“Today I will do what others don’t want to do and tomorrow I will achieve what others can’t attain” – 16 December 2013, HRH Major General Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Crown Prince of Johor
The decree was made by HRH Crown Prince of Johor after the 2013 season ended. During that season, JDT were third in the Malaysia Super League, finished FA Cup runners-up and crashed out in the Malaysia Cup quarter-finals. A 6-1 loss to Kelantan FA in the second leg of the Malaysia Cup 2013 quarter-finals was one of the moments that are still remembered to this day.
A decade later, we have now won 26 trophies since 2014 including 10 consecutive Malaysia Super League titles.
