BG Pathum United wrapped up the 2021–22 Thai League 1 by beating Chonburi 4–1 in what was to become Peerapong Pichitchotirat's farewell match.[27]

The team made multiple changes to the playing squad and spent the pre-season training camp in Hua Hin. 2022–23 Thai League 1 began with BG Pathum United winning the 2022 Thailand Champions Cup, this time beating Buriram United 2–3, and becoming the first club in 4 years to hold on to this title consecutively.

“We had a chip on our shoulder after last year so we're very pleased to go through to the next round,” Teguramori told the-afc.com after the game.[31] “Kitchee are a very good team and they've beaten Thai teams before. But coaches always say if you study the other team's tactics you can always beat the other team and, even though there was a very long gap between the group stages and today, we were able to prove that we can win.”

On 22 August 2022, BG Pathum United took on the then-four-time semi-finals Urawa Red Diamonds at the Saitama Stadium 2002.

Stadium edit

BG Stadium

BG Stadium, initially named LEO Stadium, is the official home ground of BG Pathum United Football Club, located on the perimeter of the Bangkok Glass Public Company Limited, Pathum Thani province. Since its grand opening in 2010, the ground has been installed with high-quality artificial surface. However, from the 2018 season onward, the stadium was replaced with real grass while the iconic three-sided stadium has gone through multiple phases of evolution to reach its current 10,114 seating capacity and has been approved by FIFA and the AFC as an “A Class” level football ground.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BG Stadium was chosen as the host venue for the 2021 AFC Champions League group F matches and 2022 AFC Champions League Group G matches.
