Nakhon Ratchasima and Sakon Nakhon were the only two teams with previous experience in the Thai football league system. Loei City won the first ever championship and took the Regional League championship allocation, winning the division on the final day of the season. After round 16 and with only 6 more matchdays to go, Ubon United withdrew from the league and were subsequently banned by FAT for two years due to a dispute with the football federation over standards set off the field of play. This in itself caused confusion within the division itself, as initially 2-0 results were awarded to the opposition, but in the final week of the season it was announced by the football federation that all results would be declared null and void, thus a new league table being drawn up for the final game.
