Krung Thai Bank FC was a football club from central of Bangkok established by Krung Thai Bank, PCL. in year 1977. Krung Thai Bank officially withdrew from the Thailand football scene in January 2009 after being bought out by Bangkok Glass F.C.. Although selling out their Thailand Premier League status to BG FC Sport, Krung Thai Bank did enter the 2009 Queen's Cup.
Bangkok glass FC was founded in 2006 and played in the Khǒr Royal Cup, the fourth level of the Thai football league. In the beginning of the 2009 season, the club bought the franchise of Krung Thai Bank FC in order to compete in the Thai Premier League. The club then started the pre-season under the name of Raj-Vithi-BGFC in the 2009 Queen's Cup in the match against Haaka-Sriracha FC. The team was made up of players from Bangkok Glass FC, trialling players with the potential to play in the Thai Premier League.
In their first Premier League season, the club was managed by Hans Emser, a German Head Coach. Under his service, the club was unbeaten for twelve league games in a row. He was a successful coach from Bangkok Glass FC with a points average of 2,33. Nevertheless, Emser himself declared that he preferred to work with the youth team rather than the senior team.
The club then appointed Surachai Jaturapattarapong, a former Thailand national team player who previously worked as a coach in S. League of Singapore as the club's new head coach. After a poor start to the 2010 season, Surachai stepped down from his post and was replaced by the Brazilian Carlos Roberto de Carvalho. His tenure in charge was short-lived though as he was fired in October 2010 after two heavy defeats to PEA Buriram and Osotspa Saraburi. Bangkok Glass finished a disappointing 5th in the TPL in 2010. The current manager is Supasin Leelarit and Surachai Jaturapattarapong was re-appointed as head coach at the end of the 2011 season. After a disappointing season Surachai stepped down again from his post October 2012 and was replaced by Phil Stubbins. Bangkok Glass finished the season a disappointing 8th in the TPL 2012. After short lived in Bangkok Glass FC Phil Stubbins stepped down in March 2013. For short time assistant coach Anuruk taken over.
