Kit review: Buriram United, Thailand’s finest

Buriram United. Thailand’s most decorated football team, winning 7 of the 22 championships since the Thai League 1 began in 1996. They currently preside in 2nd place after 10 games, with a game in hand on the leaders, Port F.C. Managed by the Montenegrin, Božidar Bandović (former Olympiacos manager), Buriram share a vicious rivalry with Muangthong, their closest competitors for the title in recent years. The Thai League runs from February to October and Buriram sported this gem of a kit in their resounding 2018 title win, when The Thunder Castles won the league by a whopping 16 points. In terms of aesthetics, it’s not bad at all to say it was only £15 from a grubby corner shop in Phuket. Although maybe slightly over-sponsored, the Thai tag brings some much-needed eccentricity to the shirt, history lives on in the star studded sleeves while the old reliable collar adds a bit off class. Not the sort you’d casually wear – but a nice one to add to the collection.
