Football Association of Malaysia...
Malaysia Soccer Team never really get back to time of their prime period ('60s,'70s,'80s)... Right now, Malaysia rank 156 of the world ranking... what a shame...
here is a little bit of history of Football Association of Malaysia ;
in 1926, the first foundation stone for the Football Association of Malaya (FAM) was laid before it was officially founded as a national body in 1933.
First Malaysia Prime Minister - FAM President
In 1951, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj - the first Prime Minister of Malaysia - became the President.
The New Era of Modernization and Professionalism
His Royal Highness the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah was integral in the growth of football in the new era with the introduction of the semi-pro league in 1989 before the game went fully professional several years later.
Among the high points in Malaysian football under His Royal Highness was the successful hosting of the World Youth Cup in 1997 as well as the organization of the Premier League, which is to be called the Super League in 2004.
