The Malaysia FA Cup (Malay: Piala FA) is an annual national knock–out football tournament in Malaysia. The cup was first held in 1990. The competition was previously managed by Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) before it was transferred to Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) in the 2016 season.

The cup is contested among the clubs from the Malaysia Super League, Malaysia Premier League, and Malaysia FAM League. The first round is played between the clubs qualified from the FAM League. The winners advance to the second round and joins the rest of the clubs.

The tournament was introduced during the Liga Semi-Pro era in 1990.[1] The first winner of the competition is Perak who beat Selangor 4–2 in the final at Merdeka Stadium, Kuala Lumpur.

In 2016, FMLLP has taken over the management of the competition from Football Association of Malaysia (FAM).[2] For 2016 season, there will be 32 teams competing in the tournament with 12 teams each from Liga Super and Liga Premier while the other 8 teams will be decided with a play-off within Malaysia FAM League teams.[3]

Logo evolution[edit]

Since the inception of the league in 1990, numerous logo has been introduced for the cup to reflect the sponsorship purpose. Dunhill was the title sponsor for the competition until the agreement was ended at the end of 2004 season as tobacco advertising was banned in the country.[4] From 2005 to 2010, the Piala FA incorporated the TM brand as part of its logo as the title sponsor.[5] After the end of TM sponsorship for seven consecutive years, FAM has been partnering with Astro Media as strategic partner for Malaysian League starting in 2011 season.[6] In 2012, FAM introduced a new logo which has been used from 2012 until the end of 2015 season. For 2016 season a new logo was introduced as part of the takeover of the league by FMLLP. Superbest Power has become the title sponsor for the tournament for 2016 season.[7][8][9] For 2017 season, FMLLP has introduced a new logo without the title sponsor.
