Relegation from TPL
Port F.C. dropped to Division 1 for the first time in 2012 thanks to the ongoing boardroom disputes. There was hardly any investment coming in for the club and it led to a team of lower quality players in the club. Thai Port failed to find the back of the net in almost half of their league games and were relegated on the penultimate round of fixtures when they lost 2–1 at home to Muang Thong United.
The team members were forced to play home games at the Supachalasai and Sarakul Stadium in during the 2010 AFC Cup since they did not have floodlights that could match the AFC criteria. Kickoffs for TPL games regularly start at 4 pm at the PAT Stadium. The club was bound to make temporary arrangements for floodlights in order to have the last 2 games of the TPL start their kick off at 6 pm.
The Stadium Impact
A very popular step taken by Thai Port F.C was that of moving into the PAT Stadium in Khlong Toei, Bangkok in 2009. It was admired by the local supporters. Attendances saw a rise with time and the club decided to have two new stands built so the capacity would double to become 12000. Match tickets cost 80 baht or 100 baht and are bought from a small ticket office next to the stadium.
"Khlong Toei Army" is what the supporters of Thai Port are often referred to as. The name Khlong Toei Army refers to Khet Khlong Toei, the location of the club. "Nakrob Sad Nam-ngurn" refers to Orange-red Blue Warrior, the Thai Port's shirt colours.
The supporters of Thai Port and Chonburi have forged a very close friendship. Many supporters of Thai Port went to the FA Cup final in 2010 wearing Thai Port colors to cheer for Chonburi against Muangthong United.
Souvenir Shop: A tribute
In the stadium grounds, there is a perfectly well stocked souvenir shop owned by the club. The shop stocks replica shirts, scarves and other merchandise for supporters to buy.\OK
