VISIT SPORT CITY
Thailand's theme park for sport lovers.

If Phuket is the go-to place for beaches and Chiang Mai is Thailand's top-pick for treks and waterfalls, then Buriram is the country's undisputed epicentre for all things sports.

Widely known as Sports City, the nearby complex featuring the Chang Arena and Buriram International Circuit is unique in Thailand and has all the characteristics of a theme park for sport lovers.

Developing a “Sport City” is an important strategy for Thailand as it continues to expand its sports industry to complement the country’s already successful tourism package. Enhancing a city through sport may be a challenge, but Buriram has proved that the results justify the means. And, as well as the city’s success, the surrounding province has also seen tremendous development in infrastructure.

BURIRAM INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT

It's lights out and away we go at Thailand's premier motorsport venue.

Thailand’s first ever FIA Grade 1 track, the Buriram International Circuit was designed by world-famous track architect Hermann Tilke and opened in 2014. The 4.5km circuit regularly hosts MotoGP, SuperGT, World Super Bike, the Asian Le Mans Series and World Touring Championship events.

CHANG ARENA

A trip to Buriram wouldn't be complete without catching a game at the local Thunder Castle.

Originally founded in 1970 as Provincial Electricity Authority F.C., today Buriram United F.C. is one of the biggest teams in Asia and was the first team to win all three domestic cups in one season. The Thunder Castle regularly hosts matches from both the AFC and ASEAN Cup and, with a capacity of over 32,000, visitors can be sure of a great atmosphere.

BURIRAM MARATHON

Held every February, the Buriram Marathon attracts over 30,000 runners from all over the world.

Starting and finishing at the Buriram International Circuit, the marathon was founded in 2017 and is regularly attended by some of the world’s best long distance runners. Admission is open to anyone with a good pair of trainers and there is a range of different distances available.
