Hua Hin City have just posted the following, which in my translator means FREE admission for everybody tomorrow. If any of you clever guys can confirm, I'd be grateful:

พรุ่งนี้เข้าชมฟรี!!!!นะคะ (2 แมตช์สุดท้ายในบ้าน)
ไม่มีการขายบัตรเข้าชม
มาร่วมเชียร์ ร่วมให้กำลังใจนักเตะกันเยอะๆนะคะ

I'm only using Google Translate but I'm getting the same thing. It says free admission for the last 2 home matches.

Free admission makes sense. I went to the last game, and I reckoned takings from ticket sales were around 1,000 Baht. To achieve the income they had to employ a ticket seller, 3 ticket checkers at the gates, 3 rubber stamp people - cheaper, and less hassle to let them in free.

I don't drink beer, but I believe they sell Leo at about 50 Baht/can.

Hua Hin City just does not get enough local support.
Thais are passionate about their town/city of their birth, and you can see that passion with the way they support for their local sports teams.
Hua Hin is a migrant city, where the vast majority of Thais are not actually from Hua Hin, but have migrated for work or moved there with their Farang spouse, so compared to Ratchaburi, who I have followed on and off for quite a few years and Prachuap Khiri the passion and the support is not there.

I think, since their success in 2014, followed by the optimism of 2015, when support was on the up, many supporters, myself included have been driven away through mismanagement.

There are many reasons, but one core reason, which I won't discuss whilst the club are under investigation.

Last home game of the season, and admission is free.

The poster features an old Hua Hin City hero, Owusu Heyford, the man who incited the Prachuap Chairman to lose his head in 2014. Probably the dirtiest player I've seen Thai league football, Back with Nonthaburi for a couple of seasons now, after serving his 12 month ban from football.

Hi,

Might be a bit late but..

Here in holiday in Khao Takiab area. Always look up if there’s a game on locally wherever I am. I take it you just turn up and pay in the gate tomorrow.
