Saturday March 21, 2015, SCG Muangthong United will head off to one corner of Thailand, Payee Island, for the next event in the MTUTD: KICK & SHARE campaign. The team will meet with local children and bring to them football equipment, but also spend time demonstrating and teaching the kids about football.
Payee Island in Phang Na is a small community on one of the many cliff-like islands dotted about Phang Na Bay, including the famous "James Bond Isalnd" featured in the 1974 film "The Man with the Golden Gun." The kids of Payee love football, and the community strapped together several make-shift floating platforms to build a football pitch: the floating field.
The event is designed to inspire and connect with the MTUTD fan base, and to encourage youth to participate in organized sport, and to build and develop future Thai footballers. With each Kick & Share event, scouts are always on the lookout for potential kids to join the MTUTD ACADEMY program, and to find the future stars of football for MTUTD.
The club's public relations officer stated, "This event highlights how important it is to share our football team, and it is hoped this event will inspire children in the area."
