In spite of the poor start for SCG Muangthong United in 2019, the fans are coming out in numbers to give their support. This is what it means to be a true fan, you stand behind the team to show you're there with them in times of trouble.
Watching a match at the SCG Stadium means you are taking in one of the best football experiences the league has to offer. The SCG Stadium is built for football, and resembles stadiums you might see in some English leagues. There's no running track, and the seating hugs all four touch lines.
Said Phil Williams, a long term expatriate fan of Thai football, "It really was the closest I've experienced to an English match atmosphere. It reminded me of being at one of the better National League stadiums.”
For foreign fans, it's also a chance to experience a side of Thai culture they may not have seen before, while at the same time feeding their love of football. Teams like Muangthong have a passionate ULTRA FANS section, with drums and cheering throughout the match.
But it's friendly, and it is common to see home and away supporters mixing together about the stadium.
The atmosphere is also one of excitement and fun with halftime give-aways, live video on the big screen, and plenty of food and drink options. For many fans it's also a family experience.
Kevin Davy, from the U.K., took the chance for some father-daughter time at the stadium, quoting later on Facebook, "I caught our local team tonight for a game. Fun time."
