Prior to the Football Association of Selangor formally established, there were only association that manages the internal state league, known as the AFL (Selangor Association Football League) was formed in 1905. The first trophy at stake is sponsored by the British residents of Selangor state when then R.G. Watson. Even previously reported, the association led by British residents at that time.

In 1926, the internal political crisis led to some association officials withdrew separately and then formed an association called Selangor Football Association (SFA).

Dispute between the AFL and the SFA continued almost ten years before the two sides back to the negotiating table for the betterment of football country. Finally both associations joined officially on February 22, 1936, under the name of the Football Association of Selangor (FAS) or the Football Association of Selangor.

But the outbreak of the Second World War have hamper FAS efforts to develop domestic football. Efforts began aggressively once the war ended, with the first official presidential FAS is none other than the Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj.

FAS original headquarter was at the old MCA building in Jalan Ampang, before the construction of Wisma FAS in 1973 at the Merdeka Stadium on Datuk Harun Idris own efforts (also Chief Minister of Selangor at the time) and team manager, Tan Sri Hamzah Abu Samah. In the mid-1990s, FAS moved again to Wisma FAS in Kelana Jaya until now.

Between those responsible for the success of the Red Yellow team are the likes of the presidents: Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, Datuk Harun Idris, Datuk Aini Taib, Tan Sri Muhammad Haji Muhammad Taib, Tengku Ahmad Shah; team managers: Tan Sri Hamzah Abu Samah, Mohd Noor Thursday, Mazlan Harun, Dr Nordin Selat, Datuk Mokhtar Ahmad; coaches: M Chandran, Khaidir Buyong, Ken Worden and many other characters that are not mentioned here.
