Bangkok might be the most popular city in South East Asia. People all over the world are coming to Bangkok frequently, some just for holiday and other are living in Bangkok for quite a long time. If you have ever felt like playing football / soccer in Bangkok, but you had no idea where to play this article will help you.
It is one of the most popular sports in Thailand. Especially the English Premier League and Teams like Liverpool FC and Manchester United are having lots of fans in Thailand. You will see Thai people wearing shirts of british teams every day. The own national league called Thai Premier League is growing every year. There are some pretty good teams also playing in the AFC Champions League (Asian version of the UEFA Champions League). Buriram United and Muangthong United are one of the best Thai teams.
You will have quite a few options, because there are so many foreigner living in Bangkok. Many of them are football fans and love to play as well. There is a football league for foreigner / expats, but there are also meet ups, which you can easily join. Matches are mostly being played on artificial turfs, because grass is not really convenient during the rainy season. The most football pitches in Bangkok have to be rent, but there are also some public places you can go to play.
There is a sports complex right to the „National Stadium“ BTS Station. It is right next to the huge shopping mall called „MBK“ and some other majors shopping malls like Siam Paragon, Siam Center and Siam Discovery. As the name already says there is a national stadium, where people can enter the stadium and go for a run. No fees or anything like this. You should keep in mind the football pitch is made of real grass and there are some times you might not be allowed to play on the grass, because of the weather or condition of the grass. Check out the signs on or next to the pitch.
Next to the national stadium is also another small pitch with artificial turf, which is entirely free of charge. The opening time is from morning to noon and from afternoon to evening. There are many people on the small pitch playing and practice. You might not find space to play 5vs5, because there are many people, but its a great way to get in touch with some local football enthusiasts. Go and have a look.
There are quite a few football pitches you can rent. The price varies on the place, size of the pitch and what time you gonna play. One popular place is in Thong Lor called Arena 10. The artificial grass is in a great condition and it is very modern. Mostly it is used by some football schools teaching children how to play football. Right next to the Arena 10 are lots of popular bars, clubs and restaurants. Another great place with artificial turfs and lots of pitches is located in Phra Kanong. It is the former Arsenal Football School, but now known as PKFC Soccer Schools located at Soi 21. They got 5vs5 pitches and also 7vs7 and 11vs11 pitches. To make a booking you can directly contact them. Both of them are outdoor, but they have a roof, so don’t worry about any heavy rain or a wet pitch.
You will find lots of groups and Facebook pages gathering together football player and fans in Bangkok. They held meet ups and matches every week. Simply join the group or ask on the Facebook page for more details. Some platforms like Evite are also used to organize meet ups. Here is one Facebook page organizing meet ups at least twice a week. 18 players are going to meet up and three times are being formed. The price for two hours is 200 baht. Keep in mind the price can be higher, when there are less people. The entire price is just to pay the rent for the pitch. In weekdays the time of the meet up can be pretty late, because of the working time, but on weekend you can expect to play in afternoon.
Temperatures in Bangkok can be really high, but what bothers the most when playing football in Bangkok is the humidity. Keep in mind to drink a lot. I mean really a lot. Most of the places have a place where you can buy drinks. You will sweat like you have never before just within a few minutes of playing. It can be a great method on how to lose weight playing football, but you should be mentally and phyiscally prepared. Since it is outdoor you will feel all the humidity. Especially player coming from Europe or other countries, which doesn’t have such extreme conditions should be careful when playing.
When it comes to playing football everyone has a different style. Some like to play beautiful, others prefer to do only the necessary things. Of course it also depends on your position.

