Originally football fans had been told to resist any "joyful activities" at the match, such as chanting, and to wear neutral colours like black, white and grey after the death of Thai king Bhumibol Adulyadej sent the country into a state of collective grief.
Thailand’s military government declared a period of mourning for which some temporary new laws were introduced regarding public behaviour.

"The Thai Cabinet has announced that the restrictions on entertainment activities, including sports organizations, shall be lifted on 14 November 2016 after the completion of the first 30 days of mourning period."
"In this regard, all supporters attending the match shall (1) dress in polite manner as they see appropriate, (2) use cheering equipment, (3) show symbols and bring banners inside the stadium (4) sing cheering songs and (5) appropriately conduct joyful activities both inside and surrounding areas of the stadium"
