Owls tribute to King of Thailand on Saturday

20 October 2016

Sheffield Wednesday, in a show of unity and reverence for our chairman Dejphon Chansiri and the people of Thailand, will mark the recent passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej at Saturday’s home game against Queens Park Rangers.

The king of Thailand, aged 88, was the longest reigning monarch in the world, with 70 years on the throne.

Just prior to kick-off, supporters will be asked to stand in silence and pay their respects whilst the royal anthem of Thailand - Sansoen Phra Barami - is played on the big screen, which will also display images of King Bhumibol Adulyade.

As they did at Huddersfield last Sunday, the Wednesday players will wear black armbands for the R's fixture, while the flags at Hillsborough will fly at half-mast for the remainder of a 30-day mourning period since the king’s passing.

Our sympathies remain with Mr Chansiri, his family and friends, and everyone in Thailand at this extremely difficult time.
