Shortly before the 1992 season, the Hamilton Steelers, Nova Scotia Clippers, and Kitchener Kickers folded. The league was not doing well financially either and Montreal Supra owner Frank Aliaga was named the new league president, replacing the interim president Mario DiBartolomeo, who was the owner of the now-folded Hamilton Steelers. Hamilton folded despite offers of cost sharing with the Vancouver and Montreal team owners.
The London Lasers returned from a one-year hiatus, leaving the league with a six-team division. The league had a balanced schedule with each team playing the others a total of four times, twice each home and away. Due to the drop in teams, only four teams qualified for the playoffs. For the first time, the Championship final would not be a one-off match, but instead would be a two-tie fixture as the other rounds.
Vancouver once again won the regular season title and advanced to the MITA Cup finals for the fifth consecutive year, where they met the Winnipeg Fury in the final. Winnipeg won the title becoming only the third club to win the championship, ending Vancouver's four-year winning streak, snapping Vancouver's 15 match playoff winning streak, handing them their first playoff loss since 1987.

The playoffs were conducted with a total points system. Teams earned two points for a win, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss. The team with the most points following the two-game series advanced. If the teams were tied on points, they played a 30-minute mini-game for a bonus point, followed by a penalty shootout if the mini-game remained tied.
