MSL Season 2 will feature 20 clubs (final number to be confirmed) from the associations affiliated with the MFA. Mawkyrwat will be the venue for the season-opening fixture, while the final, which will be held towards the end of December, will be held in Khliehriat. Resubelpara and Jowai are the other venues.
Niaw Wasa were the champions of the first season of the MSL in 2017-18 and Tynrongmawsaw the runners-up.
Clubs qualify for the MSL by winning the various local leagues organized by the affiliated associations. The teams will be divided into four groups and play each other once, with the top club from each group progressing to the two-leg semifinal stage. Speaking at a press conference here today, MFA treasurer and MSL Tournament Director Wanshan Kharkrang said that the majority of local leagues are almost complete.
