Football

 

Apologies to any North American readers but this page is wholly concerned with the original game of football, which, strangely enough, is largely played with the feet rather than the hands, unlike the gridiron version. As the weeks and months go by we will attempt to bring as much useful (and sometimes not) information about the ‘beautiful game’, but in particular the major European leagues and international competitions.

There is also coverage of the local professional team, Hua Hin City, and information about football in Thailand, which you can find by clicking the relevant links to the left.

Fantasy Football is also included in this section – AWOL runs a league in the official English Premier League game , The AWOL Challenge. Television coverage of the English Premier League is extensive in Thailand, and many of the foreigners who have settled here, and Thais, follow this league avidly. Coverage of other European leagues is also available but not as widely followed.
