The league features eight professional football clubs – Aizawl FC, Chanmari FC, Chawnpui FC, Chhinga Veng FC, Electric Veng FC, FC Venghnuai, Mizoram Police and Ramhlun North FC. The league will kick off with Electric Veng FC taking on FC Venghnuai.

“It’s a big step. A state league getting a promotion like that is quite encouraging for Indian football in my opinion,” News18.com has quoted former Aizawl FC goalkeeper Lalmalsawma as saying.

“It is because of the support of the communities to the clubs (that MPL has grown). Most of the clubs are community-based and are owned by localities. Support of the communities is extremely important and that I feel is the reason for MPL’s success. Financially as well, the communities contributed a lot to their clubs.”

“If our footballers get more exposure through this telecast, it will encourage more youngsters to take up football.”

State level broadcaster Zonet, a partner of the Mizoram Football Association for the League, has been broadcasting the MPL within the State ever since the league’s inception.

The league features some of the leading names from the State like India internationals Lallianzuala Chhangte and Jerry Lalrinzuala.
