Meghalaya Football League to start from Nov 25

Shillong, Nov 6 (UNI) The second edition of the Meghalaya State League will kick off
on November 25, with four venues around the state hosting the matches between the
top clubs of Meghalaya.
MSL Season 2 will feature up to 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 organised 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.
Meghalaya Football Association Treasurer and MSL Tournament Director Wanshan
Kharkrang told reporters that the majority of local leagues are almost complete.
"Prior to the season beginning we will have another press conference to announce
the teams and the grouping. Clubs that qualify will be provided financial incentives
like the last season and associations with successful leagues will also receive
remuneration," he added.
Meanwhile, MFA CEO Arki Nongrum said after the first edition of the MSL, more
associations have expressed an interest in taking part.
"The financial incentives are to encourage associations to conduct leagues properly,"
Nongrum said.
"Next year we envision streamlining the structure of football leagues conducted by
the local associations. We will provide guidelines from the level of the players to the
association as a whole to streamline the way the sport is conducted in the state."
Meanwhile, the MFA also stated that the planned introduction of an U-15 MSL would
help bridge the gap between the Meghalaya Baby League and senior tournaments.
Nongrum said that associations that are running senior leagues are also interested
in the U-15 MSL.
