All about the Malaysian Cup
The Malaysia Cup (Malay: Piala Malaysia) is a football event held in Malaysia every year. The inaugural edition of the cup was held in 1921. Despite the fact that it is the country's oldest cup event, it is presently a subsidiary cup to the Malaysia FA Cup, which is the cup that is allocated the country's continental cup competition spot. Until the 2016 season, the tournament was overseen by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) before being handed to Football Malaysia LLP (now known as Malaysian Football League (MFL)).
For the 2016 season, a new format was introduced in which only the top eleven teams from the Malaysia Super League (MSL) and five teams from the Malaysia Premier League (MPL) qualified to play in the Malaysia Cup, with the final position for qualification determined by the least number of games played in the first round of the MSL and MPL. Following the identification of all 16 teams, the teams will be placed into four groups, each of which will participate in the tournament for the cup.

Malaya wrote to the Chief Secretary of the Federated Malay States government three months later, offering two cups to be contested for in football and rugby as mementos of their gratitude for the welcome they received in Malaya. The offer was accepted, and representatives from numerous clubs convened to plan the event.
