Central Health Lilongwe and District Netball League (LDNL) will likely watch an exciting final today as giants, Blue Eagles Sisters and Civonets, lock horns in a decider at Kamuzu Institute for Sports.
The two sides are tied on 42 points after playing 21 games, but Eagles lead on superior goal-difference.
Mafco Soldiers are third with 38 points also from 21 games.
The winner of the final will be declared the inaugural champion.
LDNL Chairperson, Charity Malanga, said the final will start with a trophy parade in the morning from Lilongwe Community Ground to Kawale Township.
“It has been an exciting journey. Through the league, we have seen more talented players from the rural areas. We are grateful to Central Health for sponsoring the league,” Malanga said.
Women’s and Children Clinic, Central Health Medical Director, Victor Madhlopa, said the objective of the league has been achieved.
“We are happy that we have managed to reach out to many girls and women. We are looking at a long-term partnership with the committee to ensure that we reach out to many people in the country,” Madhlopa said.
Central Health sponsors the league to tune of K2.5 million.
The sponsorship aims at developing netball while also promoting awareness about cervical cancer screening and vaccine for girls.
During the games, Central Health disseminates messages of cervical cancer awareness and prevention through the league’s ambassador, Takondwa Lwazi.
Before Central Health came to the rescue, the league was without sponsorship for five years.
