Buri the Hatchet! Port & Buriram Fans’ Meetup, Saturday 11 March


Port face their toughest home test of the season this Saturday (19:00) when Isaan giants Buriram come to the PAT. Apart from Port, no other Thai league team has so many farang supporters, so our top boy Keith Wright got in touch with their firm to arrange a pre-match rumble.

Not, I should add, for the purposes of fisticuffs, but for beers, bantz and bonhomie, and probably saying nasty things about Muangthong. The meetup starts from 16:00 at The Sandpit’s official watering hole The Sportsman, on Sukhumvit soi 13, where all in attendance will get special beer prices and 10% discount on food & drinks.

We look forward to seeing you there on Saturday, followed by a great game at the PAT – hopefully more enjoyable than Buriram’s last visit in 2015…
