Next Weekend’s Indochina Cup

Posted by Vietnam Swans on November 24, 2009

Ex Richmond player, the Flea, Dale Weightman will do the draw for next weekend's Indochina Cup as well as conduct an auction.

Next weekend, the Indochina Cup will be played in Bangkok between the Thailand Tigers, Lao Elephants and Vietnam Swans. Below is the update on organisational issues provided by Thailand Tigers President, Teagy.


We have booked a 50 seat bus for the Vietnam Swans and a 20 seat bus for the Laos Elephants. Both buses will pick up the teams @ the Ambassador Hotel at 11.15am and depart @ 11.30am and the drive to the ground will take around 1 hour each way.

Hotel Address:
Ambassador Hotel Bangkok
171, Sukhumvit Soi 11,
Bangkok, 10110, Thailand

Ground Address:
Bangkok Patana School (football ground)
2/38 Soi LaSalle (Sukumvit 105)
Bangna Bangkok

Game Schedule:

Each game will have 2 x 20 minute halves & 10 minutes for half time which totals 50 mins for each game with 20 minutes between each game. We will start the first game at 1.30pm and should be done by 4.30pm for presentations.

  • Team 1 v Team 2 @ 1.30pm
  • Team 3 v Team 1 @ 2.10pm
  • Team 2 V Team 3 @ 3.20pm

(The Draw will be done by “the Flea” on Wednesday evening, 25 November, 2009.)

4.30pm presentations (No final needed)


We would like 4 volunteers from each team to do the Boundary & Goal umpiring when they are not playing a game.

We also need a Field Umpire to assist Howard Noble for the 3 games so if anyone has good knowledge of the game and is not playing can they let us know ASAP.

Saturday Night @ the Australian Pub (opposite The Ambassador Hotel)

From 7.30pm onwards you can wander across the road to The Australian Pub for a Sausage Roll & Pie night. At 9pm ex Richmond Footballer Dale Weightman (the Flea) will be auctioning AFL Club merchandise and more with all after expense proceeds going to charity.
