FA Cup Final Ticket Info Released

 

The long, arduous wait for FA Cup Final tickets to go on sale is apparently nearly over, with a combination of information from the Thai FA and Thai Ticket Major suggesting that tickets will be on sale starting from 10:00 on Monday 21st October.

9,000 capacity all-seated Leo stadium was announced as the venue a few days ago, before a brief panic ensued when Thai Ticket Major pulled the event info and we all thought ‘here we go again.’ Now with all signs pointing towards Pathum Thani and the information online showing the zones and prices of tickets, we’re pretty sure that we’re all set.

 

 

Tickets are evenly split between Port and Ratchaburi fans, with Port fans occupying zones W3 (150 baht), W6 (100 baht) and S (80 baht).

Follow this link to buy tickets online, or alternatively buy directly from a Major outlet near you. You’ll probably need to be pretty quick, with far more Port fans expected to turn up than there are tickets available in the Port zones.

 

 

Happy hunting, and we’ll see you in Pathum Thani!

 

FA Cup Final Moved to Leo Stadium

 

The Thai FA have upped the stakes in their quest to make as much of a mess as possible of the FA Cup Final, today announcing that the game will be moved from Army Stadium to BG Pathum Thani’s Leo Stadium. Yes, the Chang FA Cup Final will be held at Leo Stadium. Whatever will we drink?

If you’ve been frantically searching Wikipedia for details on the new location, don’t believe your lying eyes. Leo Stadium did used to have a capacity of roughly 16,000, but since renovations changed it to an all-seater stadium that capacity is now just 9,000. There’s no word on exactly how much the allocations will be, but you can be sure that with such a small capacity, a big chunk of Port fans will not be sitting in the Port ends.

The one thing the Thai FA haven’t yet managed to muck up is Port’s opponents, though. We’re still playing Ratchaburi, and that means we’re still big old favourites to lift the cup, and playing in front of 3 stands and a small forest in Pathum Thani doesn’t change that.

The relocation gives us a chance to revisit a watering hole we haven’t seen in more than a year; The Rabbit Bar had better stock up, because Port fans are coming and we’re thirsty.

Now that we’ve had our stadium moved, we can expect tickets to be on sale any day now. although of course there’s still no official word on when. We’re keeping our ears to the ground, and we advise you to do the same. See you in Pathum Thani on November 2nd!
