Early years (1920–1950s)[edit]

On 21 October 1921, the club was founded. Almost all the big matches were played at Victoria Green, home of the Chinese Recreation Club. The team enter into the final of the Malaysia most prestigious football tournament, Malaysia Cup's final in 1934, but the team lost to Singapore FA with a heartbreaking score of 1–2. Penang enter into the final of the last edition of Malaysia Cup before World War II and they lost to the same opponent in 1934 with the same score. During the World War II, football competitions were stopped.

Glory days (1950s–1970s)[edit]

An era spanning the 1950s to the 1970s when Penang was among the top teams in inter-state football.

The 1950s saw Penang producing players such as the country's first Olympian, Yeap Cheng Eng, Yeang Kah Chong, Tan Swee Hock, Wong Kam Poh, Yap Hin Hean, Liew Fee Yuen, Lee Ah Loke, the Pang brothers and more. Since the early 1950s, Aziz Ahmad was Penang's top goal-getter in 1953 and 1954. He scored the winning goal when Penang defeated Singapore 3–2 in the 1953 Malaya Cup final in Ipoh. Penang won 3 Malaysia Cup champions (1953, 1954 and 1958) and 4 FAM Cup champions (1952, 1955, 1956 and 1957).

Some of the well-known FAP officials then were Loh Hoot Yeang, who was president for many years, A.S. Mohamad Mydin, Tan Cheng Hoe, Yaakob Syed and Haris Hussain.

Datuk David Choong was president in 1962 when Penang made the FAM Cup final, but lost 3–4 to Selangor in a pulsating contest on May 12 before a capacity crowd at the City Stadium.

In October 1963, Penang trounced Perlis 13–0 in a Malaysia Cup tie at the City Stadium.

Aziz took over as captain when Cheng Eng retired. The early 1960s also saw a glittering array of "stars".

By 1965, veterans such as Siang Teik and Aziz made way as Penang rebuilt. M. Kuppan took over as captain with Yeap Kim Hock, James Raju and Ibrahim Mydin the only other survivors.

For the first time, Penang also preferred the services of four Australians from the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) which participated in the local league. They were John Leather, Clive Warren, Vic Probert and Alan Peacock.

The late 1960s saw the emergence of Aziz's nephews, the Abdullah brothers—Namat and Shaharuddin. At his peak, Shaharuddin was a prolific goal-getter.

Penang made the Malaysia Cup final in 1968 to face mighty Selangor but nobody expected it to be a massacre. Selangor romped home 8–1 in one of the most one-sided finals ever.

In 1974, Penang heroically knocked Singapore out in the semifinal to face northern rival Perak in the final. Namat Abdullah led Penang to a 2–1 victory in what was to be the state's last Malaysia Cup final victory. Penang stepped into the final of Malaysia Cup on 1977 as they lost the match to Singapore.

Stagnation (1980s–mid-1990s)[edit]

Football Association of Malaysia introduced the Malaysia First Division League in 1982. Penang was one of the founding members of the league. The first edition of the league saw Penang become the champion. In 1983, Penang was the first runner-up of the league. After that, the team faced stagnation until the mid-1990s because failed to win any major trophy.

Resurgence (late 1990s–early 2000s)[edit]

The glory days came after the team faced the stagnation period for more than 15 years. Penang enter into the FA Cup final for the first time in the team history on 1997 and they lost to Selangor. After the disappointment, Penang won the 1998 Malaysia Super League. The team failed to defend the champion as they only manage to get runner-up in 1999. The 2000 FA Cup saw Penang lost to Terengganu after a nail-biting penalty shootouts. Penang was the runner-up of the top division league in 2000. After two consecutive years as the runner-up of Malaysia Super League, Penang become the champion of the league in 2001. Penang FA historically won the FA Cup for the first time on 2002 thanks to the goal scored by Gustavo Romero on the 65 minutes. Penang first attempt into the Charity Shield saw the team won the trophy after they beat Selangor.

Walking downhill and financial crisis (2003–2009)[edit]

Although the team got a good start by winning the Charity Shield, but the team only finished mid table in the league and in round two of the FA Cup. Penang finished third in the group stage of the Malaysia Cup and failed to qualify for the second round. In 2004, Penang ranked fifth out of 8 in the league and eliminated in the second round of FA Cup. Yunus Alif's boys won the group stage of Malaysia Cup but lost in second round. The league performance in 2006 is worse than 2005 as the team only ranked sixth. Penang won the first round of FA Cup, but they faild to qualify for the third round. They top the group of Malaysia Cup for two consecutive years but still can't advanced for the third round after losing the second round matches. The next season saw Penang ranked sixth again in the league and lost the first round match of FA Cup. The team lost the quarter final matches of Malaysia Cup. In 2006–07 season of Malaysia Super League, the team ranked tenth throughout the league. Penang finished the journey of FA Cup in round one. Penang finished fifth out of six in the Malaysia Cup group stage. New coach, Mohd Bakar was appointed to replace Josef Herel in the 2007–08 season. The Panthers finished 12nd[clarification needed] in the league, round two in FA Cup and last in the Malaysia Cup group stage. For the same season until 2012, the club was facing a critical financial condition. The state’s footballers had not been paid for four months, and called on the current administration to honour the contracts signed with players. In 2009, Penang FA finished third from the last in the top division league. Penang was knocked out from the FA Cup in round two for two consecutive years. Penang was eliminated from the Malaysia Cup tournament after finished third in the group stage.

