Thai Football

As part of this year's Jakarta Casual Football Tour we're looking at taking in a couple of games in Thailand. One will be the World Cup Qualifier between Thailand and Japan while the second game will be a Thai Premier League fixture.

16 teams make up the TPL with two of them, Chonburi and Krung Thai Bank, taking part in this season's AFC Champions League.

Looking at the dates when I will be in and around Bangkok there are a couple of obvious fixtures. Last season's champions Chonburi, who famously beat Melbourne Victory last week in the ACL, travel to Bangkok to play Customs.

Runners up Krung Thai Bank, who still have some of my money, play Osotsapa in Klong Chan while BEC Tero, a club with strong ties to the Arsenal, host highflyers TOT

I've deliberately not been covering the Thai football on this blog as at the moment, while the Indonesian Liga is in deep hibernation, as the Singapore and Malaysian stuff keeps me busy enough but for the next Thai season I hope to add it to my coverage. It makes geographic sense and also hopefully would provide an excuse for quick jaunts to Bangkok!
