History[edit]

1960–2009[edit]

The club was founded as Police Sports Club in 1960. In 1965 the Association celebrated its first and only championship. After a period of inactivity, the club had recorded three relegations and 2 promotions in the last 10 years. They were promoted to the Thailand Premier League in 2006, followed in 2007 by a relegation. The following year, the club missed promotion by a margin of just 4 points of the season and finished in fourth place. Before the 2009 season, the club was renamed 'Royal Thai Police F.C.. This was due to the new requirements by the Thailand Premier League and the AFC, which provides that clubs act as companies and must also be registered as such.

2009–2017[edit]

The 2009 Thai Division 1 League was dominated from the outset by Police United. With 65 points from 30 games, the club gained their third promotion, to the Thai Premier League. The team scored a total of 76 goals. Manit Noywech, top striker of the club, reached 24 goals. After the end of the season the team had an awards reception. Chaiyong Khumpiam was named coach of the year, Sompong Yod-Ard as goalkeeper of the year and Manit Noywech striker of the year.[1]

The latter was top scorer in the 2008 AFC Champions League. With Goran Zoric another striker was added. Zoric is the first Australian in the Thai Premier League.

In January 2010, the club signed a contract with the company Insee. For the amount of 60 million baht, over a period of three years, the club was nicknamed Insee[2]

The official name of the club is Insee Police United. For the 2010 season, the stadium was changed again. The new home of the club is now the Thammasat Stadium in Pathum Thani Province north of Bangkok.
