ABSTRACT
This qualitative research was designed to discover the views regarding global warmingamong six Thai professional football clubs in the Northeastern of Thailand (Isan) including Buriram United (BRUTD), Ubon United (UBUTD), KhonKaen FC (KKFC), NongbuaPichaya FC (NBPFC), Sisaket FC (SSKFC) and UdonThani FC (UDFC). All of them are playing in T1 and T2 of Thailand Premiere League (TPL), the top two highest football league in Thailand. Four club´s presidents and two clubs’ representatives were examined using an indepth interview that covered global warming awareness, willingness to act, concerns and collaborations needs to run green project anti global warming effects. The result revealed that Thai Isan professional football clubs are available to contribute their role as leaders to carry green projects to mitigate the effects from global warming problems in nine dimensions coming with some concerns and supportive collaboration needs. It also showed that there is a significant relationship between nine willingness activities to act, concerns and collaborations which could be a key encouragement and discouragement for the clubs to run their green project campaigns in the near future. The idea to form Isan TPL Football Clubs Connections for Global Warming has been discussed positively among all target clubs.
