Football Selangor, under the leadership of His Highness Raja Muda of Selangor is proud to announce the second season of the Selangor Champions League 2017 that will take place at Stadium Panasonic, Shah Alam this September.
Selangor Champions League was founded in 2016 by His Highness Tengku Amir Shah to raise the standards of amateur football in Selangor and showcase the best talents that community football can offer to the sport. The tournament last year hosted sixteen (16) teams, which consists of only champions and runner-ups from eight (8) different leagues in Selangor. The first edition was a huge success and was well received by not only the participating teams but also by the community football at large. Many have attributed this to the prestige, high standards and extensive media coverage of last year’s Selangor Champions League.
Following the first edition, more leagues and parties have expressed interest to be a part of SCL2017.
