The 2nd Pattaya Entertainment Midnight football tournament reached its conclusion last month with the official closing ceremony being held on Wednesday, May 29 at the Chang all-weather football stadium in central Pattaya.
Organized by the Pattaya Entertainment Business Club and City Hall, the tournament was conceived to provide local football enthusiasts with an event outside of their normal working hours, to encourage them to participate in sport and stay away from vices and drugs.

The tournament featured nightly 7-a-side soccer matches and ran from May 8-23 featuring 22 teams. The eventual winners were the Ping Pub 2 team who collected the trophy and 50,000 baht in prize money while the runners-up were the Muang Jumlong team who received a consolation prize of 30,000 baht. All trophies and awards were presented by local public officials and dignitaries during the closing ceremony.
A highlight of the final evening was a fun game of football between the Pattaya VIPs and the young Thai lady models team, with honours remaining just about even at the final whistle.
