HistoryEdit

Majlis Perbandaran Muar Football Club or MP Muar is owned by the Muar Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Muar). For the 2011 Malaysia Premier League season, the club has been using the JCorp Stadium in Pasir Gudang, Johor Bahru as their home ground. The club returned to Sultan Ibrahim Mini Stadium as their home ground for the 2012 Malaysia Premier League.

At the end of 2012 league season, MP Muar finished in ninth place and had to play relegation play-off match with Betaria, the tenth place team. Although MP Muar won the match 3-0, the team later decided to pull out of the league after the re-structuring plan by JFA, along with another club from Johor, MBJB.[1]

Acquisitions, Mergers, and TakeoversEdit

In 2012, HRH Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, the JFA's Royal Patron, announced that JFA will take over all football clubs and associations in the state of Johor which compete in any football cup competitions in Malaysia. Hence, MP Muar technically closed by Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) and withdrew from 2012 Malaysia Premier League. All selected players and managers was then transferred to JFA under a club Johor Darul Ta'zim based on ability and experiences.[2]

The MP Muar President squad, the youth team was also absorbed into JDT II and later to JDT IV.[3]

Under Mutual of Understanding and Agreements, MP Muar will now only compete in state level competition, the PBNJ State League and served a purpose of creating talent pool for local football scene. As of 2013, the team played in the Johor state league before being dissolved.[4]
