Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) will initiate an international youth competition to provide better competition for JDT Academy trainees.

    The current football structure under the FA of Malaysia and Malaysian Football League currently only provide competitions from under-18 and under-23 to the senior team. There is a great need for a competitive tournament for all our academy teams as we have under-12 to under-18 teams that lack quality matches in the absence of good local competitions.

    The competition will be open to both international and local academies.

    The details of the competition will be announced in due course after sanctions for the competitions are obtained from the relevant governing bodies.

    Alistair Edwards, Johor Darul Ta’zim FC Chief Executive Officer
