HistoryEdit

The club was established in 2008 as Pos Malaysia Football Club, by the national postal company Pos Malaysia Berhad [1]. Then in 2011, DRB-HICOM acquired the business from the government's investment arm, Khazanah Nasional,[4] and in 2012, efforts began to take root to adopt the DRB-HICOM brand as the club's name. This was finalised in 2014, and the club's current name was formalised.

A year after its formation, Pos Malaysia FC played in the FAM Cup[5][circular reference], the third-tier of the Malaysian Football League. The debut season was a successful one, emerging as champions of the 8-team tournament.

En route, they recorded a W-D-L record of 11-3-2, scoring 29 goals and letting in 11. Promotion to the second tier Malaysia Premier League in 2010 was approved after Football Association of Malaysia's Local Competitions Committee approved the promotion. Their debut season in the league saw Pos FC finishing the season in eighth place in the 12-team competition. Subsequently, their performance was as follows:

2011 - 9th place

2012 - 7th place

2013 - 6th place

2014 (as DRB-HICOM FC) - 7th place

2015 - 10th place

2016 (final professional season) - 7th place

The company sees the existence of the club as an internal corporate social responsibility effort. It presents employees with a platform to showcase their other talents, which can potentially become an important avenue to uncover and nurture talents within the Group. These players can go on to become stars in the local as well as regional football arena in the future.

Since its inception, as a professional club, DRB-HICOM FC attracted local players and international footballers from Nigeria, Japan, Croatia, Ghana, Denmark and South Korea to don DRB-HICOM FC's colours and to continue building the club's reputation in the domestic league. Now as an amateur club, more locals are signed as players. In the 2017/18 season, it only had one foreign player.
