PHUKET: THE host venue for the Liverpool Legends versus the Legends of Thailand Phuket leg has officially been advised to the Phuket Gazette as the Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Center (TSLC), by the owners and promoters North Scoreboard Co Ltd.

“Thanyapura was selected for the quality of the pitch and facilities to support our international teams and visitors, as well as the enthusiasm of the team to be involved in the Football Legends concept.

“We are excited to hold this important match at the world class facilities of Thanyapura which we believe the fans will enjoy immensely,” said Cris Rosenbergs, Director of North Scoreboard, the owner and creator of the Football Legends concept.

Spread across 22.5 hectares, Thanyapura is a state-of-the-art facility for international sporting events. The Legends match will be played on their synthetic rugby surface, endorsed by the International Rugby Board.

“The opportunity to showcase our facilities at this stage of our development with such an internationally famous group of players is one we have proudly taken. Thanyapura represents a major step forward in sports and leisure facilities on Phuket and we feel this match and its other activities will highlight to the people of Phuket, Thailand, and indeed around the world, who will see the match on TV, what Phuket has to offer for world class sporting events,” said Dave Roberts, Vice President for Operations of TSLC.

“The Legends of Liverpool have brought a great deal of success to the team in the past, and have many fans around the world. Liverpool is one of the leading teams that Thai people support.
