NO FEAR! Thai League to proceed despite concern over coronavirus

The Football Association of Thailand (FAT) has informed that the fixtures of Thai League will go ahead as scheduled despite the looming threat of the coronavirus outbreak.

However, the FA Thailand has instructed the Thai clubs to take proper measures to screen the supporters attending the matches and also added that the league could be halted if the situation worsens in the country.

The spread of coronavirus has forced disruption in footballing events around the globe including in Korea Republic, Japan, Vietnam and Italy. A string of AFC Champions League 2020 fixtures have also been postponed by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as well.

FAT added that any Thai League matches taking place in “high risk areas” will be played behind closed doors.

“We are ready to handle the situation and take whatever action that is needed, but our approach won’t be much different from the one followed by K League and J.League. For the time being, all the league matches will proceed as scheduled,” said FAT deputy secretary-general Patit Supaphong.