When it comes to playing football everyone has a different style. Some like to play beautiful, others prefer to do only the necessary things. Of course it also depends on your position. However, there are a few things every player, no matter what position, has in common.
Arsène Wenger once said a successful player is built like a house. You need a fundament and then you gonna built more and more on this fundament. What are these basics every successful football player should have?
Skills are the most basic thing someone needs in order to become a good football player. What skills are we talking about? Basically it is about the technique. The first touch, ball control, the technique how to shoot and how to pass the ball, how to dribble the ball and things like this. Everything you do with the ball.
If you have great skills the next step would be to have an outstanding fitness. Your height doesn’t even matter so much, but it matters whats your weight and if you got muscles or not. This also depends on your position. While defender should be tall and strong a winger should be as fast as possible. If you want to become a great football player you need to work on your body. Take care of what you eat. Improve your fitness as much as possible. The same goes for professional football player themselves. Samuel Etoo the legendary striker who played for FC Barcelona and Inter Milan once talked about Ronaldinho in a french tv show. He said after Ronaldinho stopped practicing as hard as before and went to clubbing sometimes his performance became really average. This means even if you got great skills it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have the fitness to show them.
Maybe the most important factor, which will also decide if you will be a professional or a middle class player. Your attitude should be to improve yourself every day and to be the best in every situation. Being ambitious and mentally strong are the key factors when it comes to playing professional football. There will be pressure, there will be pain and there will be hater. Always seek for the best. Even within the best there is a difference. Lets take a look on Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi. Every single year they want to be the best. They are never tired of what they do, but they have only one goal: To be better in the next season. Other player like Ronaldinho or Kaka had 2-3 pretty good years and they even won the Ballon d’Or, but they didn’t keep it up, because they might thought „I won every title already, got a pretty good contract, earn lots of money and now I don’t need to work hard anymore.“ This is meant by „attitude“.
As everywhere in life it takes lots of practice and as sooner you start as better. It doesn’t mean it is impossible to become a professional football player if you are already 18 years or older. Some really successful player like the germans Miroslav Klose, Patrick Owomoyela or the Swiss national player Josip Drmic started their professional football career when they were over 20 years old. It is never too late!

In order to improve your skills we made a small video with two simple exercises you should do as often as possible to get a better technique. You might saw them or even did them before, but they are really helpful actually.
Keep in mind this video is for beginner. If you already play football you might think „This? How can it help me?“ – well, not everyone got skills like you already. However, it is never bad to get an even better technique.
I recommend you to do the exercises before every match or training. Basically its like a warm-up with the ball.
Put the ball between your feet and start passing the ball from the left to the right, from the right to the left and so on. Play the ball with the inside of your foot. If you get into a rhythm you can start to move forwards, backwards or sidewards. If possible keep your head upright so you have the view for your teammates. Do this exercise every day for 15 minutes and you will see a huge improvement of your first touch and ball control.
Put the ball between your feet and play the ball with the sole of your foot from the left to the right etc. Start slowly and increase the pace if you get into a rhythm. You can do it while standing or move forwards while doing it. If you want to see how it works check out this video:
A good first touch and ball control is really important. The exercises above will help you to get a better technique. They are absolutely fundamental if you want to become a better player.

Just moved to Seoul or any other city in South Korea? You are huge football/soccer fan and normally you are playing a few times per week? Or just looking for having some fun on the pitch? Lets talk about where to play the most popular sport ever in Seoul, South Korea.
There are several teams from all over the world in an expat league looking for new members almost all the time. They also got their own league running called „Seoul Sunday Football League“. On their website you can find some information about the league, schedule, teams and also contact information. If you wish to join a team you can easily check out the names of the teams and contact them via social media. Many of them got their own Facebook page.
The first time I came to Seoul I just wanted to take a ball and keep improving myself. However, there are not many public football pitches in Seoul. In Germany, my home country, it is super easy to find a place to play football. Basically every city or village got a football pitch, where you can simply go without any reservation. In Seoul it seems a bit different. For some places you need a reservation for example 5 to 5 pitches. If you are just alone and looking for a playground you can simply go to the universities. Almost all of them got a football pitch. One great pitch is near the Sinchon station inside the Sogang University. The pitch is in a really good condition.
There are a few things you should know tho: If there are any students on the pitch you may won’t be able to play. Also not all pitches have grass on. Only a few got artifical grass, some got real grass, but most of them just got a clay court.
Many Korean guys really love both to watch and also play football. You will find many helpful and nice people playing with you or asking you about football. As everywhere football can really bring the people together. There is also a huge stadium once built for the World Cup 2002. The FC Seoul is playing their home matches in the World Cup stadium. Check it out!
