Thai Farmers Bank Football Club (Thai: สโมสรฟุตบอลธนาคารกสิกรไทย) is a defunct Thai football club based in Bangkok from Kasikorn Bank (formerly Thai Farmers Bank). They have won two AFC Champions League (and the last Thai club to do so) in 1994 and 1995.

In 1997, there was a strong financial crisis in Asia, so the club sponsor's stock price dropped 49%, which resulted in them being taken over by foreign investors. The financial crisis went on, so in 2000 the club finally folded.
