Thai youth teams in Kuala Lumpur (February 09, 2007)



Kuala Lumpur will this weekend play host to the 20th annual Southeast Asia Youth Football Tournament. Thailand will be represented at U13 and U15 levels by players selected from the Bangkok Soccer League (based at Bangkok Patana School) and North Bangkok Soccer League (based at the International School of Bangkok).

These two clubs attract expatriate and international school players from all over the city, and these combined squads represent the top players in the clubs.

The teams will travel to KL hoping to bring back the trophies for Thailand after a few years absence.

The tournament comprises teams from Bangkok, KL, Jakarta and Singapore and it represents probably the highest level of competition available for these players.

The Bangkok teams participation has been made possible this year by the support of Kelloggs and Tony the Tiger.
