According to the Bangkok Post the King's Cup could well be held in Phuket. As well as the hosts it will feature North Korea, Lebanon and Denmark...though what type of Denmark I don't know.


Phuket will host the 38th King's Cup next month, with Thailand, Lebanon, Denmark and North Korea set to fight for the trophy on the southern island.

The competition takes place January 21-23 and Thailand will open against Lebanon.
Phuket governor Dr Preecha Ruanchan said the island will be happy to be hold the competition.
"Phuket is ready to be the host," he said.

"We hosted AFF Suzuki Cup games three weeks ago so there won't be any problems with the stadium. "We want to use the King's Cup to help boost confidence in the tourism sector of the country.

"In the past, the country has faced many problems - especially political - and this has affected Phuket a lot.

"Hopefully this tournament will help the province attract tourists to Phuket."
Channel 7 will televise Thailand's matches and will also broadcast the final.


January 21: Denmark v North Korea (4.30pm); Thailand v Lebanon (7pm).
January 23: 3rd place play-off (4.30pm); Final (7pm).
