About Southern Beach Football Club

Founded in 3 southern border provinces in Thailand to change the life of children who are exposed to the ongoing conflict and violence in the areas, Southern Beach Football Club aims to create a sense of unity, stability and happiness among the local children by giving them access to sports; namely to play football. The football club is trying to help and inspire children to pursue their dreams, and to be less negatively affected by the by their violent surroundings. The club is thus supporting with coaching and are giving the children an opportunity to play in an international youth football tournament in Sweden, Gothia Cup.
