Perak has sent a football team to play in Malaya Cup since its inaugural season in 1921. They were also one of the founding members of the Malayan Football Association (the predecessor to the modern Football Association of Malaysia) in 1926. However, the team was not officially registered until 18 April 1951, when the newly formed governing body of Perak football, the Perak Amateur Football Association (PAFA), took over its management. Since then, the football team competed the Malaya Cup consistently.
Perak is the only team in Malaysia that has never been demoted to a lower division since the Malaysian football league competition was introduced in 1982.
Perak finished the 2004 season of the Super League Malaysia in second place, behind Kedah FA. Perak, having played well all season, had been the league leaders and favourites going into the final two matches, but a 2–2 draw with Terengganu FA in their penultimate match enabled Kedah FA to pip them to the title. At the end of the season, team management announced that it would not retain several senior players who were originally contracted until October 2007 due to financial constraints.
Perak started the 2008 season by losing several key players, including midfielder Yusri Che Lah, Abdoulaye Traoré, Vedran Kukoc and top scorer Keita Mandjou. They did, however, manage to secure the services of national player Mohammad Hardi Jaafar from the now-defunct Melaka TMFC. On 9 November, they announced the arrivals of two Chilean players, Mario Berrios and Jorge Munoz. It emerged at the end of the season that the team were facing financial difficulties, resulting in an exodus of a majority of their players. The team was also unable to retain the services of their foreign players due to a new ruling introduced by the Football Association of Malaysia.
For the 2010 season, Yang Mulia Raja Azlan Shah Raja So'ib was announced as the new Perak's team coach, replacing outgoing Dato' M. Karathu. Fielding a youthful squad yet again, Perak endured a difficult 2010 season, finishing eleventh with 30 points from 26 matches. Once again, they were failed to make it from the group stage of the Malaysia Cup and were eliminated from the Malaysia FA Cup in the second round.
On 25 October 2010, Tuan Haji Norizan Bakar was appointed the new coach. Once again, Perak will be using with a youthful team for the 2011 season, with nearly 70 percent of the squad's players being between the ages of 17 and 25, but also featuring experienced former internationals such as Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli, Mohd Nasril Mat Nourdin, Chan Wing Hoong and Shahrulnizam Mustapa.
On 19 July 2012, it was announced that Jang Jung will take over his former team Perak's head coach position from Norizan Bakar on an interim basis until the end of the 2012 Malaysia Cup campaign. His spell with Perak was a disappointing one, recording only one win, while suffering three draws and two defeats in six Malaysia Cup group stage matches, failing to qualify to the quarter-finals. His contract was not renewed after the Malaysia Cup exit.
On 15 October 2012, Mohd Azraai Khor Abdullah was announced as Perak's new team coach.
