The Perak Football Association is a football association club that formed on 18 April 1951.[1] Although a formal association was only formed in 1951, Perak FA 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 FA became the first team in 13 years to achieve back-to-back league titles in Malaysian football.

Perak FA is the only team in Malaysia that has never been demoted to a lower division since the professional league was introduced in 1989. Perak FA calls the 42,500-seat Perak Stadium 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 Perak Stadium has not been not available. The Perak FA's home ground is also sometimes referred to by its nickname, Fair Park as Perak Stadium is located near Fair Park in Ipoh where the team's office is situated.

Perak FA'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 FA introduced a team song entitled, 'Skor Yeop Skor'.

In 11 January 2014, Menteri Besar Perak, Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul 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 FA are Selangor FA, Kedah FA and Penang FA.

History[edit]

Perak FA finished the 2004 season of the Super League Malaysia in second place, behind Kedah FA. Perak FA, 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 FA 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 FA's team coach, replacing outgoing Dato' M. Karathu.[6] Fielding a youthful squad yet again, Perak FA 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 FA 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 FA'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 FA 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 FA's new team coach.

For the 2014 season, Abu Bakar Fadzim was announced as the new Perak FA's team coach, replacing Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah .[6] & 2015 season, Dato' M. Karathu was announced new Head Coach.
