The Malaysian FA (FAM) has announced the granting of club licensing to three more teams for the 2018 season.
The three clubs have had their license applications denied earlier, but have successfully appealed to the FAM Club Licencing Board Appeal Board last Friday.
But the association clarified that the licences granted to them are only the FAM licence and not one granted by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), which permits participation in the 2018 AFC Champions League or AFC Cup.
And out of the seven, four have received the AFC licence; JDT, Pahang, PKNS, and Selangor.
The statement added that Felda United and Sarawak have not been granted a licence, for failure to fulfill one of the requirements of the application; finances.
Apart from finances; Malaysian clubs need to fulfill five other requirements; infrastructure, personnel administration, business, legal and sporting.
