  • Floods force teams to relocate

Unsurprisingly, considering the sheer scale of the recent disaster, the floods have had a major affect on many clubs around Bangkok and Pathum Thani as you can see from this dramatic photo. Two of the worst-affected stadiums are Thupatemi (pictured here), home of Air Force United and JW Rangsit and Thammasat Stadium, where Police United play. Both pitches and the surrounding areas are still completely underwater forcing the clubs to temporarily move home to play their games. 

This weekend Police are playing a home game at Suphanburi while Air Force United and JW Rangsit will use the Army Stadium and Ramkamhaeng University for the rest of the season, or until the Thupatemi dries out. The flooding in Pathum Thani also means that the Leo Stadium is still unavailable. Bangkok Glass will therefore have to use the Yamaha Stadium, and North Bangkok, who had planned to use the Leo for their play-off games, have so far had to play at Chulalongkorn University, the IPE Stadium in Chonburi and will now use the Thephasadin this Sunday for their match with Krabi. Meanwhile, TOT are unable to use their stadium in Lak Si and have had to postpone their match this weekend with Samut Songkhram. Finally, Kasetsart University have had to leave their main campus in Chatuchak and will instead use their Kampaeng Saen campus in Nakhon Pathom for their play-off match against Phitsanulok on Saturday.

It's very hard for relief efforts to get into Nepal right now. I was living in Phuket when the Tsunami hit, and for the first couple weeks, locals were definitely more effective at providing relief than organizations that had no foothold in the island. The followings NGOs are all present in Nepal right now, and have been present since before the earthquake struck on April 25, 2015.
