| BANGKOK (4 Feb 2010) – Buriram PEA chairman Newin Chidchob has fostered big ambition for his club since taking over the 2008 Thai Premier League champions then known as Provincial Electricity Authority.
Newin said that he plans to have world class players in his club where he hopes that they will emulate the success of Liverpool and Manchester United in England.
Nicknamed the Thunder Castle, Buriram PEA have been tasked with becoming one of the top four teams in the Thai Premier League in three years.
And towards realising his dream, Newin has promised to give his Thai Premier League side 100,000 baht for each goal they score in the upcoming campaign.
“We are proud to unveil Buriram PEA as the team for Buri Ram people,” said Newin.
“In England, there are strong teams outside the capital of London particularly Manchester United and Liverpool. I will try to make our team become like the two teams.
“Our ultimate goal is for the team to win the Thai league title and other Cup competitions.”
Newin also unveiled plans to build the team’s 500 million baht new stadium which can hold 24,000 people. There will also be a football academy and a training camp with top class facilities.
“I am doing this because I love football. I am not doing this for fun,” he said.
