They have participated in the Summer Olympics twice and in the Asian Games four times. The Thai team is dominant in South East Asia, having won the ASEAN Football Championships in 1996, 2000 and 2002, and regularly dominate the football event of the South East Asian Games.

History

National team

The Thailand national football team was constituted in 1915. Originally, the team was known as the Siam national football team. They played their first casual match on December 20, 1915 against The Europeans in Thailand at The Royal Bangkok Sport Club Stadium. One year later on April 25, 1916 the Football Association of Siam was founded by the king Vajiravudh Rama VI.

In 1930 the Siam national football team was invited to Indochina to compete with the Indochina national team which included South Vietnamese and French players. This competition was held April 14–20. It was also the first international match for the Siam national football team.

In 1949 when Siammarker changed its name to Thailandmarker, the Football Association of Siam was also renamed the Football Association of Thailand and the Siam national football team became known as the Thailand national football team.

In 1956, Thailand appeared in the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbournemarker, Australia where the team lost to Great Britain 0–9 in the first round, which was the biggest defeat of Thailand's team and they failed to advance to the quarterfinals round.

In 1965, Thailand gained its first achievement in international football by winning the gold medal in the Southeast Asian Peninsular Games (also known as the SEA Games) hosted in Kuala Lumpurmarker, Malaysiamarker. In the history of the Thai football team, they have won the gold 12 times in football at the SEA Games.

Thailand appeared in the Summer Olympics again in 1968 in Mexico Citymarker, Mexicomarker where they lost all three matches in the first round. They lost to Bulgaria 0–7, Guatemala 1-4 and Czechoslovakia 0–8 which was the last game in their Summer Olympics.

In 1972, Thailand hosted the AFC Asian Cup for the first time between May 7–19. Their best result in the tournament was losing to Cambodia on penalties 3-5 after a tie in the main game 2-2 in the third-place final and receiving third place in the competition. Thailand has qualified to the AFC Asian Cup six times. They qualified automatically as hosts two times. In 1972 and 2007 they co-hosted with Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Thailand was the first champion in the King's Cup in 1976 but shared the trophy with Malaysia after a tie in the final match 1–1. Since the founding of the King's Cup in 1968, Thailand has won the King's Cup 13 times.

In 1996, Thailand won the first title of Tiger Cup (also known as the ASEAN Football Championship) which was hosted by Singaporemarker, after beating Malaysia in the final match 1–0. They were the champions again in 2000 which was held in Chiang Maimarker, and in 2002 which was hosted by Indonesia and Singapore.

The Thai football team's best performances in the Asian Games have been the semi-finals in the 1998 Bangkokmarker, the 2002 Busanmarker, and the 2006marker Dohamarker.

Controversy

The 1998 ASEAN Football Championship tournament was held in Vietnammarker.

This tournament was marred by an unsportsmanlike match between Thailand and Indonesia during the group stage of the competition. Both teams were already assured of qualification for the semi-finals, but both teams knew that the winners of the game would face hosts Vietnam in the semi-finals, while the losing team would face Singapore who were perceived to be easier, and would avoid the fuss of moving training bases from Ho Chi Minh Citymarker to Hanoimarker for the semi-final. The first half saw little action, with both teams barely making an attempt to score. During the second half both teams managed to score, partly thanks to half-hearted defending, resulting in a 2–2 tie after 90 minutes. Then, during extratime, Indonesian defender Mursyid Effendi deliberately kicked the ball into his own goal, despite the Thais attempts to stop him doing so, thus handing Thailand a 3-2 victory. Both teams were fined for "violating the spirit of the game" and Mursyid Effendi was banned from football for life.

In the semi-finals, Thailand lost to Vietnam, and Indonesia also lost to Singapore. In the final, the title was to elude the hosts as they went down 1–0 to unfancied Singapore in one of the competition's biggest shocks to date.

Home stadium


Rajamangala National Stadium ( ) is the biggest sporting arena in Thailandmarker. It currently has a capacity of 60,000. It is located in Bang Kapimarker, Bangkokmarker. The stadium was built in 1998 for the 1998 Asian Games and is the home stadium of Thai football team up to present.
