Thailand’s national sport discipline is about to resume in June.
The number of new COVID-19 infection cases in Thailand has declined sharply since mid-April, reporting daily single-digit cases for the past 3 weeks. That means a lot of businesses are about to re-open.
The Muay Thai industry which is one of the biggest ones in the country is also following the regulations.
On May 23, the Muay Thai Association in Thailand and the Sports Authority of Thailand held a meeting in view of the improving COVID-19 situation in the country.
It was speculated earlier that boxing events are scheduled to restart on June 15 albeit with some restrictions. The two sports associations have come up with a three-phase plan to resume Muay Thai events in Thailand and is pending final approval from the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).
Detailed in the three-phase plan, boxing events in Thailand will resume in stage 1 with stadiums closed to the public. In phase 2, limited access is allowed to the public with strict social distancing measures and mandatory face masks. Full normalcy is expected in phase 3.
All Muay Thai camps will be allowed to operate in June but remain closed to the public.
