Cheering and chanting banned from Socceroos game against Thailand

Socceroos fans who head over to watch Australia play Thailand next month will have to tone down their behaviour as a mark of respect for the late Thai king.

Thailand will allow the game to be played as long as spectators wear neutral colours like black, white or grey.

Items like drums, whistles and trumpets and pretty much anything that can make a loud noise should be left at home.


There will also to be no chanting or cheering allowed at the November 15 match.

The Football Association of Thailand (FAT) had sought to move the match out of respect for the long-reigning monarch, who died earlier this month aged 88.

But FFA on Friday confirmed the 2018 World Cup qualifier would be played at Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium.
