The Portcast #18: Thai Football Through a Foreign Lens


Tom and James talk about all the ways in which Thai football is experienced by foreign fans.

Are you the sort of fan who just turns up at the stadium and asks who’s playing?

Do you get your news from the newspaper?

Do you follow the official website or a fan-made equivalent?

Or are you following social media to find out what’s going on?

We cover all these areas and more, analyzing what’s good and what could be better in Thai football through a foreign lens.

As always, let us know if there’s anything else you want us to talk about, or if you would like to appear on the podcast as a guest.
