2005

The 2005–06 season of the Super League Malaysia was the third since its inception. It kicked off on 3 December 2005. Negeri Sembilan FA emerged champions with one match to spare. They garnered 40 points from 21 matches and won the title despite scoring less goals than all the other teams in the league except Pahang FA, who finished second from bottom. With this title, they finally erased the painful memory of losing the 1996 M-League crown having topped the table for most of that season.

Their nearest rivals were Melaka TMFC with 33 points. Having been in the title contention for most parts of the season, they were the best positioned club side in MSL history after Public Bank FC in 2004.

Perak FA's Keita Mandjou was the season's top scorer with 17 goals. Three matches, including Selangor FA's 6–1 hammering at the hands of Perlis FA, featured seven goals, and these were the season's highest scoring matches.

Note: Due to a league expansion, Pahang FA and Selangor FA were entered into a Relegation Playoff.

Relegation playoffs[edit]

As a result of the Football Association of Malaysia decision to expand the league to 14 teams, the relegation playoffs were held on 18 June 2006. Six of the league's 14 places were up for grabs in this competition.

Pahang FA and Selangor FA qualified for this competition by virtue of being the lowest placed Super League Malaysia teams. Top teams from the Premier League Malaysia also qualified for this competition (except for Kedah FA and Malacca FA, who were automatically promoted by virtue of being Premier League Malaysia Champions).

The first round of matches saw Sarawak FA, Terengganu FA, Selangor FA and DPMM FC (Duli Pengiran Muda Mahkota FC) promoted.

The second round of matches saw Johor FC and Pahang FA promoted.
