Bangkok rushes to get main Futsal World Cup stadium ready

- +

Construction workers are putting the final touches to Bangkok's showpiece venue for the 2012 Fifa Futsal World Cup after its construction fell behind schedule. 

The 12,000 all-seater capacity Bangkok Futsal Arena in Nong Chok is due to be handed over to 2012 Fifa Futsal World Cup organisers in less than two weeks. Seats and a scoreboard were being installed today, and the area outside the stadium is being developed.

Construction on the site was initially delayed because of heavy rain in October 2011 that brought flooding to parts of Bangkok, with further problems caused by more heavy rain in recent weeks and the threat of the Gaemi weather system hitting Thailand's capital.
