The football authorities, made up of referees and representatives from the Thai Football League, found that the Phuket fans’ conduct, which included the throwing of bottles at the referee and linesmen as they left the pitch at half time, unacceptable.
The incident came after a referee sent a Phuket FC player off.
Num, a PR spokesperson from Phuket FC said, “Phuket FC fans who exhibit unsporting behaviour in the future could be banned [from the ground].”
He added, “Those supporting the team should also respect referees’ decisions, which will lead to a great game.”
Meanwhile, responding to rumours that Chairman of Phuket FC Club Pamuke Achariyachai will be handing over the running of the club to his son Previtr – currently studying at the University of Massachusetts – Mr Num had this to say: “There is a rumour that he will come to take over Phuket FC soon. However, so far it doesn’t seem like that.
“Although [Mr Previtr] is active in establishing the Phuket FC Youth Academy, he is still focusing on his studies and his music band. He will be involved in the family business at some stage in his life, but not now.”
