After the well publicized events of last week, Chiang Mai Fc are at home again this week, with Rayong being the visitors at the 700 years stadium.

In last weeks game against leaders Trat, the game was heading for a 1-1 draw when in the 92nd minute Chiang Mai scored what should have been the winning goal, and with obviously delight players, and management team celebrated, some players ran to the fans also to share the joy. While the celebrations were taking place and indeed while players were not on the pitch and certainly in no position to restart, the referee for some unknown reason blew for the kick-off with Trat  then running up field almost unopposed and scoring an equalizer, the ref immediately blew the final whistle.

The scenes after were not good, with players fans and officials all heading for the referee to find out what the hell he had kick-off in such a circumstance for. The officials seem to be struck in the face with flying objects and military police escorted him off the field. In an emergency meeting of the Thai FA this week, the decision to replay the game was made and the referee suspended for an uncertain amount games. The game being replayed was a little bit of justice for Chiang Mai but a 2-1 win would have helped more.


This weeks game starts the return legs of fixtures, with Chiang Mai hosting Rayong FC at the 700 yrs. This opposite fixture was the first game of the play-offs with Chiang Mai losing 3-2 after almost making a comeback from 3-0 down, this game also had a bit of refereeing controversy, with the Ref blowing 3 minutes early in the game and both teams needed to come back on the field after being off the pitch at the supposedly end of the game.

Rayong are top of the play-off group with 10 points and will fancy their chances but with all the things Chiang Mai have been through in the past few weeks then a fighting display by the tigers may see them record their second win off the campaign which could give them the much needed lift.


The game kicks of at 6pm and as usual merchandise and refreshments are available outside the ground and for pre match drinks and banter the Red Lion Pub will have some Chiang Mai supporters going to the game and a ride in one of the cars is usually available.
