Blantyre Zero to send players home

Maggie Chombo-Sadik issuing instructions

Women’s football giants Blantyre Zero have revealed plans to suspend the team’s hostel in Machinjiri Township, Blantyre as it was difficult to maintain it due to the effects of coronavirus.

The club’s founder Maggie Chombo-Sadik said it was hard to sustain the hostel as players have been inactive since last year when sporting activities were suspended to curb the threat of coronavirus then.

“It is really hard to keep the team active when women’s football is suspended. In the meantime at the hostel, we have seven players including two players from Rumphi, one each from Karonga, Ntcheu and Dedza. But there is no point keeping them when we do not know when the season will start,” she said.


Zero have a squad of 34 players whereas the hostel houses about 15 players.

Meanwhile, Chombo- Sadik said the club wanted to challenge for national trophies which eluded them in the 2019 season.

“We now have a good squad and with proper planning we can make it big. The only setback is the idleness as the players risk losing form and fitness,” she said.


Zero and Ntopwa Super Queens are well known Southern Region women’s football teams that qualify for national trophies.
