FMB defended their Bankers Association of Malawi (BAM) Sports Day championship at College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre on Saturday.
BAM Executive Director, Lyness Nkungula, described the event as successful.
“This is an annual event and this year, we added golf on the sports menu which has received an overwhelming response from the bankers,” Nkungula said, adding that the event cost K15 million.
“However, we have plans to introduce other activities such as cycling next year. We hope to accommodate non-bankers as we have received many requests. These activities are aimed at bringing together members of the profession to share business ideas and relax after working hard for a year.”
Being overall winners, FMB Head of Marketing and Communication, Slyvia Mataka, said the win complements their contribution to the development of sports in the country.
