In 2012, Faris made it to the top 52 of Nike's 'The Chance' competition, a worldwide talent hunt for young players.[3][4] However, he was not drafted in the selection of the final 16 in Barcelona.[5] Faris played for the Young Lions prior to featuring for LionsXII in the Malaysia Super League. He was a former Loyang Secondary Student.[6]

Club career[edit]

Faris began his professional football career with Under-23 side Young Lions in the S.League in 2010.

LionsXII[edit]

In December 2012, the FAS announced that Faris was to join the LionsXII for the 2013 Malaysia Super League (MSL). He had his most prolific season yet in 2015, scoring 11 goals in all competitions, 8 in the MSL and 2 in the 2015 Malaysia FA Cup, which was won by the LionsXII, and 1 in the 2015 Malaysia Cup.[7] He had scored the first goal in the 3-1 win over Kelatan that brought the Malaysia FA Cup to Singapore.[8] His 8 goals in the league was good enough to see him finish the season as the LionsXII's top scorer in the MSL.[9]

Home United[edit]

In 2016, although courted by high spending Tampines Rovers as well as MSL clubs Pahang and Selangor, Faris signed for Home United for the 2016 S.League campaign after the LionsXII was disbanded following the conclusion of the 2015 MSL season.[7] However, following the heights of 2015, Faris was brought down to earth by a disappointing 2016 as he was constantly plagued by injuries.[10][11]

Although he was once again wooed by some MSL sides, he chose to extend his contract with Home.[10] He started the 2017 season in sensation form, scoring 3 goals in 4 appearances in the league for Home.[12] He also has a further 4 goals in 6 games in the 2017 AFC Cup, helping his team become the first team to qualify for the zonal semi-finals.[13] The 9-3 thrashing of Brunei DPMM has to be his best game of the season as he scored 4 and assisted another 4. He eventually finished as the joint local top-scorer of the league with Shahril Ishak, amassing 11 goals in the league.[14] In total, Faris had a standout 2017, scoring 21 goals and notching 21 assists in all competitions, earning him an S.League Player of the Year nomination.[15]

PKNS[edit]

On 5 January 2018, Faris signed a contract with Malaysia Super League club PKNS.[16] He scored his first goal for his new club in a 3–4 defeat to Kedah FA. He had a good first season with PKNS, finishing joint-second top scorer for his team with 6 league goals to his name.[17]

He was also linked up again with former PKNS FC teammates Safee Sali as well as Khyril Muhymeen, whom joined the club in December 2018. However, after revelation of Perlis financial difficulties and subsequent exclusion from the Malaysian league, Faris opted to terminate his contract in January 2019.
