Registering new players
All players must be registered in the Liga Suparimau Admin App before they play

Teams will need to provide the following information about their players:

  • Full name
  • Date of Birth
  • IC/Passport number
  • Player photo
  • Player jersey number

Once players have been registered in the Liga Suparimau Admin App they will be able to play in Liga Suparimau. Any players who are not registered on the admin app will not be able to play in Liga Suparimau.

Teams will have to abide by the squad size limitations as set out in the competition formats. Teams may add to their squad throughout the season with new players until they reach their squad capacity. 

Once a player has been verified they will not be able to be removed from the team’s squad for the season.


Matchday check-in
On the first match day of the season, every player will be required to show their original IC/Passport to verify their registration. If players are unable to verify their registration they will not be allowed to play. 

If players are not registered in the Liga Suparimau Admin app they will not be allowed to play until they have registered and been verified.

Teams are advised to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes before their match to register their players before the match takes place. 

If a team does not verify their players before the game they will not be allowed to play. 

Player registrations are the responsibility of the coach and team manager, any player who has not been registered prior to the match day will not be permitted to play.

Player eligibility
Under 6, Under 8, Under 10, Under 12
All players aged 12 or younger are eligible to be registered for a team and play in Liga Suparimau. This includes players under the AT programmes

Under 14 and Under 16
In the Under 14 and Under 16 age groups, teams are not permitted to register any player who is registered and actively playing with SSM or AMD programmes. Any team found to be fielding an ineligible player will be punished and the players will be removed from Liga Suparimau. Players registered in PLD programmes are permitted to play in Liga Suparimau.

Girls Age Groups 
All girls are permitted to be registered and join Liga Suparimau’s girls age categories.

Player rules

Players may not transfer to another club during the season. Once they are registered and have played for that club they may not play for another club in the same season. 

Male players are not permitted to play for 2 different clubs in the same age group or for 2 different clubs in 2 different age groups. If a team has registered more than 1 team in the same age group they are not permitted to switch the players between the 2 teams.

For example, a Liverpool U10 A player can not play for Liverpool U10 B. If clubs are found breaching these rules, one or both of their teams will be removed from the league.

Female players are not permitted to play for 2 different clubs in the girls age groups. However, they may play for a different club in the boys age group.

Players are permitted to play for 2 different age groups within the same club as long as they meet the age group cut off. For example, a Liverpool U14 player may also play for Liverpool U16. The player must be registered in both team lists. 


All districts
Divisions are set in order to ensure matches remain balanced. We are aiming to create fair competition to aid player development. Teams will be split into 2 divisions based on the following criteria: 

Lions Division
Players from SSN, AT & PLD are allow to compete
Players from SSM & AMD are not allowed to compete

Tigers Division & below
No players from SSM, AMD, SSN, AT & PLD are allowed to compete

The League Committee reserves the right adjust divisions on case by case basis depending on the sign up of teams in each state. 

League fixtures will be posted 1 week before the start of the season. 

Teams will typically play 1 game per day, however there may be situations where a team is required to play 2 games in a day. Matches can take place on Friday (Kedah and Johor), Saturday or Sunday. 

Teams are given 1 blackout weekend where they can request not to have any matches. The form for requesting your blackout weekend can be requested from the league admin team.

Teams must submit this blackout date request before the following dates for each season:

  • Season A: Sunday 14th January
  • Season B: Sunday 28th April

Once the fixtures have been set, teams are required to adhere to the schedule provided by the League Committee. No requests to change fixture dates and times will be entertained during the season.

In the event that a team fails to show up for a match, a walkover result will be granted to the opposing team. If a team forfeits, they will be responsible for paying both their own and the opposing team’s matchday fee (for instance, the U10 Kuala Lumpur team must pay RM150 + 150). Failure to make payment on the same match weekend will result in immediate removal from the league. Any team that forfeits two matches in a season will be banned from joining the subsequent season.

A walkover will be declared if a team arrives with less than the minimum required number of players (see Match Formats). In this case, an attempt to play a friendly match will be made by mixing the 2 teams together. This must be organised between the 2 coaches on the field.

U6–U10 competitions
No results or league tables will be published for the U6, U7, U8, U9 & U10 age groups with the exception of the U10 category where the results will be published for coaching purposes.

This is following the guidelines set out by the Asian Football Confederation and the Football Association of Malaysia for grassroots football.

U11–U18 competitions
Results and league tables will be shown on the website and the Liga Suparimau mobile app. 

Teams will receive 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss. The league champions will be the team with the most points at the end of the season.

Should there be a tie on points at the end of the league, goal difference shall be used to determine the winner. If the teams are still level, the following will used to determine the league champions, in order:

  1. Greatest number of goals scored
  2. Fewest goals conceded
  3. Result between the teams when they played each other
  4. Failing a distinction, the teams will play a match with golden goal rules. The first team to score will be determined the champions

Team withdrawal (results null and void)
In the case that a team withdraws from the league after playing 50% or more of the matches in that season, all existing results involving that will stand and the remainder of the matches will be declared 3–0 walkovers. The withdrawing team will be barred from joining the league for 1 season.

In the case that a team withdraws from the league having played fewer than 50% of their matches in that season, all results against the team (including matches which have already been played) will be considered a 3–0 walkover result.

U6–U10 age groups
All players will receive an e-certificate and participation medal at the end of every season. This will be awarded at the final match of the season. All players will receive a player badge on the Liga Suparimau admin app for every season they complete.

U11–U18 age groups
All players will receive an e-certificate at the end of every season and the certificate can be downloaded in the Liga Suparimau App.

Teams finishing in 1st place in each U11, U12, U13, U14, U16 and U18 league will receive a trophy and medals. Teams finishing in 2nd and 3rd place in each U11, U12, U13, U14, U16 and U18 league will receive medals only. These will be handed to the players at the end of each season by the field after all matches are complete. 

Player Suspensions 

If a player receives a red card they will be suspended for the next match. If this player is caught playing in the next match the team will be given a 3-0 walkover loss.  

Time allowance
Teams must not be more than 10 minutes late to their kick off. If a team is more than 10 minutes late they run the risk of a walkover (3-0) being awarded to their opponent.

Unsuitable playing conditions
In the event that lightning, bad weather or unsafe playing conditions causes a stop in play, a match result will stand if the first half has been completed or more than 50% of the match has been played.

If less than 50% of the match has been played at the time of the stoppage, the remainder of the match will be played once conditions are deemed safe by the organiser.

Playing kit and squad numbers
Each team is required to have their own playing kit. All teams kits must clearly display a number for each player. 

If a team does not have the same kit or a number on the players jersey they may not be allowed to play. 

Team withdrawal 

If a team withdraws from the league once the league has began they will receive a 1 season ban from joining Liga Suparimau. This is because it is unfair to other teams who will lose a playing match. 

General match rules

Playing areas will be natural grass or artificial turf pitches

Players are not allowed to wear metal studded boots. All players from the U8 age group upwards must wear shin guards when playing.

No glasses may be worn during matches. Any players who require glasses must wear sports goggles. This is for player safety.
