The 2020 edition of the Malaysia Premier Futsal League has been expanded to 12 teams this year following the addition of four more teams from the eight last season.
The four new teams are Sarawak, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan and KPM-PST Mustangs.
This was announced at the official launching of MPFL 2020 this afternoon at Wisma FAM that was officiated by Datuk Hamidin Mohd Amin, the President of the FA of Malaysia (FAM).
“I believe that MPFL 2020 will be more competitive and even more challenging due to the additional number of teams and the number of matches that teams will play. And also the introduction of import players will make it interesting for sure,” said FAM Vice President, Datuk Rosmadi Ismail, who is also the Chairman of the FAM Futsal and Beach Soccer Committee.
MPFL 2020 will kick off on 14 March 2020 and is expected to end on 26 September 2020.
