Bangkok Veterans League
— Team —
• Japan FC •

Japan FC was the 2nd team of the 4 new expansion teams of our Mar/2007 competition. We were delighted to see Bangkok's Japanese community muster a 2nd team in the Vet just within a year of the 1st (BU Japan).

With a deep bench, they gave all their opponents a tough time during their "first-ever" entry in the Vets, and signalled they won't be push over for anyone in the months to come.
