Friendly Announced; Season Tickets On Sale


Port will be playing fellow T1 (that’s going to take some getting used to) side Nakhon Ratchasima in a warm-up game on January 22nd. It’s the first friendly to be announced this year, but it seems very likely that Port will be playing other friendlies before then, although with this being Thai football they will probably be announced via emoji 5 minutes after kick-off.

The receipt, in all it’s glory

In other news, season tickets are on sale at PAT Stadium from today until January 20th The club shop will be open from 10:00 until 17:00, and you will need to provide your passport and your address. I dropped in earlier today to renew my Titanium Card, and it all went very smoothly. I filled in the online form before I went, which only took a minute because after entering my name all of the details from last season’s application popped straight up. The online form is in Thai, but if you don’t do it before you go that’s absolutely fine. As long as you have your passport and your address the staff will fill it out for you, which only takes a few minutes. Unfortunately, when all is said, done and paid for, you only get a receipt rather than the actual ticket. Hang on to the receipt, and The Sandpit will update you when the club announces that the season tickets are ready to collect. Last season it was after the season started, so don’t be too shocked if the same thing happens again. This is Thailand, after all!


Port FC Announce 2017 Season Tickets


Port FC today announced their 2017 season ticket packages. As you can see in the graphic above, there are 3 tiers available. Champagne-sipping high rollers can go for the Platinum Card at 5000BHT, Singha-supping medium rollers have the Titanium Card at 3000BHT, and Leo-swigging cheapskates such as myself will most likely opt for the Member Card at a very reasonable 1500BHT.


All cards include tickets for all home games (including cup matches), latest club news via SMS (provided you’re an AIS customer, and can read Thai), monthly lucky draw entry and discounts in the club shop. Stump for a Platinum or Titanium card and you’ll get extra goodies such as replica shirts, polo shirts, scarves, car parking, and a seat next to Tommie Duncan in the hallowed halls of Zone A.


Tickets are on sale from 4-20 January, and existing season ticket holders get a 200BHT discount.
