TM Malaysia Premier League is the second-tier football league in Malaysia.

Between 1998 to 2003, the second-tier league existed as the Malaysia Premier Two League, below the top-flight Malaysia Premier One League. In 2004, it was relaunched as the Malaysia Premier League, and the top-tier league was renamed the Malaysia Super League.

Between 2004 and 2006, the professional football league in Malaysia was divided into three groups:

  1. First Division: Malaysia Super League
  2. Second Division: Malaysia Premier League Group A
  3. Second Division: Malaysia Premier League Group B

At the end of the season, the top team from each group of the Premier League was promoted to the Malaysia Super League. The teams which finished bottom of each group were relegated to the National League Malaysia. The two group champions also faced-off to determine the Malaysia Premier League Championship.

For the 2006-07 season, the Malaysia Premier League was reorganised into a single league of 11 teams instead of being a competition involving two separate groups of teams.



The Malaysia Premier League 2010 season will have 12 playing for promotion to the Malaysia Super League. The teams are:-

¹ - promoted from FAM Cup League Malaysia
² - relegated from Super League Malaysia
