The Malaysia Premier 1 League was introduced in 1998. It replaced the M-League as the top-most tier for professional Malaysian football clubs.

The season kicked off on January 19, 2002. Perak FA dominated the season and ended up winning the title. Perak FA's Muhamad Khalid Jamlus was the season's top goalscorer with 17 goals.

A plus point was the surprisingly strong finish of club side Johor FC. At this time, the Football Association of Malaysia were trying to promote clubs as the future of Malaysian football.
