12th edition of Manipur State League will resume its operation from October 16th as informed by All Manipur Football Association. 

All the league matches were suspended after Football Referees' Welfare Association refused to conduct any more matches after a Referee was assaulted by supporters and officials of Sagolband United after their match against NEROCA FC on Oct 10 at Mapal Kangjeibung.

2. SU President and Team Manager have also been dissociated with the activities of AMFA and its units for a period of 2 years, and also a fine of Rs. 10,000/- each have been imposed against them.

The League will resume from October 16th with Dimapur Road Athletics taking on Nambul Mapal Athletics and Cultural Organisation in the first fixture of the match, followed by 2015 Champions, Anouba Imagee Mangal facing North Imphal Sporting Association.
