Two football club billboards from Buriram

This is an interesting phenomenon: professionally organized and presented modern football clubs complete with international style logos and calls to locals for support. Ominously, these groups are owned by political figures–here Newin and his wife who are prominently displayed on the billboards. In the future, expect this sort of football club to supply its supporters to enforce local political will and reinforce the power positions of provincial kingpins.
