Penang relegated to second-tier Malaysia League

Penang has been relegated to second-tier Malaysia Premier League next year.

The club’s fate has been sealed following the 2-0 home defeat to T-Team on Wednesday.

This has been the club’s second relegation from Malaysia Super League. In 2010, the Black Panther languished in Premier League after 18 consecutive spells in the top flight of Malaysian football.

The club continued to decline and in 2011 they were relegated to third-tier FAM League after collecting 4 points after 22 matches in the second division.

In the past, Penang had established itself as a major force in Malaysian football between the 1950s to the 1970s.

Domestically, Penang has won a record of 3 Division 1 titles, 4 Malaysia Cup titles, 5 Malaysia FAM League titles, 1 Malaysia FA Cup title and 1 Malaysia Charity Shield.
