The 2014 Liga Super (English: 2014 Super League) also known as the Astro Liga Super for sponsorship reasons is the 11th season of the Liga Super, the top-tier professional football league in Malaysia.[1]

The season was held from 17 January and concluded in 25 June 2014.[1]

The Liga Super champions for 2014 was Johor Darul Ta'zim.[1]

Major changes[edit]

The following are the key changes of 2014 Liga Super season as compared to the previous season:

  • The 2014 Piala Sumbangsih match between LionsXII and Pahang will also be a Liga Super match. Results of the 90-minute match will be counted towards the league table classification. The last time this happened was during the 2011 Liga Super season.
  • Goal-line referees will be introduced in selected matches during the season, and will be fully implemented for all matches in the 2015 Liga Super season if the feedback is positive.[2]
  • A total of 4 foreign players can be registered by Liga Super teams, including at least one player from AFC countries. A maximum of 3 foreign players can be fielded at one time in a match. The announcement was made by FAM during the exco meeting in November 2013, following a decision to upgrade the foreign players quota from 2 in 2013 to 3 in the April 2013 meeting.[3]

Teams[edit]

A total of 12 teams compete in the 2014 season which includes the top 10 teams that participated in the 2013 season and champions and runners-up of the 2013 Liga Premier.

Felda United and Negeri Sembilan were relegated at the end of the 2013 Liga Super season after finishing in the bottom place of the league table.

2012 Liga Premier unbeaten champions Sarawak and runners-up Sime Darby secured direct promotion to the Liga Super.
