Team profile

The year 2009 turned out to be a golden one for the Thailand women’s team, coinciding nicely with the 50th anniversary celebrations of Volleyball in the country. The miracle happened in Hanoi, Vietnam when the Thai team were crowned continental champions for the first time after winning the 15th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship. Furthermore, for the first time they took part in the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.

Thailand first showed signs of their current level of success in 2007, when they beat Korea, Kazakhstan and Chinese Taipei at the 14th Asian Women’s Championship in September that year to claim third place behind China and eventual winners Japan. And in their first appearance at a World Cup in 2007 in Japan they finished in 10th place with a credible two wins.

Thailand finished third at the 2001 Asian Women’s Championship, beating Japan on the way, before debuting at the FIVB World Grand Prix in 2002. Since then they have appeared in the tournament every year except for 2007, finishing 10th in the most recent edition. Another highlight was a fourth-place finish at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.

The Thailand women’s team was founded in 1979 under an FIVB development plan called “The 2001 National Team Project.” The team is currently focused on preparation for the 2011 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics and interestingly enough, all national team members also play for the same club team Federbrau which has qualified to participate in the FIVB Club World Championships in December and is also coached by national coach Kiattipong Radchatagrieengkai.

Coach profile

Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai began coaching Thailand in 2009 and has been in charge of the side for over 60 matches.

He made an immediate impact by leading Thailand to the Asian Championship. He has over 14 years’ experience and also heads up club side Federbrau which contains all the members of his national squad.
