Pick up at Thai Japan Stadium

Thai Japan stadium is a bit far from train station. Relatively, BTS Victory monument or ARL Ratchaprarop station is near to reach. Sorry I didn’t check which bus goes, you can check Viabus apps if needed.

Anyway, for me I love to walk a bit around 2km to the pick up point so I did from ARL Ratchaprarop station.

Cat stuck on the window, haha.

Be very careful walking on overpass for electric wires in Bangkok.

Big national election comes next month. During election campaign time, you will see candidates’ poster with number over the nation anywhere.

Please walk carefully on the road with no lights. but cars coming so fast to enter highway in this area.

Hmm, I do not know this kind of bus. It seems this bus operates from Victory monument to Thai Japan stadium🤔

Here comes Thai Japan stadium! Bangkok United before used this stadium as home field.

I reached 20 minutes earlier at the gate 3 of Thai Japan stadium. Staff was already standby at the gate and checked my name to verify.

Bus came 12:50. Team staff confirmed all 14 passengers hopped in bus already so it departed earlier at 13:05 towards Thammasart University.

Nicely painted vivid red color bus.

It was very comfortable free air-conditioned bus ride on the way. Even USB charging port is installed under armrest.

USB port under armrest.

While bus goes on highway road, staff explained today’s itinerary in Thai. She said total 85 person will join today so one more bus will be added at next pick up point. If ever I understand correctly what she said, haha.

And game ticket fee for me 130THB was collected on the bus.

At 13:45 bus already passed beyond Thammasart University, 55. It seems I mis-umderstood, this bus maybe goes directly to Suphanburi privince not picking up other passengers at Thammasart.

13:56, Bus stops at PTT gas station Bang pa-in on the way. Staff said we were waiting here for bus comes from Thammasart Univ…. maybe she said, haha in Thai language.

I got off from bus for toilet and coffee at Seven eleven but outside was really hot under scorching sunshine! So I came back to bus in very quick and just wait.

Other passengers got off too to get their stomach full.

14:29 another bus arrived at gas station. All passengers asked to come out to take photo shot in one group 555.
During stop at gas station, water and snacks were distributed to all guests. Again, this trip is completely free so how nice of their service by True Bangkok United😋😉
14:43 bus restarted to Suphanburi province. Maybe we will visit at temple on the way to stadium? as staff announced.
Running on rural areas…

Suphanburi Stadium

15:55, finally we reached Suphanburi stadium😉😉 We never stops at temple, haha.
Main stand side to welcome players both team. Tickets are also sold at booth.
True Bangkok United players came soon as we moved to main stand side. I was just watching in a distance to avoid heat from sunshine. hehe.
Police Tero F.C. players comes with normal long distance bus… They do not have team bus🤔🤔?
Players kindly take photo with fans.
Got ticket from Bangkok United staff at back stand. Since I have much time before kick off, I spent walking around the stadium.
Suphanburi F.C. players photo.
Under the back stand seats, they have offices? to manage operation of stadium.
Many food stalls come to serve to fans.
Thai national team attires for sale.
Even Bangkok united official shop truck comes to the stadium. Felt how dedicated their team to win this FA cup title.
Ok, let’s finish toilet before entering the stadium but which one for me??🤔
Main stand side does only have beer and drink service.
I found another toilet area besides back stand seats where it clearly shows which I should enter haha.
Inside toilet area.
Don’t forget to bring small toilet paper when visiting sports stadium in Thailand. Normally paper is not installed.
I do not know why but we aren’t allowed to enter until 23 minutes left before kick off time. When entered, warming up was almost done then players were heading back to locker room for preparation.
At the entrance, security staff scans code on the ticket then checks inside the bags.
Views from back stand. Main stand and right behind goal area has roof to block sunlight and rain.
Left side behind goal with big screen. Bangkok United supporter team sits on this side.
Right side zone. We had buffer zone between Police Tero supporters area and police officer was standby.
With Thai football anthem song, players come to the field.
Standing to show respect to royal family in Thai.

Kick off

First VAR moment for Bangkok United! Unfortunately, penalty kick was not given.
No.18 Thitiphan scored first by header!!
Celebration by Bangkok United.
Police Tero F.C. played very rough at this game, play was disrupted several time to treat injured Bangkok members.
Saw the moment to almost start to fight due to hard attack by Police Tero.
2nd half started. It was my mistake to choose seat next to aisle. People come in and block my eyesight many times, 55.
Red card was given to Police Tero defender and penalty kick offered to Bangkok United!! Referee deemed Police Tero layer handling the ball.
Again VAR reversed the judge by referee!! Penalty kick chance was stripped 2 times from Bangkok United F.C..
72′ header by No.29 Willen!!
 Monitor was damaged by heat outside??
Goal more by No. 93 Mahmoud!!
2nd goal by No. 29 Willen at 84′.
Game over, win by Bangkok United 4 – 0 Police Tero. This match card happened in 5 days later for Thai Revo league cup and Bangkok United again wins by 4 goals.
Match highlight
Once the game is done, I came back to the bus soon but no other guests nor staff came back, seems that they are sending off players bus maybe??.
I was just waiting inside bus checking another semi final match progress. As expected, Buriram United wins so final will be Bangkok United vs. Buriram United on 28th May.

Going back to Bangkok

Bus departed from stadium at 20:48.
Thank you so much for great care by Bangkok United. Snacks again.
On the way back, I was sleeping thoroughly. When woke up, bus stopped at Yaek Nonthaburi MRT station to drop 2 people. After that, Bus also drops other passengers at Kasetsart University and MRT Lat Phrao then came back to Thai Japan stadium at 22:40.
I would like to thank again to Bangkok United F.C. team, staff and bus driver for providing such nice trip for FREE!. It was enjoyable and very comfortable during whole trip. I want to join again if they offer next.
Since it was already so dark outside, I did not dare to walk back to Airport rail link station but took bus nearby stop from the stadium. Even few hundred meters walk, I feel so scared, there might be dogs around.
Bus No, 13, 54 and 73 goes to ARL Ratchaprarop station and BTS Chit rom station.
I took Bus No. 54 for 8 THB only. Less than 10 minutes ride to Airport rail link station.
Ok, that’s all for my trip experience! As far as I know, Big football club such as Buriram United, Bangkok United and BG Pathum United arrange away trip or game trip in neutral location so please check their official Facebook or Instagram page to know latest info.
I will update again if I have chance to join the trip by football team.
See ya!
