With only six days left to go it is looking like the Thai’s will have little choice other than to watch the 2014 world cup at home, at a friend’s house on in Phuket, Samui or Pattaya where the curfew has been lifted.
After the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) lifted the curfew in the heavily tourist populated areas football fans were hopeful they would also get a break and the curfew would be eased during the World Cup held in Brazil.
The first match will kick off at 5pm in Sao Paolo between Brazil and Croatia, 2am on Friday morning in Thailand. During the one month long tournament the earliest match will start at 1pm in Brazil, 11am in Thailand, only one hour before the curfew kicks in at midnight until 4am.
The NCPO has yet to consider easing the curfew for the world cup, spokesman Winthai Suwaree brought down fans hopes yesterday by saying that the competition is not the only factor to be considered, and the junta also had to look at security concerns when thinking about the curfew.
With the curfew people return home early and spend a lot more time with their families said Col Winthai who said that although the current situation seems calm there is no telling what is around the corner and added that football fans could watch the matches at home with their families.
