2022, NOVEMBER 27 – Sabah FC will join Malaysia Super League runners-up Terengganu FC in the Asian Football Confederation Cup (AFC) competition next season following Selangor FC’s defeat in the 2022 Malaysia Cup final yesterday.

Based on the revised Malaysian Football League (MFL) rules, if the Super League, FA Cup, and Malaysia Cup are won by the same club, or the Super League runners-up win the Malaysia Cup, then the second slot for the AFC Cup would be given to the third-placed team in the Super League.

The Rhinos benefitted from the Red Giants’ loss and will make their debut in the regional tournament. However, this is not the club’s first outing on Asian stage, Sabah FA participated in the Asian Cup Winners’ Cup in 1995 before the competition was abolished in 2002 – which coincidently current head coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee was a player.
