Puchong Rangers has opted to play in the Premier Division of the Football Association of Selangor (FAS) league expected to kick off in mid-May.
Until last season, Puchong Rangers saw action in the Super Division. However, for the new season, Puchong Rangers, going through a team-building process, has chosen to play in the four-group Premier Division.
A total of 40 teams, divided into four groups, will be involved in the Premier Division. After the preliminary rounds, the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout quarter-finals.
Last season's Premier Division champions Port Rangers and runners-up New Rangers have gained promotion to the Super Division. In last year's final, Port Rangers scored a 1-0 win over New Rangers. It will be interesting as both Port Rangers and New Rangers are in Group B of the Super Division.
The Super Division has two groups of eight teams each. The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semi-finals.
Juara-BHL, the Super Division champions, has earned the privilege to play in the competitive national FAM Cup competition.
The Division One has 50 teams. Group A and Group D will have 13 teams each while Group B and Group C has 12 each. Just like the Premier Division, the top two teams from each group in Division One will advance to the quarterfinals.
The FAS are expecting to complete the season before the fasting month in September.
