The Foxes postponed their Tuesday EFL Cup tie, but will go ahead with Saturday’s 11 a.m. ET kickoff at Cardiff City.

Both clubs will observe a minute’s silence before the match, and players will wear black armbands in honor.

Players had been offered grief counseling after the tragic death of their owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and four others in a helicopter crash outside the King Power Stadium last Saturday.

There is a book of condolences open at King Power Stadium, and there was a Monday memorial service at the venue.
