Thailand Football Federation (FAT) announced that it would ban cheering at the World Cup qualification match against Australia, which will be held next month.
The country is still in mourning, following the passing of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. As such, “All cheering and props such as drums, amplifiers and banners will be banned inside the stadium,” FAT spokesman told news agency.
Furthermore, fans in attendance “must wear black, white, grey or other sombre colours,” he said.
Thailand has lost all 4 matches in the third round of the 2018 World Cup qualification, conceding 10 goals while scoring just one.
Meanwhile, Australia is currently second in the same group as Thailand with two wins and two draws, trailing two points behind group leaders Saudi Arabia.
