Rajasthan United FC had finished in 7th position in the 22/23 I-League season and went all the way to the Quarterfinals in the 2022 Durand Cup where they had been eliminated by ISL side Hyderabad FC.

The key players like Joseba Beitia, Hardik Bhatt, Nikum Gyamar, and Martin Chaves leaving them was one of the main reasons why their efforts for ISL promotion failed last season. But they will look to push harder for promotion to the ISL 24/25 season with the help of ongoing reinforcements.
