The 2005 season of the Super League Malaysia was the second since its inception in 2004. It kicked off on 29 January 2005.

Like Pahang FA before them, Perlis FA won the title easily, leaving the defending champions a huge 10 points behind. Penang FA escaped relegation on goal difference, having let in 4 goals less than Public Bank FC. The best club side was Selangor MPPJ.

The top goalscorer award was jointly won by Perlis FA's Zacharia Simukonda and Sabah FA's Julio Cesar. Both scored 18 goals. The highest number of goals featured in a match throughout the season was six. Four matches ended with six goals.

The end of the season was marred by turmoil after Public Bank FC announced it would pulled out from the League, having been relegated. The team was eventually banned from all FAM competitions.[1]
