The announcement was made by FAM during the exco meeting in November 2013, following a decision to upgrade the foreign players quota from 2 in 2013 to 3 in the April 2013 meeting.[1]

Teams

A total of 12 teams are contesting the league, including 8 sides from the 2013 season, two promoted from the 2013 Malaysia FAM League and two relegated from 2013 Malaysia Super League.

On 27 May 2013, Penang earned promotion from the 2013 Malaysia FAM League. They returned to the second division after being absent for 2 years. This is the second season that Penang are in the Premier League. This was followed by neighbours, PBAPP. The two teams replace Betaria and Kuala Lumpur who were all relegated to the 2014 Malaysia FAM League.
