Football Association of Selangor (Malay: Persatuan Bolasepak Selangor), commonly known as FA Selangor, is a Malaysian professional football club based in the city of Shah Alam and competes in the Malaysian Super League, the top flight of Malaysian football. Nicknamed The Red Giants, the club was founded in 1936 and play their home games in the 18,000-capacity Shah Alam Stadium.[1]

Selangor is the most successful club in Malaysia, in terms of overall titles won. Domestically, Selangor have won a record 33 Malaysia Cups, 6 Malaysia Super League titles, 2 Malaysia Premier League titles, 7 Malaysia FAM League titles, 5 FA Cups, 8 Charity Cups, 5 President Cups, 2 Youth League titles, 7 Malay King's Gold Cup and 1 Agong's Cup.[2] The club is also the first Malaysian team to enter a continental tournament and its final by becoming the runner-up of the 1967 Asian Champion Club Tournament, the first edition of the Asian top-flight continental club tournament, which is later rebranded as the AFC Champions League in 2002. 1997, 2005 & 2009 were the most successful years for Selangor. In 1997 they won four trophies (Charity Cup, FA Cup and Malaysia Cup) and runner-up for the Agong's Cup under the coaching of Steve Wicks. In 2005 they won three trophies (Premiere League, FA Cup and Malaysia Cup) under the coaching of Dollah Salleh while in 2009 K. Devan leads them winning three trophies (Charity Cup, Super League and FA Cup).

The club also holds several rivalries, most notably with Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

History[edit]

Before the Football Association of Selangor was formally established, there were only associations that managed the internal state league, called the SAFL (Selangor Association Football League), which was founded in 1905. The first cup held was sponsored by the British Resident of Selangor, RG Watson. There were also reports the association was led by British Residents at that time.

In 1926, the internal political crisis had led some officials to withdraw the association set up a separate association named Selangor Football Association (SFA). The dispute between the SAFL and the SFA continued almost ten years before the two sides back to the negotiating table for the betterment of Selangor state football. Finally, the two associations merged officially on February 22, 1936, under the name of the Football Association of Selangor (FAS) or Persatuan Bola Sepak Selangor.

But the outbreak of the Second World War slowed down FAS's efforts to develop domestic football. The effort was started aggressively as soon as the war ended, the first official FAS president was none other than Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj.

Efforts to uphold the state football continued with FAS planning the construction of a typical football stadium for the team. Selangor who earlier used the Selangor Field Club (now Dataran Merdeka) as their home clearly requires a stadium in line with the association. FAS met the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur several times for permission on construction of the stadium but has is still not found a solution absolutely yet. The dream to see Selangor in action in the stadium itself seemed fainter by the day.

However, the appointment of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (currently holds the presidency of both FAS and FAM) as the next Prime Minister of the newly independent Malaya pioneered back in the stadium construction business. Tunku ordered the construction of the Merdeka stadium to celebrate the country's independence as well as the official Selangor FA stadium. Merdeka Stadium will also be the official national stadium in organizing international sports.

The name that is synonymous with football in Selangor on the 1960s is Harun Idris. He became president of the Football Association of Selangor for 21 years from 1961 to 1982. During his leadership, Selangor won 15 Malaysia Cups as well as doing a lot of positive changes to the association.[3]

FAS was originally headquartered at the Old MCA building in Jalan Ampang long before the construction of Wisma FAS in 1973 at the Merdeka Stadium on Datuk Harun's own efforts (also Chief Minister of Selangor at the time) and team manager, Hamzah Abu Samah. In the mid-1990s, FAS moved to Wisma FAS in Kelana Jaya today.

Since its inception in 1936, Selangor has won 33 Malaysia Cups, most recently being in 2015, champions of Malaysia Super League 6 times, 5 times FA Cup winners and being the only Malaysian team that made it to the Asian Club Cup final making it the most successful team in local football arena.

Among those who are responsible for the success of Selangor are the presidents: Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, Harun Idris, Mohd. Aini Taib, Muhammad Muhammad Taib, Tengku Ahmad Shah, Abdul Khalid Ibrahim ; team managers: Hamzah Abu Samah, Mohd Noor Khamis, Nordin Selat, Mazlan Harun, Abdul Mokhtar Ahmad, Mohamad Satim Diman, Zakaria Abdul Rahim ; team coaches: Abdul Ghani Minhat, M. Chandran, Chow Kwai Lam, Khaidir Buyong, Ken Worden, Steve Wicks, Dollah Salleh, K. Devan and many others that are not mentioned here.

