SINGAPORE: Thailand fans will be able to enjoy free-to-air coverage of the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup matches from Monday (Dec 26).
Live coverage of the remaining matches will be carried by the Thai government’s free-to-air channel T-Sports as well as on Channel 9 MCOT, global sports marketing agency SPORTFIVE announced in a media release.
This was made possible through a deal with Lottery Online, supported by the Football Association of Thailand and the Sports Authority of Thailand, added the agency.

SPORTFIVE’s Managing Director Malcolm Thorpe said: “As defending champion from the 2020 event, Thailand’s performance in this year’s event will be a focus of attention for the local fans and we hope Thai fans will give their loudest support to the national team and cheer them on.”
