The Thai Premier League (Thai: ไทยพรีเมียร์ลีก) is a Thai professional league for association football clubs. At the top of the Thai football league system, it is the country's primary football competition. Contested by 18 clubs, it operates on a system of promotion and relegation with Thai Division 1 League. The Thai Premier League is a corporation in which the 18 member clubs act as shareholders. Seasons run from March to October, with teams playing 34 games each totalling 306 games in the season. It is sponsored by Toyota and therefore officially known as the Toyota Thai Premier League. In the Thai Premier League, most of the games are played during Saturdays and Sundays, with a few games played during the weekdays.
Before the inception of Thai Premier League, the highest level of club football was the Kor Royal Cup (Thai: ถ้วย ก.) which was contested in a tournament format from 1916 to 1995. Thai Premier League was introduced in 1996 by the Football Association of Thailand (FAT), with 18 clubs who earlier competed for the Kor Royal Cup, in a double round robin league system.
The Thai Premier league originally had 10 to 12 clubs each season until 2007, when it was expanded to 16 clubs. At the end of each season, three bottom placed clubs are relegated to the Thai Division 1 League.
