The Malaysia Super League (MSL) was introduced in 2004. It replaced the M-League as the top-most tier for professional Malaysian football clubs.

The season kicked off on 14 February 2004. Pahang FA dominated the season and ended up winning the title by a wide margin and this was down to their efforts in securing the services of the nation's top players prior to the start of the new season. Pahang FA's Indra Putra Mahayuddin was the season's top goalscorer with 15 goals. He remains, until this day, the last Malaysian to win that accolade.

The highest scoring match of the season was Perlis FA 6–2 defeat of Kedah FA on 31 July 2004.

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