Muangthong United Coach Dragan Talajic has been putting the squad through fitness and skill exercises at the MTUTD practice grounds. Most players have returned from their season break to resume training with the squad, and the collection of 27 athletes have been putting in spirited work outs as they prepare for the 2015 season. The sessions have also featured new players hoping to earn a place on the roster, though no decisions have been made at this time as to new signings.
The season is scheduled to kick off mid-February, and Muangthong have drawn Nakon Ratchasima F.C. for their first fixture. United is expected to play this first fixture against the Swatcats in Korat on February 14, 2015.
The clubs have met before, with Muangthong United defeating the Swatcats 2-1 in Thai FA Cup action last season. The Swatcats have earned promotion to the Thai Premier League for the 2015 season after finishing 1st place in Division 1.
