Perak Football Club or Perak FC is a professional football club based in Ipoh City that competes in Malaysia Super League. Founded in 1921, the club's home ground since then has been Perak Stadium in Ipoh, Perak. The club represents the state of Perak in Malaysian football competitions. They currently play in the top division in Malaysian football, the Malaysia Super League and has never been relegated since the introduction of football league in Malaysia.
The club was formerly named simply as Perak or fully as Perak Amateur Football Association (PAFA) before being rebranded as Perak FA and again in February 2016 as Perak The Bos Gaurus which will be used for 2016 season onwards. From 2021 onwards, the club will be known as Perak FC as a condition of the privatization of the club.
Perak regular kit colours are yellow and black or white for shirts, shorts and socks. The club's current crest has been used since February 2016 which was introduced to replace the previous season crest. On 2021, Perak club's newest current crest will be used after Perak management was held a competition to create the a brand new Perak FC logo.
Perak has sent a football team to play in Malaya Cup since its inaugural season in 1921. They were also one of the founding members of the Malayan Football Association (the predecessor to the modern Football Association of Malaysia) in 1926. However, the team was not officially registered until 18 April 1951, when the newly formed governing body of Perak football, the Perak Amateur Football Association (PAFA), took over its management.
Perak is the third most successful club in Malaysia Cup history, having won the competition a total of 8 times, with the last of those coming in 2018. It also won the inaugural FA Cup in 1990, a feat it repeated in 2004.
Since Malaysian football league competition was introduced in 1982, the team has emerged league winners twice (in 2002 and 2003) and is the only team to have never been demoted to a lower division. Perak has yet to win the Super League since its foundation in 2004, with its best showing coming in the 06-07 and 2018 seasons where they finished runners-up.
Perak subsequently acquired its club license in 2017, in accordance with FMLLP's (currently known as Malaysia Football League) (MFL) requirement for all M-League clubs to acquire their licenses by the start of the 2018 season.
Perak TBG made its Champions League debut on 12 Feb 2019, by virtue of being runners-up of the 2018 Malaysian Super League. The club made it to the third playoff round where it was defeated 1-5 by Ulsan Hyundai.
In 2020, Perak successfully obtains club licensing or club privatization in 2021 in line with the intention of the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) to require all state association clubs to be privatized clubs & thus separation between clubs and state football associations (FA) which is that means Perak FA will be known as Perak Football Club or Perak FC.

Crest and colours
Crest of Perak FA (1921-2020)
Perak has historically utilised one primary crest. The first, adopted when the club was founded, was the image of a Malayan Tiger, where it is famous in Malaya and remained for more than half-century. In 2015, in effort to modernise the club, a new crest was introduced to replace the old crest as the club main crest. The club replaced the old crest with new logo and adopted the image Seladang which is more synonym with the Perak football team. After being criticized for the lack of quality for the logo, Perak The Bos Gaurus launched a new version of the logo chosen from the logo competition held by the team for 2016 season onwards. Perak reused previous crest for 2019 season for all competitions until 2020 season.

Crest of Perak FC 2021 (Currently)
After we choose a brand new Perak FC which create by one of Perak FC fans name Hafiz Ismail after winning Perak FC logo creation competition, he choose to 'redesign' using a round logo due to several factors such as the round shape looks more stable in small or large size.
Besides that, the visibility rate is high if the logo is small, especially for social media. The details will not be easily lost, especially for prints on jerseys and so on and easy to 'invert' and 'outline'.
As for the concept of monogram of PFC which is represent from Perak Football Club with a design like a Gaur head. No team in the Malaysian League competition using this concept of monogram. Therefore, Perak FC became the first to use such a concept and on average used animal symbols or icons.
