The 2013 FPL games start on Sunday, February 17, and will be held every Sunday for five weeks. The league is open to boys and girls of all abilities, and organised into two age divisions – Under 11s and Under 14s, with girls invited to play one year down.

PSS head coach Martin Hill says the league is now looking for 100 players from around the island, as well as volunteers to assist in coaching the teams.

Head coach and assistant coach positions are available, with training and help given to volunteers.

The season price for players is just B500 each, which includes a free FPL playing kit.

The Fair Play League is the brainchild of Hannu Tuukkanen, the Director of the Youth Football Home (YFH) – an orphanage for boys from all over Thailand who show outstanding football ability.

Originally he wanted to give boys at YFH the opportunity to mix with children from other schools and to practice their English.

The first FPL games were held in 2008, when the teams were made up of boys from YFH and the British International School, Phuket.

The league now include boys and girls from QSI International School, Phuket International Academy Day School, Kajonkiet, Darasamut and Headstart International School.
