MDF Marine lead with 32 points from 15 matches while at second place, Mitra Icons, have 30 from 14 matches.

Former TNM Super League participants Nchalo United are third with 29 points from 17 games with another former side in the top flight league Blantyre United are 4th at 28 points from 15 games.

On 5th position are BNC Produsak with 27 points from 17 games with Cobbe Barracks and Chikwawa United tying on 26 points. However, Cobbe are 6th while Chikwawa are 7th because of goal difference.
