T1 Fixtures Out Now!


As good as their word, the FAT released the 2019 T1 fixture list – FOR THE WHOLE SEASON – yesterday. According to the FAT’s Benjamin Tan, this season the league will follow FIFA breaks only, so there will be no repeat of the 3-5 week breaks that have blighted recent seasons and brought no benefit to the national team whatsoever. How accurate this is remains to be seen – it is highly unlikely that the list will remain intact until season’s end – but let’s hope for a season free of long hiatuses.

Port kick off their season with a trip to Chiang Rai on 24 February. Given that our last visit there involved a red card, your Sandpit editor being almost decapitated by a flying plastic seat, and Port’s tallest and shortest players ‘redecorating’ the away dressing room, it should be a feisty affair as Port’s expensively-assembled side come up against the T1 masters of shithousery. Port’s first home game is a week later against Ratchaburi, followed by games against Chonburi, PTT, Sukhothai, Trat and Prachuap. Indeed, Port don’t face any of the likely title contenders until 20 April (away to the auld enemy Muangthong), giving them the chance to build up some early season momentum.

The list is currently only available in Thai but Dominick has very kindly translated it for us.
