Pahang Football Association (Malay: Persatuan Bolasepak Pahang) is a Malaysia professional football club based in Kuantan, Pahang. The association was found in 1959 to represent the state itself and has traditionally worn a yellow home kit since. In the beginning, their early home matches were held around the city public fields and outside Kuantan, predominantly around districts of Pahang. Early in 2016, PBNP change the name from Pahang FA to Pahang FC. Then on December 2016, the management PBNP change the name back the old ones, Pahang FA.

The lowest point of the association was in 2012, as the association had been relegated to the Malaysian Premier League. With the collective morale support from the players and the fans, Pahang FA came back from the abyss to the Malaysian Super League in 2013 after winning the play-off match against Kedah FA, just one season after being relegated.


The association has been established after the great support from locals who require a football team to represent Pahang in HMS Beagle. As the initiatives to the request, Sultan Abu Bakar has established an association known as Pahang FA. In the next year, the association begins with the preparation against another states before taking part for the first time in the HMS Beagle Cup. After a long time looking for the homeground, the Council of Kuantan announced the construction of a new stadium, Darul Makmur Stadium in 1970.

Led by legendary Jamal Nasir, Pahang FA won the first cup in 1983 when they won the Malaysia Cup, the most prestigious tournament in Malaysia football after a win over Selangor FA in the tournament, breaking the long duopoly of Selangor FA and Singapore FA and also became the first East Coast team to win it. Nonetheless, the most successful era was in 90s, when the association successfully entered the final of Malaysia Cup 4 times even though they only succeed once in 1992. The 1992 was the best year when the association won the double, the Malaysia Cup and the league. Pahang FA in that year was touted as the Dream Team when several high-profile players played for the association with the like of Dollah Salleh, Zainal Abidin Hassan, Khairul Azman Mohamed, Abdul Mubin Mokhtar, Ahmad Yusof, Australian football legend, Alan Edward Davidson and Singapore football legend, Fandi Ahmad. The association successfully defeated Kedah FA in final stage to win the Malaysia Cup, thanks to the fastest goal ever in Malaysia Cup history by Zulhamizan Zakaria.[vague] Pahang FA was also the first winner of the newly formatted M-League in 2004. As one of the most successful football team in Malaysia from 1980–2007, Pahang FA had successfully produced many talented local players from the academy such as Khairul Azman Mohamed, one of the best goal keeper in Asia in the 1990s, the prolific striker, Azizul Kamaluddin, Mohd Fadzli Saari who played in SV Wehen Wiesbaden in Germany and Muhammad Juzaili Samion who was also played for the 4th division of Ligue 1 club, FCSR Haguenau in 2000.

In 2008, many players from talented young Shahzan Muda F.C. were absorbed into Pahang FA. In 2012, Pahang FA was playing in 2nd division of M-League. While in Premier League, Pahang FA showed great improvement in the 2012 season as they qualified for the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals. Pahang FA was also a Premier League runner-up in 2012, thus enable the association to play in the "play-off" matches for the promotion to the Super League. Pahang FA beat Kedah FA in the final of the "play-off" and had been promoted to Super League in 2013. In the year 2012, the association had to play in Temerloh Mini Stadium as the homeground for the first time after the Darul Makmur Stadium was put under renovation for the organisation of Sukma 2012. A year later, the club returned to Kuantan to play in newly renovated Darul Makmur Stadium and in the same year the lifted the Malaysia Cup for third time. Led by loyal serving captain, Jalaluddin Jaafar, they ended 21 years cup drought. By winning the cup, Zainal Abidin Hassan and Dollah Salleh had cemented their status as central figure of club history, as they won it as a player and as manager and coach respectively.
