HistoryEdit

In 2013, The Football Association of Malaysia agreed to replace Harimau Muda A with Harimau Muda B in the 2013 S.League campaign. Instead, Harimau Muda A will undergo an 8-month long training in central Europe and will be mainly based at Zlaté Moravce, Slovakia to prepare to defend their title in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games. Harimau Muda B will use aged under-20 players for the S. League with no foreign players and will be based in the Pasir Gudang Stadium, replacing Yishun Stadium as their previous home stadium.

In addition, Harimau Muda C was formed to provide a bigger pool of players and become a feeder team for Harimau Muda B, as Harimau Muda B did to Harimau Muda A. Harimau Muda C will make their debut in the 3rd Division of Malaysian football, the FAM League and will use under-18 aged players.
