Twenty teams will be in the men’s category where they will begin their MPFL campaign next month, while 12 teams will be in the women’s category and where they will start their competition in August.
“The presence of old and new teams will enhance the MPFL 2021 competition which is expected to be more intense where we have allowed for the registration of a foreign player for both categories,” said FAM Vice President and Chairman of the FAM Futsal & Beach Football Committee, Datuk Seri Rosmadi Ismail.
“Through a screening process, FAM have had the opportunity to introduce the proper structure of Futsal and also educate teams on the management and administration of Futsal teams at the national level.”
