A total of 12 teams are contesting the league, including 8 sides from the 2013 season, two promoted from the 2013 Malaysia FAM League and two relegated from 2013 Liga Super.

On 27 May 2013, Penang earned promotion from the 2013 Malaysia FAM League. They returned to the second division after being absent for 2 years. This is the second season that Penang are in the Premier League. This was followed by neighbours, PBAPP.
