September 13


THE Malaysia Premier Futsal League (MPFL) 2021 named CUCKOO has officially been cancelled, according to the statement with the ASEAN Football Federation.


The FA of Malaysia (FAM) made the statement in previous week after taking into consideration the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, said the source with the ASEAN Football Federation.


“The decision was also taken in line with the current status of the competition which has yet to receive official permission from the Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) and the National Security Council (MKN),” said ASEAN football officials.


“This is the best decision to be taken at the moment as this will allow teams to make better plans to compete in the competition next season,” ASEAN football authorities added.


Similarly, all the Myanmar National League football matches have been postponed to next year amidst the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic across Myanmar.


The Myanmar National League Committee has decided to resume all MNL matches next year in consultation with all clubs. All the Myanmar National League football clubs will be notified in advance when the tournament will resume in 2022,” said Myanmar National League officials.—GNLM
