Major Arena Soccer League Commissioner Keith Tozer today announced teams will play a full 24-game schedule which will run from late November through early April of 2022, with playoffs to follow. This follows a season where 7 of 16 teams competed in a shortened regular season due to COVID-19. Fans can look forward to all member clubs participating in the 2021-22 season. Teams will be announcing up to three guaranteed home dates over the next few weeks, subject to approval by the office of the Commissioner.
Commissioner Tozer said, “All of our member clubs across North America including the new league office are working extremely hard in preparation for an exciting ‘21-22 season in front of the great fans of professional indoor soccer.”
Further announcements will come from the league during the off-season regarding the final roster of teams, conference alignment, and 2021-22 playoff format.
