Thailand’s leading travel retail group King Power has owned Leicester City since 2010. Its logo was emblazoned at the front of the Foxes’ kits until the final matchday of the 2019-20 Premier League season. As the club’s official shirt partner, Leicester City received from King Power an extra £4m in revenue.
Ahead of the 2020-21 season, King Power teamed up with the Tourism Authority of Thailand. The agreement was made as an attempt to support Thailand’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This deal was reportedly worth £12m.
Apart from ownership, King Power is also the Official Stadium Naming Rights Partner of the club.
