It seems that Zense Entertainment is the next rightsholder of Thai football. They have offered 12 billion baht for 8 seasons. That's 500 million more than True each season. It's not known if games will be shown on TV, YouTube, websites or Facebook.

It is reported that the league will resume sometime in the period of August 12-21 and games to be played every 3 days, with breaks only for FIFA-days. The season will end on October 25.

The FAT president has confirmed (again) that the season will restart on September 12 and end in May next year. True will only broadcast the games until October 25, and clubs will only be paid for the number of matches played at that time.

So it least, at last it's all crystal clear. The TPL will start the season in historically the wettest month of the year in competition with the strongest european league competitions I'm sure it will go well.

Will that be in an empty Stadium TW ? Or with a masked crowd . . .

It will be at their new training facility. I assume fans can just turn up and watch. Usually a couple of hundred fans at these friendlies.

Hi TW thanks. Any idea when the fixtures will be published ? I guess they'll continue in the previous sequence so I can get off to Trat  ;D

No fixture details provided yet Roger. It would be too logical for FAT to just let them continue in original order!!
