The Malaysia women's national team is Malaysia's national women's football team and is controlled by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM). The team represents Malaysia in international women's football. The Malaysian team is now nicknamed as Harimau Malaysia.


The Malaysia women's U-19 national team previously were under fire after a miserable run in AFC U-19 Championship in Kuala Lumpur. After that, the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) decided to take in the team for better management.

In 2005, the country was one of seven teams that included Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia, Timor-Leste, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar and Singapore, that were expected to field a women's football team to compete at the Asian Games in Marikina in December.[1]

New era

Consequently, FAM has planned to set up the first women football league in Malaysia. It is planned to be named Women Division 1 and Women Super League.



Similar to the men's team, the national team kit was manufactured by Adidas from the 1970s, who also sponsored the national team kit. Since 2007, the official Malaysia team kit has been manufactured by Nike. The home kit's design of black and yellow stripes is a throwback to the kit used by Malaysian national team of the 1920s. The great national team of the 1970s also sported similar stripes, which are supposed to be reminiscent of the stripes of a tiger, the symbol of Malaysia's national football team. Since November 2010, Nike Malaysia has replaced Adidas as the team kit sponsor.[2]
