History[edit]

Prior to the Football Association of Selangor being formally established, there was only the AFL (Selangor Association Football League, formed in 1905).

In 1926, association officials formed an association called Selangor Football Association (SFA).

Dispute between the AFL and the SFA continued almost ten years before the two sides returned to the negotiating table for the betterment of football. Finally both associations joined officially on February 22, 1936, under the name of the Football Association of Selangor.

FAS original headquarter was at the old MCA building in Jalan Ampang, before the construction of Wisma FAS in 1973 at the Merdeka Stadium on Datuk Harun Idris own efforts (also Chief Minister of Selangor at the time) and team manager, Tan Sri Hamzah Abu Samah. In the mid-1990s, FAS moved again to Wisma FAS in Kelana Jaya until now.

Between those responsible for the success of the Red Yellow team are the likes of the presidents: Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, Datuk Harun Idris, Datuk Aini Taib, Tan Sri Muhammad Haji Muhammad Taib, Tengku Ahmad Shah; team managers: Tan Sri Hamzah Abu Samah, Mohd Noor Thursday, Mazlan Harun, Dr Nordin Selat, Datuk Mokhtar Ahmad; coaches: M Chandran, Khaidir Buyong, Ken Worden and many other characters that are not mentioned here.

The state also has many football stars who brought glory to the country and the nation as Abdul Ghani Minhat, the legend of the late Mokhtar Dahari, Santokh Singh, Zainal Abidin Hassan, Wong Choon Wah, Arthur Goh, Soh Chin Aun, R. Arumugam, Khan Hung Meng, Azman Adnan and many more.[4]
