The decision was taken by the Executive Committee on Monday in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new season of the Mizoram Premier League will not take place in 2020 as the Mizoram Football Association made the decision to postpone it indefinitely until next year.

The MFA Executive Committee Meeting sat today (6th July) to explore avenues for a successful 2020-2021 football season, as it came to the conclusion of putting its top tier league on hold until next year.

This season’s edition of two prestigious MFA competitions – the MFA Super Cup and Independence Day Football Tournament will also be scrapped due to the COVID 19 pandemic. The MFA Executive Committee will determine whether it will be viable to hold this season’s Mizoram Premier League next year further down the line.

The MFA has also informed its District Football Associations and Zone Football Associations to cease all competitions until further notice. A Special General Body meeting will be held on July 24 to discuss potential propositions regarding the season for District and Zone FAs. Issues regarding player transfers during this season, player registration, competitions within the district as well as Inter-District Football Competitions will also be discussed in the Special General Body meeting.

Five competitions that were already in the MFA Calendar could not take place after the disruption of the 2019-20 season by the Covid 19 pandemic. The MFA Cup, Inter Dist Junior Boys, Inter Dist Women Championship, MFA Women’s League and MFA Futsal League were all effectively cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
