The Myanmar National League will only be able to confirm the participant teams after releasing the Myanmar National League II fixtures next year.
After the 2020 season, three teams playing in MNL were disbanded, and the Myanmar National League allowed some teams from MNL-2 to qualify for the Myanmar National League I.
As a result, the number of teams in the MNL II competition has decreased and new teams will be added, but the number of teams has not been confirmed yet.
The first round of the tourney was cancelled after the 2020 Myanmar National League season due to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and was cancelled again this year.
Eight teams competed in the MNL II in 2020, and the Myanmar U-19 youth team, which is formed for international competitions, is competing in the league under the name of Junior Lions.
Of the teams competing in the tournament, Chinland FC and Myawady FC will be relegated to the MNL next season, following a decision by a league committee meeting earlier this year.
Two new teams, including Dagon, are likely to be added, but the number of teams is likely to change as the tournament fails to take place this year.
The Myanmar National League II started in 2013 and has been held nine times.
Chin United won the 2013 version of the tourney, while Hanthawady United won in 2014, Southern Myanmar in 2015, Manaw Myay FC in 2016, City Yangon United in 2017, Royal Thanlyin FC in 2018, and Chin United in 2019 respectively. — Ko Nyi Lay/ GNLM