The state also has many football stars who brought success to the state and the country such as the late Mokhtar Dahari, R. Arumugam, Abdul Ghani Minhat and Wong Choon Wah. Santokh Singh, Soh Chin Aun, Zainal Abidin Hassan, Azman Adnan, Rusdi Suparman, Mohd Amri Yahyah and many others.[4]

Merdeka Stadium[edit]

Selangor have used several grounds during their history. The club's first ground was the Selangor Club Field (now known as Dataran Merdeka) where they played from their founding in 1936 until the independence of Malaya in 1957. In September 1956, Selangor's president, and also Malaysia's first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, ordered the construction of the Merdeka Stadium to celebrate the country's upcoming independence as well as to be used as the new home stadium for the Red Giants. The stadium finished construction on 21 August 1957 and was inaugurated on 31 August 1957, the day Malaya declared independence from British rule. Right after the declaration of independence, Selangor moved its home matches to the Merdeka Stadium, which would become the club's home ground for 38 years until 1994. The first football match in the stadium took place on 1 September 1957 which saw Malaya defeat Burma 5-2 in a friendly match. In this stadium, which hosted 20,000 spectators, Selangor celebrated its first Malaysian league title in 1980.

Shah Alam Stadium[edit]

After some successes, the club management decided that the Merdeka Stadium was not big enough for the ambitions of the club, and thus a new stadium was built and inaugurated on 16 July 1994. This was the Shah Alam Stadium as it is known today, which could host an astounding amount of 80,372 supporters, and became the club's home stadium for 22 years until 2016. The first match at the stadium was played between Selangor and Scottish club Dundee United in an invitational tournament, which resulted in a 1-1 draw, with the first goal being scored by Billy McKinlay. Other teams in the tournament were Bayern Munich, Leeds United, the Australian Olympic team "Olyroos", and Flamengo, who won the tournament.

Selayang Stadium[edit]

In 2017, an internal crisis occurred within the club management, which resulted in the resignation of the club's president, Azmin Ali, also the Menteri Besar of Selangor at the time. The crisis began when executive members of the club reportedly rejected the notion of privatisation, which was suggested by the club's president at the time, Mohamed Azmin Ali.[9] The crisis caused the club to change its home ground to the MP Selayang Stadium after the Selangor state government denied the club access to use their traditional home ground, the Shah Alam Stadium.[10][11]

Kuala Lumpur Stadium[edit]

The following year, the club management of Selangor decided to switch the club's home ground to the Kuala Lumpur Stadium for the 2018 season onwards.[12] The club's president, Subahan Kamal, stated that the Kuala Lumpur Stadium could generate a higher income and that the Selayang Stadium did not meet the needed lighting criteria required by the FMLLP.[13] Selangor originally proposed to use the club's traditional home ground, the Shah Alam Stadium and the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. However, both applications were rejected by the Selangor state government and the FMLLP respectively, with the latter's reason being that certain matches could collide with the Malaysia national football team's calendar.[14]

Training ground[edit]

Selangor's training ground is the Padang MSN, located in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Selangor will be using the facility as the club's training ground for 2017 onwards, as the club's original training ground, the SUK Training Field, is undergoing maintenance.[15]

Support[edit]

Ultrasel is the official supporters group of Selangor. Wherever Selangor play, the group will be there to support. They always gather at the Gate 2 stand in Stadium Shah Alam which they nicknamed it the Green Curva Nord.[16] Accompanied by the drumline, they will stand and chant passionately for the entire game and wave huge flags occasionally.[17]

Anak Selangor Fan Club is the second largest supporters group of Selangor. The fan club was formed by a group of loyal Selangor FA fans from many states that always gather up when the Red Giants are playing soccer. The main colours for these supporter is red and yellow, which is the official colour for all the fan clubs in Selangor. The fan club's target is to create a football academy with the help and support of former Selangor players such as Shahril Arshad, Jamsari Sabian and many more large names.[18]

Other small fan clubs that's considered as a regular in the Shah Alam Stadium is the Selangor Soccer Fan Club and Selangor Citizen Fan Club[19]

Club rivalries[edit]

Selangor has a historical derby with Singapore FA known as the Malayan El'Clasico while matches with Kuala Lumpur FA were known as the Klang Valley Derby.[20][21]

Malayan El'Clasico[edit]

The rivalry with Singapore FA was a football rivalry that occurred between 1921 till 1994. It is the oldest football derby in Malaysia. The rivalry arises from the numerous times the two teams have battled for the Malaysia Cup title. With 57 titles between them (33 for Selangor and 24 for Singapore) this fixture has become known as one of the finest Malaysia Cup match-ups in history.[22][23]

Klang Valley Derby[edit]

Selangor local rival has always been Kuala Lumpur FA. The rivalry occurred due to the two state's geographical location. Selangor FA contests a local derby between the two most developed states in Malaysia; Selangor and Federal States of Kuala Lumpur. The rivalry goes back over 40 years when it started in the 80's. The rivalry was renewed when Kuala Lumpur FA got promoted to the Malaysia Super League after a seven-year spell in the second division. KL were then relegated back to the Premier League on 2012 which was also the last meeting of the two clubs. On the following year, 2013, Kuala Lumpur again got relegated to the third-tier FAM League for the first time in its history.[24]
