The Football Association of Perak enters a team in Malaysian football competitions to represent the state of Perak. The team currently plays in the Malaysia Super League.

Perak FA was formed on April 18, 1951 to oversee footballing activities throughout the state of Perak. Although a formal association was only formed in 1951, Perak FA has actually had a football team since 1921, which participated in the Malaya Cup (later HMS Malaya Cup, known today as the Malaysia Cup). They were also one of the founding members of the Malayan Football Association (the predecessor of the modern Football Association of Malaysia) which happened in 1926.

They are the third most successful team in the Malaysia Cup competition with 7 wins and 11 second-place finishes. They won the last of their 7 titles in 2000 and were runners-up in the 2007 edition. In 2003, Perak FA became the first team in 13 years to achieve back-to-back league titles in Malaysian Football.

Perak FA has been a consistent team in Malaysian Football, having finished in the top five of the Malaysia Super League every year since its inception. Besides that, Perak FA is the only team in Malaysia that has never been demoted to a lower division since the professional league was introduced in 1989. Perak FA calls the 42,500-seat Stadium Perak as its home ground, although it has played some matches at the 15,000-seat Lumut Stadium (inside the Royal Malaysian Navy (TLDM) base in Lumut, Perak) whenever Stadium Perak has not been not available. The Perak FA's home ground is also sometimes referred to by its nickname, Fair Park as Stadium Perak is located near Fair Park in Ipoh where the team's office is situated.

Perak FA's nickname is Seladang which is the Malay name for Gaur. A favourite tagline of its supporters is Kejor Yeop Kejor, which roughly translates to "Chase It, Brother, Chase". The tagline was adopted by the team after the state government used it as their tagline for the 1996 Sukma Games. In 2007, Perak FA introduced a team song entitled, 'Skor Yeop Skor'.
