Thai professional football club based in Muang Thong Thani, Nonthaburi Province. Muangthong United is one of the richest football clubs in Thailand. The club is widely known as The Kirins or The Twin สนาม scg เมืองทอง. The club was founded in 1989.
The first name registered with Football Association of Thailand was “Norgjorg Pittayanusorn Football Club”. The club was founded by Worawi Makudi, the club race from Ngor Royal Cup which is the smallest cup. The club was promoted to play in the Thai Premier League in 2009, after it won the title for the Division one. In the 2009 season, the club had many new and notable players in the country.
Despite a successful start to the season, they pledged in April 2009 with Attaphol Buspakom a new coach. For the summer break, the association is, as expected by all experts, among the top five of the table and plays for the championship. One factor contributing to the club’s success is its close relationship with Belgian club Lierse, and the acquisition of Thai star player Teeratep Winothai and Ronnachai Rangsiyo, the striker from PEA FC. In 2010, Attaphol Buspakom was sacked following a string of unsuccessful results, and was replaced by Belgian René Desaeyere, who managed Muangthong for two seasons.
Under his leadership, Muangthong qualified for the 2010 AFC Champions League. At the start of the season Muangthong United signed former Liverpool player Robbie Fowler to a one-year contract. After Fowler’s contract expired, Muangthong United signed a contract with Serbia coach Slaviša Jokanović. In this season, the club did not play in the AFC Champions League or AFC Cup. Muangthong United play their home games in the SCG Stadium, originally designed for about 5,000 spectators. The stadium , unlike most stadiums in Thailand, has no running track. Due to the success of the club and the increasing number of spectators, the stadium was built with steel tube stands with 15,000 seats during the 2008 season.
