Johor Darul Ta'zim Football Club (Malay: Kelab Bola Sepak Johor Darul Ta'zim), or simply JDT, is a football club based in Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia. The club was founded in 1972 (as PKENJ FC) and currently plays in the top division of Malaysian football, the Malaysian Super League. The club is owned by Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim. In 2014, JDT gained their first major honour by winning the Super League during the first season under Croatian manager named Bojan Hodak. Under current Argentine manager Mario Gómez, they won the AFC Cup as well as the Malaysian Charity Shield and Super League. By winning the 2015 AFC Cup, JDT became the second Malaysian team since 1967 to enter a final of a major continental competition, and the first ever Malaysian club to win a continental title. JDT is the first team ever in the country to win three consecutive league titles (2014, 2015 and 2016) since the inception of Malaysia Super League in 2004. Before this achievement, no team had ever won the league championship in three successive years since a league system was first introduced in Malaysia in 1979.
