In case of force majeure, Chairman of the Thai Football Federation (FAT) Somyot is willing to give this organization an interest-free loan.

As information, the Thai Football Federation has fallen into a staggering situation when the budget shortage is serious. This results the delayed tournaments and the Thai team having no money to prepare for the upcoming international tournaments.

Mr. Somyot Poompanmuang said in an interview: "I met Mr. Aiyawat Srivaddhanaprabha, CEO of King Power Group (which owns Leicester City club) to talk about Thai football situation.

Currently FAT is short of money to organize competitions including Thailand. Mr. Aiwat promised not to abandon Thai football and will help, but how will be detailed later.

When asked if he would take his money to help FAT, the Chairman did not hesitate: "It is a matter of my plan.

In case I can't find help because in the past, I used family money to lend FAT to solve work. I also went to talk to my friends and they found people who will help the Thai football industry, to continue to grow.

It is expected that the Thai League will return next September, while Thailand will focus earlier this month. However, Nishino found it difficult to return to Thailand because there was no entry flight from Japan. The Thai Football Federation had to ask the Government for permission to allow Mr. Nishino to enter as a special case.
