BANGKOK — The Football Association of Thailand (FAT) has requested that next month’s 2018 AFC World Cup qualifier at home to Australia is played elsewhere as the country grieves for the passing of its revered monarch, King Bhumipol Adulyadej.

Thailand has entered a 30-day period of mourning in which all high-profile entertainment activities have to be cancelled or toned down.

As a result, the FAT has decided to call a halt to the Thai football season, with three Premier League of Thailand (PLT) games still to play and two cups to be decided.

They have also submitted a request to FIFA, asking for the Group B game, scheduled for Nov. 15 in Bangkok, to be played on neutral territory.
