Club info

Like the most provincial teams in Thailand, Sukhothai FC was founded in 2009 and played it's inaugural season in the Regional League. However, just in the past three years, the club made the breakthrough.

After spending its first years at the bottom half of the tables in the Regional League, Sukhothai finished 3rd in 2013 and could land its first appearance in the play-off round to Thailand's Division 1. Finishing one point short, Sukhothai FC missed promotion.

A year later and as champions of its zone, the side managed a marching-through from the Regional League to Thailand's top-flight.

Freshly promoted to Thailand's top-flight, Sukhothai played a good role and caused a suprise when finishing eight at the end of the 2016 season.

The Fire Bats also managed to reach the semi-final of the Thai FA Cup. However, with the dead of King Bhumibol all competitions in Thailand came to a sudden end. And so the FA Cup 2016.

In order to decide who can represent Thailand in the AFC Champions League 2017 as FA Cup winner, a lotterie took place which eventually saw Sukhothai FC as the winner.
