Thailand: local football team
Whilst visiting Thailand and SouthEast Asia, a group of friends living in Chiang Mai asked me to join them at a local football match. This was an opportunity too good to miss!
The game was a draw at 1-1 with both teams fighting hard for the win but, to no avail. The atmosphere was fantastic, with the home crowd of Chiang Mai FC supporting their team with vigour, playing drums, trumpets and cheering throughout. After the final whistle, both teams walked around the entire running track surrounding the pitch showing their appreciation of the crowds.
Overall a fantastic testament to sporting good will, fun and enthusiasm for the the game of football.
