Macarthur’s Premier Competition, the M-League, could expand in 2022, after provisional licenses were confirmed to member clubs recently.
Nine clubs have been issued a provisional license for the Men’s First and Reserve Grades, including St Mary’s Eagle Vale. Eight clubs have participated in the League over the past two COVID-interrupted seasons.
Gunners SC and Mt Annan Mustangs could make their way into the Colt’s League, after they were also issued provisional licenses which could see the U21 Competition grow to ten teams in 2022.
The provisional license allows these clubs to run trials throughout November and December to determine whether expansion is in fact viable.
The Women’s First Grade will remain an eight-team League, with the current license holders all accepted into the League for the next two seasons.
All MFA member clubs were invited to express their interest in an M-League License for a two-year period. In order to be considered for an M-League License, clubs must demonstrate capacity to meet various criterion.
The MFA is thrilled with the level of interest in the M-League and hopes to see expansion plans come to fruition.
Players with an interest in trialling should contact licensed clubs or monitor social media pages for announcements.
