Leicester City, who have regained Premier League status for the first time in 10 years, will play a friendly against Everton on Sunday July 27 at the Supachalasai Stadium in Bangkok, according to a report on the club’s official website (www.lcfc.com).

Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha told www.lcfc.com: “It will be with great pride that we bring our Championship-winning Leicester City squad back to Thailand for a match between two Premier League clubs that I am certain will capture the imagination of our football-loving nation.”
