History edit

Bangkok F.C. was founded in 1999 as Bangkok Bravo A.F.C., playing in the Thai Division 1 League until 2007. In an effort to garner media attention, owner Natthaphol Teepsuwan christened Bangkok Bravo in its entirety as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit Bravo A.F.C., using the full 168-character ceremonial name of Bangkok.

In 2010, Bangkok F.C. under former national team coach Thongsuk Sampahungsith won the Division 2 League Bangkok region, qualifying for the national play-offs. The Bulls started poorly but regained some form to finish fourth, which earned them an opportunity to earn promotion to the 1st division through another play-off round. There, Bangkok easily cruised past a hapless Narathiwat side 11–2 on aggregate.

2011, the Bulls' first season back in Division 1, ended in an 11th-place finish, followed by 10th place the following season. Disappointed with the team's performance, Thongsuk resigned and was replaced with Kiatisuk Senamuang, who led Bangkok to fourth in 2013.

In 2022, Bangkok competed in the Thai League 3 Bangkok region, their 16th season in Thai professional football.[1][2] They became runners-up of their region, advancing to the national play-offs. In addition, Bangkok suffered two first-round eliminations in cup competitions: 4–5 on penalties by Wat Bot City in the 2022–23 Thai FA Cup[3] and 1–4 to the Lamphun Warriors in the 2022–23 Thai League Cup.[4]
