A 3-0 victory in the second leg helped Thailand turn the tide against Malaysia to win with a total score of 3-1 after losing 0-1 in the first leg. This result brings Thailand to meet Vietnam in the AFF Cup 2022 championship match. Vietnam vs Thailand is considered the dream final of the tournament.
As such, they will play the first leg in Vietnam (January 13) before returning home to play the second leg final on the evening of January 16. And recently, the Thai Football Federation has also chosen a stadium for the War Elephants, which is Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani province. This is also the field that War Elephants have used since the beginning of the tournament.
Previously, FAT wanted to change the pitch because Thammasat only had a capacity of 25,000 seats. The target FAT targets is the Rajamangala football field with a capacity of up to nearly 50,000 seats, nearly double. This intention has been reported by FAT to AFF and BTC AFF Cup 2022.
However, that prospect could not come true when the Rajamangala Stadium BTC reported that the grass was not enough to hold football matches according to the standards of the AFF Cup 2022. The reason comes from how long the Rajamangala field has been excepted. The football organization is also a familiar place for international music and entertainment events with top singers or groups such as BTS, BlackPink…
According to the latest information, the group New Jeans (Korea) had a huge international live show in Rajamangala on January 7, as part of a world tour. Tens of thousands of fans and stage equipment made Rajamangala’s grass surface shriveled, much worse than My Dinh, unable to guarantee a top match.
That is why they did not choose this field for Mr. Polking’s teachers and students in the upcoming final second leg. This is considered a significant disadvantage of the Thai team when previously Rajamangala Stadium was still considered a symbol of football in the Golden Temple.
In addition, with a capacity of up to nearly 50,000 seats, this football field also creates an extremely passionate atmosphere of cheering that can make the visiting teams who have been here ‘terrified’.
