Ratchaburi Mitr Phol FC
Ratchaburi Mitr Phol Football Club (Thai สโมสรฟุตบอลราชบุรี มิตรผล) is a Thai professional football club based in Ratchaburi Province and currently plays in Thai Leagues 1. Ratchaburi has the nickname The Dragons which can be seen in the club official logo.
Ratachaburi earned back to back promotions from the regional leagues to the TPL.
In 2011 they won the Central-East Division before earning promotion to Division 1 after winning Group A of the Division 2 playoffs. In the following season, the Dragons flew through the first division winning the title on their way to the TPL.
Whilst in Division 1, Ratchaburi made it to the Thai Leagues Cup final where they lost 4–1 to Buriram United. The final was most remembered for the farcical circumstances that Ratchaburi faced as they didn’t have any substitutes on the bench due to having several ineligible loanees from opponents Buriram United. Ratchaburi never stood a chance as Buriram won the final.
In 2016 the club moved to new ground called Mitr Phol Stadium that the stadium holds 10,000 spectators.
