The Portcast #17: Around Thailand in 16 Stadiums

Tom and Tim take a virtual tour of Thailand, reviewing T1’s 16 stadiums and a few other particularly memorable venues. Along the way we give them our ratings, as well as telling some stories from our numerous away days.

From the Ballardian wastelands of Chaeng Wattana to the picturesque lakes of Sukhothai, we have experienced the good, the bad and the unsanitary.


If you or someone you know is thinking about making a trip to watch Thai football for the first time, this is a must-listen!

    Great podcast! Port will always be the best Bangkok team but it would be great to see one of the many “Bangkok Area” teams play in the centre of the city. I would love to see Bangkok Utd move to Thephasadin Stadium – it’s small but probably just about big enough for their fans and in a fantastic location.

    Thoughts for another podcast – maybe a “Where are they now?” podcast looking at ex-Port players – those who went on to bigger & brighter things, those who flopped, and those who vanished.

    I’ve never been to Bangkok & never been to Thailand but stumbled across Port by chance thanks to the magic of the internet, and soon fell in love with the club thanks to the fantastic content on The Sandpit. I hope to experience the magic of the PAT one day even though I gather the new seats have ruined it a bit… Keep up the good work!

      Great to hear you’re enjoying our content, William.
      That’s certainly an idea, I wrote an article looking at where are former foreign strikers and midfielders ended up a few years back, so a lot of the leg work is done already, although I’m sure the active players have kept moving around since.
      Hope to see you in Bkk one day, although it won’t be any time soon the way things are going!
