Now LaLiga offers help to Thai soccer
LaLiga, the top Spanish soccer league, has entered a partnership with the Thai League, the premier competition in the Far East country, focused on the development of the sport.
Under the two-year collaboration agreement, the two leagues have established communication channels for the exchange of information on integrity, women’s soccer and various sports management issues.
The signing ceremony was conducted in the presence of officials including Iván Codina, the head of LaLiga’s regional office in Singapore, and Poompanmoung Somyot, the president of the Football Association of Thailand,
As part of the tie-up, LaLiga will offer advice on the creation of sports academies and provide a training programme, with a base in Spain, for young Thai players.
There will also be guidance on content creation and digital strategy to raise the profile of professional soccer in Thailand, with knowledge exchanges and workshops to educate the country’s leading clubs.
LaLiga and the Thai League have also pledged to collaborate on fair play initiatives and in the fight against match-fixing and audiovisual piracy, working together to shut down websites illegally showing matches, for the benefit of official rights-holders.
Last week, LaLiga signed an MoU to support the LFPE, a new professional leagues body being established in Ecuador.
The Spanish league now has links with more than 25 leagues worldwide.
