Chen – a Tennis staff member of Laguna Beach Resort Phuket
“Phuket has it own football team, FC Phuket or the ‘South Sea Kirins’ who are now the champions of the Thailand AIS Regional League Division 2 – the southern regional football league. A lot of Phuket people became fans of FC Phuket, like me. I always go to cheer my team whenever there is a match against its competitors. The atmosphere in the stadium is very fun and exciting, so come along to Phuket to cheer them too.”
In the 2009 southern regional tournament, there were not many fans cheering the team and FC Phuket ranked very low at the end of the season. Later the team has been well supported by many organizations, especially from MuangThong United, the number 1 club team in Thailand. Consequently, FC Phuket won the southern regional league in 2010.
Apart from the talented players, FC Phuket gets ‘The Hulk’, an American green hero mascot, who is used to represent the wonderful fans, to cheer them against the competitors at every match.
