Thailand is a country located at the center of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by countries like Burma, Laos, and Malaysia. Soccer is the second largest sport of the country, only behind Muay Thai (Thai national sport). However, Thai soccer is growing within the last years, in part thanks to Thailand Rush and its staff.
Thailand Rush has been operating for two years, going into their third and they currently have over 70 boys participating in its program. President Sonny Thweat and Technical Director Chris Cole are expanding the Rush blue in Asia with a clear mission: pursue excellence in soccer through opportunities in Chiang Mai, throughout Thailand and the rest of Asia by providing opportunities to their players to grow in this sport. “Soccer is played everywhere and it’s loved all over Thailand,” recognizes Technical Director, Chris Cole.
Thailand Rush is working hard to accomplish their goals, which focus in giving to the players the best opportunities through soccer and if possible, to get college scholarships in United States. They are succeeding in their goals, since Rush Thailand has had six players who are on scholarship in the last few years.
After two years working hard, the Rush colors are recognized in Thailand. Technical Director Chris Cole notices: “We have played and defeated all the top high school teams in northern Thailand. We have played and competed well against the top academy teams in the region. The Rush logo is known in Thailand.
