Owls v Leicester - Pre season Friendly

Recommended Posts



The Owls can confirm a pre-season friendly against Premier League Leicester City, which will be live streamed with multi-camera coverage on our official YouTube channel.


The behind closed doors fixture will take place at the Loughborough University Stadium on Saturday 29 August, with a 12 noon kick-off.

Wednesday head to Loughborough next week for a five-day training camp with outstanding facilities deployed by UEFA and the FA for the European Under-17 Championships and international tournaments respectively.


The Foxes friendly will be the climax to the Owls’ stint in the Midlands before returning to Sheffield and continuing preparations for the 2020/21 campaign.


With fans not permitted to attend games until October at the earliest, the live stream will ensure Wednesdayites can enjoy all the action against Leicester free of charge on YouTube.

Hope they're not expecting payment for the honour of them turning up after they've diddled us out of getting a fee for Hirst. 


Edit - just seen the full article and it's not at Hillsborough so they won't.

The game is just cover for DC's master plan 



Vardy to sign a contract with us at halftime as a player coach along the same lines as Derby/ Rooney deal 




Quick someone get onto Att's Instagram see if he's following him yet

It would be a fitting occasion to invite D Hirst and N Pearson to be guest players for us!


And Leicester could also have 2 ex-Owls:  G Hirst, who flew the nest, and J Vardy, who was forcibly ejected!

All good stuff coming out of Hillsborough lately. 

Good news that one of the top 20 biggest clubs in England needs a training camp an hours drive away to get decent facilities?


Chansiri forward planning at its finest.
