Rajamangala Stadium is sold out.

The South Korea national football team (ranked 22nd by FIFA), led by interim head coach Hwang Sun-hong, will face Thailand (ranked 101st by FIFA) in the fourth Group C match of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2026 Canada-Mexico-USA (North and Central America) Asia Region Second Qualifying Round at the Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. ET. South Korea (W7, D2, L1, P9, +8) are currently in first place, while Thailand (W4, D1, L1, P5, +4, +1) are in second place.

In their last match, South Korea drew with Thailand at Anbang. It was Korea who had the first laugh. In the 42nd minute, after a Jung Woo-young penetrating pass and Lee Jae-sung cutback, Son Heung-min found the back of the net with a neat finish. However, they were unable to hold on to their hard-earned lead. Thailand broke the deadlock 17 minutes into the second half when substitute Supanat Mueanta slotted home a low cross. After missing out on the three points, 홀덤사이트 Hwang Sun-Hong-ho traveled to Thailand and arrived in Bangkok ready to fight.

The rematch in five days will take place at the Rajamangala National Stadium, Thailand’s soccer mecca. Opened in 1998, Rajamangala National Stadium was built for the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok. Its capacity was reduced from 65,000 to 48,900 after renovations.

The local atmosphere is beyond imagination.

But for the fourth round match against South Korea, all 48,900 seats were sold out within a week of tickets going on sale.

“One of the things I would like to see most is for the national team to become a trend again,” said FAT President Nualpan Ram Sam, who is trusted and respected by Thais. Football without fans is not real. I am grateful to the fans. I hope we can continue to maintain this atmosphere. Please come to Rajamangala Stadium and support us with all your might.”

After the sellout was confirmed, he added: “There is nothing more important than the power of the 12th man (supporters). I am happy and proud to see the national team getting attention again. Of course, the home game against South Korea is very tough. But I believe we can give a lot of encouragement to the coaching staff and the players. If we are united like this, I believe in what can happen in 90 minutes,” he said.

After a dominant performance at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in front of 64,900 fans, Thailand will look to fight back at the Rajamangala National Stadium in front of 48,900.
