The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) (Malay: Persatuan Bolasepak Malaysia) is the governing body for football in Malaysia, responsible for organising the Malaysian national football team and the major football and futsal tournaments within the country. The Football Association of Malaysia main headquarters is located at Wisma FAM.

Football background[edit]

Pre-Independence[edit]

Football arrived in Malaya with the British. The locals soon picked up the game, and before long it was the country's leading sport. Towards the end of the 19th century, football was one of the central pillars of most sports clubs in Malaya. But it was not structured. Even when the Selangor Amateur Football League took shape in 1905 – which ensured proper administration and organisation – the competition was confined only to clubs in the Kuala Lumpur.

Criticism[edit]

After the Asian Cup 2007, the FAM president put the blame on the players, while refusing to heed the calls for him to step down and vowed to remain in the position he has occupied since 1984.
