Burma’s Football Revolution?





It remains to be seen how much Burma has really opened up, and whether it will continue to do so. Elections have been held, Aung San Suu Kyi is free to travel and she’s now an elected member of parliament.

But as often happens, sport has been busy behind the scenes for some time. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. If North Korea can engage with the international community in the football realm, then Myanmar, still called Burma by the U.K. among other countries, certainly can.

Suu Kyi studied at Oxford and married a British subject, and football in the country has been under some recent Brit influence.

Peter Butler, an Englishman who used to play for West Ham United in the English Premier League, spent part of the 2010 season coaching Yangon United.
