Songkran Soccer 7s Welcome Letter
We welcome you to the 2nd Songkran International Soccer 7s. Songkran is the traditional Thai New Year. This is the time for Thais to pay homage to Buddha images, clean their houses, and sprinkle water on their elders in a show of respect. Anyone who ventures out on the streets is likely to get a thorough dousing of water, all in good fun, but also quite welcome at the peak of the hot season.
Due to the number of teams we will hold this tournament over one day only but you will still enjoy the same number of games and parties as you would if it was a two day tournament. It will just give you some more time to enjoy the festivities of Songkran.
The magnificent Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Center will again be the venue for the tournament and our parties will be at the usual Soi Crocodile and Taipan Discotheque venues. It will be impossible to remain dry during these parties so embrace the tradition of Songkran.
Special thanks to Molten provider of the VG5000 soccer balls and The Phuket News our tournament media partner.
Enjoy the tournament and have a great time in Phuket.
Alain & Tim
