyone has left.

Srivaddhanaprabha is a regular attendee at matches, having enjoyed the celebrations of their Premier League success

in 2015.

What is the helicopter route?

It is believed that the 60-year-old travels with his guests from London.

With over a 100 miles from Leicester’s ground, Srivaddhanaprabha has flown in instead of taking over modes of transport to return to the capital.

While it remains unknown as to his route thereafter, the airport links in London allow the Thai billionaire to hop on a private jet.
