3.MFL North, East, South & Southwest ready to kick-off

The new season in the third leagues is ready to begin this weekend except for the group West. The East will start a week later.

FFM approved a new rule for the third leagues. Remains the rule for a minimum of 6 teams that must participate, but in order a group to be able to have its champion enter the promotion play-offs must be played at least 18 round for the champion to qualify in the promotion play-offs.

The four group will start the new season with matches this Saturday and Sunday. Only the group West still hasn’t announced a starting date, not teams that will participate. As MacedonianFootball finds out, not many West teams are interested in playing and the league has problems finding 12 participants.

North

After last season never started and the 2020/21 was interrupted, the North is eventually back on the fields. 16 teams will participate with only two changes from the teams that signed up last season.

South

Due to financial issues the South this season will be without some regular teams. Dinamo and Novo Crnilishte declined playing, but the biggest surprise is the decline of Bratstvo 07 who last season debuted in the second division.

Southwest

The Southwest had cancellations as well. Second league relegated Veleshta announced to be idle this this season, while Crno Buki ZL, who was one of the better teams the past few seasons, did not sign up. Despite the firth leagues of Bitola, Ohrid and Struga were active last season, only the Struga champions got promoted as Lisolaj (Bitola) and Sveti Troica Crnogorci (Ohrid) declined the possibility of promotion. In order to fill the two missing spots (so there could be 12 teams), the South sent invitations to all other fourth divisional teams. The invitation was accepted by Idnina from Boroec, runners-up in the Struga league, as well as from Velmej, which was a surprise since they ended bottom-placed in the Debrca group in the Ohrid league.

2.MFL relegated: Korabi, Veleshta
Did not sign up: Crno Buki ZL, Pobeda (I), Veleshta
Relegated: Oktisi, Strela
