The Perak Football Association is a football association that supervises football in the state of Perak, formed on 18 April 1951.[1] Although a formal association was only formed in 1951, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association has actually had a football team since 1921,[2] which participated in the Malaya Cup (later HMS Malaya Cup, known today as the Malaysia Cup). They were also one of the founding members of the Malayan Football Association (the predecessor of the modern Football Association of Malaysia) which happened in 1926.

They are the third most successful team in the Malaysia Cup competition with 7 wins and 11-second-place finishes. They won the last of their 7 titles in 2000 and were runners-up in the 2007 edition. In 2003, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association became the first team in 13 years to achieve back-to-back league titles in Malaysian football.

Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association is the only team in Malaysia that has never been demoted to a lower division since the professional league was introduced in 1989. Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association calls the 42,500-seat Stadium Perak as its home ground, although it has played some matches at the 15,000-seat Lumut Stadium (inside the Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) base in Lumut, Perak) whenever Stadium Perak has not been not available. The Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's home ground is also sometimes referred to by its nickname, Fair Park as Stadium Perak is located near Fair Park in Ipoh where the team's office is situated.

Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's nickname is Seladang which is the Malay name for Gaur. A favourite tagline of its supporters is Kejor Yeop Kejor, which roughly translates to "Chase It, Brother, Chase". The tagline was adopted by the team after the state government used it as their tagline for the 1996 Sukma Games. In 2007, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association introduced a team song entitled, 'Skor Yeop Skor'.

In 11 January 2014, Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir has launch a new logo, Tagline "Kejor Yeop Skor" and a new nickname for Perak that is "The Bos Gaurus" which is a species of Indian Bison.

The main rivals of Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association are Selangor FA, Kedah FA and Penang FA.

History[edit]

Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association finished the 2006 season of the Super League Malaysia in second place, behind Kedah FA. Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association, having played well all season, had been the league leaders and favourites going into the final two matches, but a 2–2 draw with Terengganu FA in their penultimate match enabled Kedah FA to pip them to the title. At the end of the season, team management announced that it would not retain several senior players who were originally contracted until October 2007 due to financial constraints.[3]

Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association started the 2008 season by losing several key players, including midfielder Yusri Che Lah, Abdoulaye Traoré, Vedran Kukoc and top scorer Keita Mandjou. They did, however, manage to secure the services of national player Mohammad Hardi Jaafar from the now-defunct Melaka TMFC. On 9 November, they announced the arrivals of two Chilean players, Mario Berrios and Jorge Munoz. It emerged at the end of the season that the team were facing financial difficulties, resulting in an exodus of a majority of their players.[4] The team was also unable to retain the services of their foreign players due to a new ruling introduced by the Football Association of Malaysia.[5]

For the 2010 season, Yang Mulia Raja Azlan Shah Raja So'ib was announced as the new Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's team coach, replacing outgoing Dato' M. Karathu.[6] Fielding a youthful squad yet again, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association endured a difficult 2010 season, finishing eleventh with 30 points from 26 matches. Once again, they were failed to make it from the group stage of the Malaysia Cup and were eliminated from the Malaysia FA Cup in the second round.

On 25 October 2010, Tuan Haji Norizan Bakar was appointed the new coach.[7] Once again, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association will be using with a youthful team for the 2011 season, with nearly 70 percent of the squad's players being between the ages of 17 and 25, but also featuring experienced former internationals such as Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli, Mohd Nasril Mat Nourdin, Chan Wing Hoong and Shahrulnizam Mustapa.[8]

On 19 July 2012, it was announced that Jang Jung will take over his former team Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's head coach position from Norizan Bakar on an interim basis until the end of the 2012 Malaysia Cup campaign.[3] His spell with Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association was a disappointing one, recording only one win, while suffering three draws and two defeats in six Malaysia Cup group stage matches, failing to qualify to the quarter-finals. His contract was not renewed after the Malaysia Cup exit.

On 15 October 2012, Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah was announced as Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's new team coach.

For the 2014 season, Abu Bakar Fadzim was announced as the new Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association's team coach, replacing Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah .[6]

Stadium Perak is a stadium located in Kampung Simee in Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. It is part of a large complex called the DBI Sports Complex, which houses a majority of sporting facilities used by players representing the state of Perak such as the Velodrome Rakyat (cycling), Indera Mulia Stadium (indoor stadium) and the Sultan Azlan Shah Stadium (hockey).

The stadium was further upgraded in 1997.[10] for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. It was further renovated in 1999 at a cost of RM 1,949,000 by the Perak state government. It was put under the administration of the Ipoh City Council, which oversees the general upkeep of the stadium until this day.

Since the last refurbishment in 1997, the capacity of the stadium is 42,500[11] and it boasts a press box and a VIP-area which is normally used by the Sultan of Perak. The stadium features a FIFA standard football pitch and an IAAF-certified synthetic running track. The stadium also has monochromatic video matrix scoreboard.

The stadium has grandstand seating and normal seating. Only the grandstand seats are sheltered from the elements.

The stadium has a notoriously problematic floodlight system. There are four floodlight towers surrounding the stadium and about 50% fail to light up when it is needed. Poor pitch conditions are also a norm at this stadium and coaches are known to have publicly voiced their discontent over this issue.

However, the issue was settled comprehensively and the light towers are upgraded to international football standard. On 7 May 2013, Perak FA defeated Negeri Sembilan FA 2–1 in a Malaysian Super League match in the first sporting event after the stadium floodlights upgrading.

Future planning[edit]

Regarding to Football Association of Malaysia's planning to privatising Malaysia Super League, Malaysia Premier League and Malaysia FAM League in accordance to the Asian Football Confederation's standards, Perak Darul Ridzuan Football Association will be registering a subsidiary entity, "Perak Football Club" (Perak F.C.) to participating in Malaysia's football seasons starting from 2014 season.[12][13]
