M-League organiser Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) has announced fixture changes to the Super League and Premier League, involving two matchdays.

According to FMLLP, the changes were made as the Malaysia national team will be playing two international matches, which required preparation time.

Malaysia will open their third round Asian Cup qualification campaign away to North Korea on March 28, but they will first play a friendly against the Philippines in Manila on March 22, with the training camp beginning on March 13.

The matchdays involved are Super League round nine that had initially been scheduled for March 18, and Super League round 12 on April 26. The round nine matches have been moved to April 26, with matchday 12 that had originally been scheduled on that day moved to May 24 and redesignated as matchday 13 instead.

The changes also involved the second tier. Premier League matchday nine, originally scheduled for March 17, has been moved to April 25, with Premier League matchday 12, originally scheduled for April 25, moved to May 24 and redesignated as round 13.
