The 1991 season is the 5th season of the league that began on December 29, 1990, and concluded with the championship game on April 6, 1991.

Team movement[edit]

No teams were added, removed, or relocated in the 1991 season. However, the MILL did divide the six teams into two divisions: Detroit, Pittsburgh, and New England comprised the National Division, and the American Division was Baltimore, New York, and Philadelphia.
