Crystal Balls 2019: Chiang Mai FC

  In our latest Crystal Balls piece, we welcome new boys Chiang Mai FC to the wonderful world of T1. Yes, Thailand’s second city finally has a team in the top flight, so we asked Chiang Mai fan Richard Keyworth (who runs Chiang Mai FC English Fanzine) for his thoughts on their debut season…

Sandpit Away Days 2019: Chonburi

  Port travel down the eastern seaboard to Chonburi on Friday 8 May, and The Sandpit is, as usual, organising a fleet (one or two) of minivans for the occasion. We’ve already filled one van so if we get a few more signups we’ll be able to take two. Vans will leave from Pattana School […]

Slumdogs vs Millionaires: Port Face PTT Rayong in Friendly
