Bangkok Glass

Bangkok Glass will be making their debut appearance in an FIVB Volleyball Club World Championship in 2016.

The club was set up in 2014 and since has won the Thailand League twice, in addition to two Thai-Denmark Super League titles.

Bangkok Glass took part in the 2015 Asian Club Championship in Vietnam and won their first international title overwhelming Japan’s Hisamitsu Springs in five sets in the final. Their star middle blocker Pleumjit Thinkaow picked up the event’s MVP award.

In the 2016 edition of the continental competition, held in Bunyan in the Philippines, Bangkok Glass fell to Japan’s NEC Red Rockets of Kawasaki in five sets in the semifinals, but claimed the bronze with a thrilling five-set comeback win over Kazakhstan’s Altay Oskmen.

Middle blocker Thinkaow has also led the Thai national team to glory in international tournaments and has become the idol of millions of young volleyball players.

Youngsters Pornpun Guedpard and Jarasporn Bundasak are two of the most promising prospects in Thai volleyball and have already made themselves a name in the senior national team over the last two years.

Mr.Kittipong Pornchartyingcheep

Kittipong first stepped into the spotlight in 1995 when he helped Thailand win the South East Asian Games title on home soil. As a left-handed spiker, he also won the Best Server award. Kittipong was later in the Thailand team which qualified for the 1998 FIVB Volleyball World Championship Finals in Japan.
Kittipong, however, sustained a serious right knee injury and subsequently called time on his career as a player ahead of the Thai team's departure for the 2003 South East Asian Games in Vietnam.
As a coach, Kittipong helped Bangkok Glass move up from Division II to Thailand’s top-tier league in 2014, before leading the club to the Thailand League and Super League titles in 2015 and again in 2016.
Alongside their domestic achievements, he also helped Bangkok Glass become the first Thai club to claim the Asian Club Championship title in 2015 in Vietnam following a stunning victory in the final over defending champions Hisamitsu Springs of Japan. Kittipong also led Bangkok Glass to bronze this year in the Asian Club World Championship in the Philippines.
Before taking over Bangkok Glass, 44-year-old Kittipong coached club sides in Malaysia and Vietnam, as well as the women’s national team of Vietnam.
