Thai Japanese Stadium, Din Daeng, Bangkok

The Thai Japanese Stadium is situated fairly centrally in Din Daeng yet Bangkok United, formerly known as Bangkok University, struggled to fill the stadium as they struggled to make any kind of impact a lot of money spent trying to brand the team as THE team of Bangkok. Not sure if the half time entertainment helped or not!

Action from Bangkok United v Bangkok Glass during the Thai Premier League 2010 can be found on Jakarta Casual TV.



Leo Stadium, Pathum Thani

Half an impressive looking stadium in Pathum Thani, just north of Bangkok. Bangkok Glass are an ambitious, privately owned team that took over from the more established Krung Thai Bank.

Full directions to the stadium can be found at an English language website devoted to Bangkok Glass.

Action from a Thai Premier League 2010 game between Bangkok Glass and TTM Phichit can be found on Jakarta Casual TV while an interview with an English fan of the team can be found here.



Tugu Stadium, Jakarta

Getting here by public transport is a pain in the arse. Just take a taxi. Any Blue Bird driver should know the Tugu area, relatively industrial and down to earth. Spartan stadium with nothing much in the area. Old school lower division English style stadium if you like.

Was used by Persitara North Jakarta a few years back, it's their spiritual home, but while they were in the Indonesia Super League they played elsewhere. Now they are in the second tier they may well be using it again.

Their fans are known as NJ Mania and despite being small in number they can kick up quite a racket.



Jurong Stadium, Singapore

Must admit don't know too much about this stadium in the western suburbs. Not being used by the SLeague at the moment.



Bedok Stadium, Singapore

Bedok Stadium lies midway between the MRT stations of Tanah Merah and, umm, Bedok! Also plenty of buses run along the main road back into the centre of Singapore.

As with most Singapore stadiums it's a sports stadium open to the public except on match days. One main stand with some benches along the opposite side of the field and open behind both goals



Woodlands Stadium, Singapore

Woodlands Stadium is home to a small but passionate band of Woodlands Rams supporters

The MRT and highrise in the background makes for a totally Singaporean backdrop to the stadium.
Nearest MRT station is, oddly enough, Woodlands!
