After rebranding in 2012, Johor Darul Ta'zim FC also implied a new nickname Southern Tigers (Malay: Harimau Selatan), an idea from Johor FA President which mean as a top professional football player who represented the club in Johor Darul Ta'zim FC. [2]

History[edit]

Early years (1972–1996)[edit]

Originally founded as Kelab Bolasepak Perbadanan Kemajuan Ekonomi Negeri Johor (PKENJ FC) and established under the auspices of the PKENJ Recreation Bureau, the club participated in state football competitions before it was admitted to the Malaysia football league in 1988. In 1994, PKENJ FC won its first FAM Cup title, and this feat was repeated again in 1995.

[3]

The Johor FC era (1996–2011)[edit]

Because a good record by PKENJ FC, in 1996 Johor Corporation (state funded cooperation) decided to takeover the club, changing its name to Johor Football Club (Johor FC), unfortunately only managed to become runner-up in the 1996 season.

In 1997, Johor FC was promoted to the second tier Malaysian football league, the Malaysia Premier League (which was then known as the Premier-Two League), and won the title in 2001.[4] After two years in top division of the league, Johor FC were relegated to Malaysia Premier League during the 2002–03 season.[5] The club earned an automatic promotion to the Super League during the 2006–07 season after FAM's decision to expand the league to 14 teams and was respectively a regular top 6 finisher in the league. The club was the first club team in Malaysian football league to enter Malaysia Cup in 2000 under former British manager, Bruce Stowell. Malaysia Cup was previously dominated by state teams and by defeating ATM on aggregate in the second-round group qualification, the club itself has marked another record in the division. The club has also participated in AFC Cup in 2009 replacing Negeri Sembilan of which the latter qualified but did not proceed to compete in the competition.[6]

Revolution (2012–present)[edit]

Johor Football Association (also known as Johor FA) failed to secure promotion to the Malaysia Super League in the 2013 season, by the end of November 2012, it was speculated that a take over between Johor Cooperation (Johor FC) and Johor FA was in place for Johor Football Club. In December 2012, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim Johor FA President announced that Johor Football Club is 100 Percent owned and controlled by Johor FA. The club name also will changed to Darul Takzim FC (Johor) later on as Johor Darul Ta'zim Football Club.[7]

Johor FA aims to create young Johorean talent to supply to Johor Darul Ta'zim FC as a clear step forward in moulding the future of the club. Thus, it implemented a 5-year plan which was distributed publicly through the media as invitation to join forces to create more talent pool. In earlier 2013 Tan Sri Annuar Musa and few Football Association president in Malaysia visit Johor FA headquarters and praised the program.

Fully supported and back boned by Sultan of Johor, JDT under flag of Johor FA pouring large scales investment to acquired Stadium Tan Sri Hassan Yunos (also known as Larkin Stadium) and officially owned by end of 2011. Larkin Stadium was once again upgraded and refurbished since 1990.

However, In mid 2013 he chose to resign due to differences in football philosophy and his position was succeeded by Bojan Hodak, the former Kelantan head coach.[8]

JDT also signed a professional coach team from Spain led by César Ferrando Jiménez but later changed to another professional coach team from Croatia led by Rajko Magić. The main problem with César Ferrando Jiménez is due to the language differences between him and the team. This marriage between the two did not last long.[9]
