The MESA football leagues for season 2015-2016 resume this week after the Christmas break as the number of participants increases to 34 teams, undoubtedly a record number, which makes MESA the largest affiliated member within the MFA. Before the Christmas break, only games from the third division were played at the Gharghur Football Ground, but as from this week games from all three divisions will be played both at the Gharghur Football Ground as well as the Mqabba Football Ground. MESA league games are normally played on weekdays in the afternoon, between 2 and 5 pm.

This season MESA is introducing a new competition, which will be played on a 5-a-side basis, aimed mainly for those affiliated teams who are unable to play in the main league. This will also be starting this month, and will also be played at the Gharghur Football Ground.

The 34 teams taking part in the MESA leagues this season are:
