The pitch and behind the scenes

"It's a wriggler this one!"

The pitch at The Thunderdome has been a focal point for everyone from Bryan Robson to the lady selling somtam outside during the last few weeks. During the Rajpracha Vs Loei City game, I was convinced someone would suffer a serious injury on the water-logged surface. (I was relieved to be proven wrong about that, but it's still a risk).

And while I'm mentioning the bits I got wrong, I wrongly stated a new pitch had been laid down after the final Muangthong game of the season. The correct situation is this: a new pitch has been ordered. When 'installed' the contractors will also do some digging to implement a drainage system at the stadium. It's a big job and will be a race against time to be ready for the new season.

As previously mentioned, Robert and Co. at the club have a lot going on behind the scenes as they aim to stay at the forefront of the Thai football explosion. Stay tuned.

  1. Hi Greg, about the pitch they just improve the drainage for this season. I read it somewhere that they're going to ripped the old turf out then fully rebuilt it at the end of this season.

    keep up the good work mate
