Thai Public Channels To Screen FIFA World Cup For Free | News by Samui TimesThe Sports Authority of Thailand announced Thursday that public TV channels would retransmit the 2018 football FIFA World Cup for free, after the government cooperated with the private sector to secure the event’s broadcasting rights.

Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan – also the president of the National Olympic Committee – will hold a press conference on the matter Monday at his official residence.
