The 2020 Malaysia Super League (Malay: Liga Super Malaysia 2020), known as the CIMB Bank Liga Super Malaysia 2020 for sponsorship reasons, was the 17th season of the Malaysia Super League, the top-tier professional football league in Malaysia.
The first transfer window was from 16 January to 15 March 2020.
On 13 March 2020, it was announced that the league would be suspended indefinitely, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On 1 May, it was announced that the league would resume in September dependent on the situation at the time. Due to time constraints, the home-and-away format has been scrapped. Teams played each other only once, meaning that the champion of the Super League was decided after eleven rounds of matches.
Changes from last season
Sabah and PDRM are promoted after securing their place as champions and 3rd-placed finishers in last season's Malaysia Premier League (runners-up Johor Darul Ta'zim II is ineligible for the Super League due to being the reserve team to Johor Darul Ta'zim).
As PKNS has changed their status as the reserve team to Selangor, they are therefore replaced by the 5th-placed finishers of last season's Malaysia Premier League UiTM (4th-placed finishers Terengganu II is ineligible for the Super League due to being the reserve team to Terengganu FC).
