Selangor’s latest home kit pays homage to the country and the club’s best player of all time.

Selangor FC became the first club in the Malaysian league to launch their kit for the 2021 season, when they announced their home kit for the upcoming season on Monday evening.

The Red Giants’ latest home jersey is based on their iconic 1986 Malaysian Cup final jersey, which is still reproduced and worn by fans in recent years.

While the match ended in a 6-1 win for Selangor over Johor and their 27th Malaysian Cup title, perhaps more historic was the fact that it was also the last game under a Red Giants jersey for Selangor and Malaysian legend, the late Mokhtar. Dahari.

Mokhtar had appeared for Selangor a total of 375 times, scoring a total of 177 official goals. Barely five years after retiring from Selangor, the striker is said to die at the age of just 37 from motor neuron disease.

The kit retains the red, green and yellow base of the original band, with green being the official color of the Crown Prince of the state of Selangor). More interestingly, even the positions of the club crest and kitmaker emblem have been retained. The Selangor crest sits to the right of the chest while Joma’s logo crosses it, facing how they’ve been placed in recent years.