Darkest period (2010–2012)[edit]

Penang was relegated from the top flight after 18 consecutive spells in the top flight of Malaysian football. The club continued to decline and in 2011 the worst fears were reached when they were relegated to FAM League after the team struggled in the second division with only collected 4 points after 22 matches. Janos Krecska was appointed as coach in 2012. The team finished mid table in the third tier end of the year.

The comeback (2013–2015)[edit]

Penang FA's legend, Merzagua Abderrazak take over as the club head coach in 2013. The aim of the club which was to promote to Malaysia Premier League achieved successfully under the tactician. Penang won a silverware after an 11 years long wait. However, they may have to leave their talismanic Moroccan coach Merzagua Abderrazzak because he needs to obtain an A-level coaching licence in his home country to be able to continue coaching.

Due to the problem, the club appointed K. Devan as the new head coach. Under his guidance Penang claimed the third spot of the Premier League and qualified into Malaysia Cup after absent for four years. Penang finished last place in the group stage with four points after six matches. K. Devan's contract has not renewed and he was signed by Negeri Sembilan.

Jacksen F. Tiago took over K. Devan as the head coach of Penang for the next season. His skills and strategies to be somehow a success to the squad when showing good performance facing with major teams in the pre-season match; Sime Darby, Johor Darul Takzim, Perak, Selangor, Kelantan. The most notable is the match versus Selangor and Kelantan which ends with the score of 2–0 favouring the home team. Penang also stepped into the quarter final of Malaysia FA Cup after 13 years. A dramatic finish in the 2015 league campaign saw Penang FA win the runner-up on Malaysian Premier League after so much struggle in 2014 and claimed a ticket to the top flight 2016 Malaysia Super League.

The club logo since 1921


Penang FA's traditional home colours are sky blue and yellow which are taken from the colours of the Penang state flag which stand for the sea surrounding the island and peace respectively. Navy blue and yellow have also been used severally. Traditional away kit colours have been either yellow or white. However, in recent years several different colours have been used, such as: green, pink and orange.

The current home jersey sports a lighter shade of blue while the away jersey is white with blue stripes. The lighter shade of blue is a better representation of the blue colour on the state flag.


Penang's traditional fanbase comes from all over the Georgetown area including the other suburbs such as Jelutong, Air Itam, Tanjung Bungah, Bayan Lepas and even from the main land. Penang's hardcore supporters are the so-called Ultras Panthers supporters, they also known as UP11. Ultras Panthers was founded in 2011. Even in every match the Penang team played, they will be found in a group standing at the supporters area. The main colours for these supporter are usually in blue with a blue-yellow scarf and banners just like the Penang's team kits colours. These supporters always bring, drums and large colorful flags to the stadiums.

There are also numerous supporters clubs such as Penang FA Fan Club, Haria Penang 69, Nindia Bandaraya, Brigade 07 and more in the state. Penang FA has an average gate of 6660 in the 2015 competitive campaign. Sometimes, tourists from foreign countries also attended the matches.

At matches, Penang fanatic fans sing chants such as "Haria Penang Haria", "Sehati Sejiwa" which means "One Heart, One Soul" and the state anthem "Untuk Negeri Kita" which means "For our state" to boost their beloved players' morale. Fans will also throw their toilet rolls to the pitch before the match begins. The well-known and popular slogan among Penang FA supporters is "Haria Penang Haria". It is used as "words of spirit" during and off the game, and as the slogan among supporters.


Penang do not have a traditional rivalry on the scale of the Singapore-Selangor rivalry. Kedah is the biggest rival for Penang. Penang fans consider their main rivalries to be with (in order): Kedah, Perak and Perlis. Matches against fellow northern region sides KSK Tambun Tulang F.C., Kuala Muda Naza F.C., Kedah United F.C., Sungai Ara F.C., PBAPP F.C., SDMS Kepala Batas F.C. and Perak YBU F.C. have only taken place intermittently, due to the clubs often being in separate divisions.


Northern Region Derby is the name given to football matches that involves Penang and Kedah. Both of them were located in the northern region of Malaysia. City Stadium or Penang State Stadium and Darul Aman Stadium will be packed by fans from Kedah and Penang during derby matches. The match usually creates a lively atmosphere, with numerous banners unfolded before the start of the game.


Although Penang's main rivals mostly are from the northern region of Malaysia, especially Kedah, but there is also a strong supporter of friendship with Kedah and there are good relations with the fans of Perlis and Perak. "This is Utara", which means "This is the northern region" is a slogan which shows their good friendships.

Umbro is the club's kit manufacturer since 2014.

Penang faced their biggest financial crisis from 2010–2011, this is due to poor management under the leadership of Datuk Seri Mohamed Zahrain Hashim. FAP was also troubled with debts and players' salary payments were reportedly delayed two to three months over the two years. The delayed salary payments were said to have led some players to take money from bookies to give away games. The poor performance of the Penang team, languishing at the bottom of the Premier League table, also kicked up storm at the Penang State Legislative Assembly in May 2011.
