Where to Watch Muay Thai Fights in Bangkok – Best Stadium Guide 2020

If you are in Bangkok then watching live muay thai fights is an experience you cannot pass up. This list of the best stadiums to watch live muay thai includes both free and paid stadiums, so you can watch the art of eight limbs to your heart’s content. Scroll down to the map to get a visual of where the stadiums are in Bangkok.

Muay thai is the national sport of Thailand and it’s an integral part of the culture here. You need to see live fights and watch the gamblers screaming and throwing their hands up, the crowd yelling, “owaaay”, and hear the music blaring. If you’re a martial artist then you definitely can’t miss out.

To truly appreciate the fights, don’t forget to review the rules and how to score. Otherwise, you might get a little confused.

New Lumpinee Stadium

Lumpinee is the pinnacle of muay thai. It’s where the best fighters in the world compete against the best, and being a champion here holds a lot of clout. The only other stadium that can rival Lumpinee’s prestige is Rajadamnern.

The new stadium is 30 minutes from downtown and close to the Don Muang airport, so you have to drive through rush-hour traffic to watch the fights. If you’re a muay thai fan or need the air conditioning it’s totally worth it to see high-caliber fighters perform.

You can choose to sit with the other foreigners ringside or you can save a few baht and sit in the middle of the action in zone 2 or zone 3.

Where: 6 Thanon Ram Intra, แขวงอนุสาวรีย์ Khet Bang Khen, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10220, Thailand

When: Fights are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 5 pm, but view the schedule at muaythai2000.com, as some nights get canceled.

Price: Tickets range from 1000 baht (zone 3) to 2000 baht (ringside). If you buy in person make sure you go directly to the ticket counter. Scammers might try to sell you fake tickets just outside the stadium.

Rajadamnern Stadium

Rajadamnern is the other main muay thai stadium in Bangkok. It’s been open since 1945, and becoming a champion here comes with similar clout to winning in Lumpinee.

What Rajadamnern has over Lumpinee is that it’s open more nights and is closer to downtown Bangkok, making it more accessible. You can also order tickets online on their website.

Where: 1 Ratchadamnoen Nok Rd, Pom Prap, Khet Pom Prap Sattru Phai, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand

When: Fights are held Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 6:30 pm, but check out the schedule at rajadamnern.com, as some nights get canceled.

Price: Tickets range from 1000 baht (zone 3) to 2000 baht (ringside). If you buy in person make sure you go directly to the ticket counter. Scammers might try to sell you fake tickets just outside the stadium.

Channel 7 Boxing Stadium

Want to watch high-level muay thai fights for free? Channel 7 has cards with many high-tier and up and coming fighters, and it’s really close to the Chatuchak weekend market. This makes it great for both thai boxing fans and casual fans to want to watch a couple of rounds.

This stadium is not for everyone, though. It will be crowded and the seating is uncomfortable, but hey free authentic muay thai is still free.

Where: 998/1, Phahon Yothin, Khwaeng Chom Phon, Khet Chatuchak, Bangkok, Thailand

When: Fights start at 2 pm, but come early if you want a good seat.

Price: Free

Siam Boxing Stadium / Omnoi Stadium

Siam Boxing Stadium usually features heavier pro Thai fighters and also has western foreigners, or farang, on the card. It’s a little farther from downtown Bangkok, but might be worth it for the knockouts. The higher weight classes also mean knockouts are more likely.

For the cheap price of 500 baht, you can sit ringside. You also don’t have to worry about a huge crowd like with Channel 7.

Where: 74 Moo 12, Soi Phet Kasem 87 , Om Noi , 74130 Krathum Baen , Samut Sakhon, 74130, Thailand

When: Fights are on Sundays and run from 12:15 pm to 2 pm

Price: 500 baht

Muay Thai Super Champ

This is the newest promotion on the list, but it’s put on by Channel 8 and they’re not new to hosting and broadcasting big fight events. The location off Khao San road is still temporary, but their permanent location is in the works.

The unique thing about Super Champ is that they have foreigners against Thais on their cards and the production high quality.

Where: 41 Phra Athit Rd, Khwaeng Chana Songkhram, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand

When: Fights are on Sundays at 6:30 pm.

Price: Free

MX Muay Xtreme

MX Muay Xtreme is unique in that fighters wear MMA style gloves and the knockout rate is pretty high. Casual fans might enjoy that there is high production value and no wai kru dances at the beginning of matches. It’s also worth noting that there are Thai vs farang matches here too.

After a brief hiatus, MX Muay Xtreme is back and is no longer on Soi Cowboy street. Now it’s at the Bazaar Hotel in Lat Phrao, right by the MRT station.

Try to get in a little early as seats fill up quickly because they’re free.

When: Fights are on Sundays at 1:15 pm.

Price: Free

MBK Fight Nights

MBK Fight Nights take place inside the MBK Center Mall. Cards feature both Thais and foreigners. These aren’t the same calibre of fighters as Lumpinee or Rajadamnern, but it’s free.
