Leicester City players will have a chance to party in Las Vegas if they win the Premier League title this season, with a one million pounds bonus to spend as the Foxes’ owners have promised Claudio Ranieri’s boys a trip to Sin City if they manage to pull off Mission Impossible.
League leaders Leicester will move a step closer to a sensational Premier League title with a win against Arsenal today. Now it is revealed that the club’s Thai owners have assured if they are crowned champions this term, then the players will have a mega party on the famous Vegas strip.
Foxes chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has also promised the bonuses, which actually work out at around £40,000 for every single team member, to splash out on the gambling tables of Vegas.
However, the club hierarchy had earlier failed to include a title bonus in players’ rewards package because they believed it was next to impossible, having escaped relegation just last season.
Players are also on a unique rewards system that gives them bonus for every ten points they achieve during the Premier League campaign which literally meant a windfall when they reached the 40-point mark, it was their initial target to avoid a relegation fight like the last term, but now they have set their sights higher after staying firmly in the title contention.
Players are also said to be in high spirits following last weekend’s impressive 3-1 win against Manchester City and morale is at an all-time high this season among the team.
Ranieri’s boys visit the Emirates today hoping to snatch another sensational win, in fact after this match they have no more fixtures against the current top four.
The Vegas sweetener certainly gives the Foxes an added incentive to finish off the season in a majestic way and then enjoy the mother of all parties.
Leicester will, however, revise their bonus structure at the end of this season as they are all set to play in the Champions League.
