We have the pleasure to welcome in Legea's family the PENANG FA!!!
Unofficially founded in 1920, officially as Football Association of Penang in 21 October 1921, the club represents the state of Penang in football tournaments. The team has traditionally worn a blue home kit.
The 2017 season is Penang's 97th competitive season, 2nd consecutive season in the top flight of Malaysian football. Penang will also participate in the Malaysia FA Cup. The season covers the period from 1 January 2017 to 30 November 2017.
The state football team play their home matches at the 40,000 capacity Penang State Stadium in Batu Kawan.
The team is based in the state of Penang in the north of Malaysia. Penang have consistently been a decent team throughout their history, producing players such as the country's first Olympian. Penang is the fifth most successful team in Malaysian football history with 14 champions.
Penang FA's traditional home colours are sky blue and yellow which are taken from the colours of the Penang state flag which stand for the sea surrounding the island and peace respectively. Navy blue and yellow have also been used severally. Traditional away kit colours have been either yellow or white. However, in recent years several different colours have been used, such as green, pink and orange.
The current home jersey sports a lighter shade of blue while the away jersey is white with blue stripes. The lighter shade of blue is a better representation of the blue colour on the state flag.
To Wish the best!
State of Penang!
Penang is a Malaysian state located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, by the Strait of Malacca. It has two parts: Penang Island, where the capital city, George Town, is located, and Seberang Perai (formerly Province Wellesley), on the Malay Peninsula. Penang is bordered by Kedah to the north and the east and Perak to the south.
Its heterogeneous population is highly diverse in ethnicity, culture, language and religion. A resident of Penang is colloquially known as a Penangite (in English), Penang Lang (in Penang Hokkien) or Penangkaran (in Tamil).
Known as the Silicon Valley of the East for its industries, Penang is also one of the most urbanised and economically important states in the country. George Town, which was founded by the British in 1786, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a thriving tourist destination. Penang has the third-highest Human Development Index in Malaysia, after the state of Selangor and the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur.
The name of "Penang" comes from the modern Malay name Pulau Pinang, which means "island of the areca nut palm" (Areca catechu, family Palmae). The name Penang may refer either to Penang Island (Pulau Pinang) or the state of Penang (Negeri Pulau Pinang). The word is derived from the Chinese name for the areca nut or betel palm.
The common languages of Penang, depending on social classes, social circles, and ethnic backgrounds are Malay, Mandarin, English, Penang Hokkien and Tamil. Standard Mandarin, which is taught in Chinese-medium schools in the state, is increasingly spoken.
The Penang Museum and Art Gallery, in George Town, houses relics, photographs, maps, and other artefacts that document the history and culture of Penang and its people.
The Penang Government organises the annual George Town Festival which celebrates the city's World Heritage Site status with arts and live cultural performances throughout the month of July. The famous ''Pesta Pulau Pinang'' (Penang Fest) is a combination of trade expo, family-oriented carnival and cultural events held throughout the month of December since the 1960s primarily at the Pesta site in Sungai Nibong and other locations in the state.
Penang was recognised as having the Best Street Food in Asia by Time magazine in 2004, citing that "nowhere else can such great tasting food be so cheap.
Wish you enjoy the city of Penan with their beauties!!!
