The Red Warriors Kelantan Football Club, also known as TRW Kelantan, is a professional association football club based in Kota Bharu, in the Malaysian state of Kelantan. The football team has played in the second tier of Malaysian football, the Malaysia Premier League since 2019.
Founded in 1946, we have a long-standing rivalry with Terengganu, the two east coast teams involved in what is known as the East Coast Derby. Our home is the 22,000-seat Sultan Muhammad IV Stadium. Kelantan’s regular kit colours are a red shirt and shorts with a white pattern on the side.
On 6 September 2020, Kelantan FA was being purchased by businessman Zamsaham for RM 6.8 million. The reason he purchases the club was to save the club from bankruptcy with former player debts that were too high.
For 2021, as part of the effort to revamp Kelantan FC and also to bring the Club back to its glory days, Norizam Tukiman reshuffle the whole structure of the Club from the coaching staff to the players. Almost 90% of the players for the 2021 season are new players and the native of Kelantan. TRW Kelantan FC also successfully appointed a new lineup of the coaching staff, led by Marco Ragini, to instil Italian DNA in Kelantan FC.
Apart from restructuring the Club’s lineup, the Management also had taken the effort to slowly acquire assets for the Club such as TRW Hotel & a 4 wheel-drive.
