As I've already mentioned to Excel, there's no problem doing an upgrade at any time, you won't lose anything, but the main thing to do is make sure you're prepared.

* Put the site in maintenance mode.

* Do a database backup.

* Keep a copy of existing files.

The update should only take seconds, but you need to be sure you can put everything back as it was in case anything goes wrong during the update. I've never actually done a 4.9.3 -> 5.2.2 update directly, and you have a lot of data on CODLeague.

I told Excel I'd be happy to do the update for you, but you'd need to give me FTP access to your server and access to your database via phpMyAdmin (or whatever your site uses).
