BANGKOK (26 Oct 2018) – Thailand’s legendary defensive midfielder Tanaboon Kesarat (main pix) and the nation’s rising star Supachai Jaided will be the star attractions when the AFF Suzuki Cup Trophy Tour arrives in Bangkok this coming Sunday, 28 October 2018.
The players and the famous trophy will be at the Beacon Zone, Central World, Bangkok, from 3.30pm onwards, where fans will get a fantastic opportunity to take photos with two of the country’s finest players.
Tanaboon, aged 25 years old, and Supachai are part of the squad that will attempt to win this year’s AFF Suzuki Cup for the third time in a row – a feat that has not been achieved before.
Bangkok Glass player Tanaboon played in the past two AFF Suzuki Cups – in 2014 and 2016 – while Supachai, aged just 19, is in the competition’s squad for the first time.
Supachai has been a key player in an impressive Buriram side that’s won back-to-back domestic titles, and is one of the Thailand’s most gifted youngsters.
The first matches of the AFF Suzuki Cup kick-off on November 8 but in the lead-up to the tournament the trophy has been touring the region.
The trophy has already made stops in Cambodia and Myanmar, while it visits Manila tomorrow before heading to Bangkok on Sunday. Next week it will be in Hanoi and Jakarta.
Thailand have claimed the AFF Suzuki Cup a record five times, so the trophy will feel at home on Sunday in The Kingdom.
