Special no-fun football for Thai-Aussie World Cup qualifier.

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Special no-fun football for Thai-Aussie World Cup qualifier.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Oct 23, 2016 5:26 pm

Buy your tickets now for the world's most sober football match. No alcohol, no singing, no laughing, no cheering for your team, and you must wear black,white or grey. And no joy allowed at all, not even a little bit. This match will be a real crowd-puller with plane-loads of Aussies flying over for the party. Hurry, hurry, while there are still seats available.

Australia and Thailand ban chanting at World Cup qualifier
21 October 2016
Football officials from Thailand and Australia have banned chanting at next month's World Cup qualifying match out of respect for the late Thai king.

Football associations in the two countries have also said fans should wear black, grey, or white.

Thais are observing a year-long period of national mourning after the death last week of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 88, who reigned for 70 years.

People in Thailand have been asked to wear black and avoid "joyful events".

The Football Association of Thailand had tried to move the 15 November match, but the Australian side asked for the game to go ahead.

In a statement on its website, Football Federation Australia said banners, flags, and megaphones would be banned and "joyful activities" were "strictly prohibited both inside the stadium and surrounding areas"...

Will they be allowed to whisper, "Ozzy, Ozzy, Ozzy, Oy, Oy, Oy"?
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

You wouldn't have a had a chance to get tickets now anyway, they were sold as a 6 match package and were gone within a couple of hours before the first game. Our clubs supporters did a banner for the qualifiers that stretched from one end of our home ground to the other, they arrived 4 hours before the game to put it in place around the Curva Sud of Rajamangala Stadium and it was some sight when they got it moving pre kick off. It's a really unfortunate sideline to the main event as there has been a fantastic buzz around the national team making it this far. It will be a totally surreal experience and I feel very sorry for my fellow fans to whom it means a lot.

And the Aussies could hop up and down making little tsk-tsk 'Skippy the bush kangaroo' noises to encourage their team. ;)

Maybe they were cheering after all. Sounds like it was an exciting match. :Bravo:

Thais hold off Aussies to draw 2-2
In an emotional Tuesday evening, Thailand put up a great fight to draw 2-2 with Australia in a World Cup qualifier at Rajamangala National Stadium.

It was one of Thailand's best results in recent memory and gave them their first point in Group B of Asia's third qualifying round for the 2018 World Cup.
On the other hand, the result shattered the Socceroos' hopes of advancing to the 2018 finals...

They played like champs and done their nation proud, wanted itmore than the Aussies. Crowd was one of the best I've heard.
Disagree with shattering our hopes of qualifying, 5 games played from 10 now and we are 1 point behind first place, 3 of the remaining 5 are at home.
