Thailand Pattaya / Jomtien Can't Post or Reply Privately

Wife and I are going to Thailand in the near future and was wondering if anyone ahd any experience of watching games in either Pattaya or Jomtien, and any pitfalls we might possibly encounter, or are the games generally incident free for tourists?

Depends when you are going, after this weekend the season is over until mid February. Fixtures will be available around 29th/30th December.

Football in Thailand is hassle free, games typically around 100 baht. Not many sides in the Pattaya area, Pattaya United in Division One and Chonburi in the Prem.

Even if you want to travel, the 3 sides based in Rayong play in the middle of nowhere, Siam Navy may be easy to get to in Sattahip, sadly no idea how to get any of them. Other than that, aside from Chachoengsao, nothing else within 100km.

Pattaya is sadly at the bottom of places I would like to ever revisit, as a place in Thailand but all down to personal preference of course.

I wholeheartedly agree with you about Pattaya and it's undesirability. Our circumstances, unfortunately, are determined by visiting my late brother's widow who lives over the hill from there in between Pattaya and Jomtien Beach. It's actullay an oasis of sanity inbetween two rather seedy resorts and we enjoy it there, it being quiet. Definitely want to take in a game sometime so thanks for the advice, much appreciated.

Does anyone know of what happens in their off-season? E.g. do the usually have PSFs and when would these be? Or is there usually touring sides over? Or off-season cup comps? I'm looking at going over Xmas so it would be great to catch something, but I'm aware the regular season dates don't tie up with this

There are friendlies in December and January from memory. The hard bit is finding advanced notice. I follow a plethora of different Twitter accounts and even then info can be a bit last minute.

Re football in Pattaya.

Pattaya United have moved just south of Bangkok in a MK Dons type move and are now called Samut Prakarn City.

Their old Nong Prue home ground is now used by Pattaya Discovery United in the 4th tier Osmin League East Region.

Fixtures here:
