The country’s representatives in Confederation of African Football (Caf) competitions Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers have questioned Super League of Malawi (Sulom)’s unclear stance regarding the support it pledged to teams competing in Caf tournaments.

Sulom pledged financial assistance to teams that would compete in Caf competitions but the body is yet to disclose what support it will render to the two outfits.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga, whose side will compete in Caf Champions League, said they would engage Sulom to clarify issues concerning the pledge it made.

“We will do so at an appropriate time as we are busy with other stuff but we are aware that they made that pledge,” he said.

Silver Chief Executive Officer Thokozani Chimbali, whose team will participate in Caf Confederation Cup, accused Sulom of being mum on the matter.

“We haven’t been told anything on the matter. We are also waiting to hear from them as to what assistance they will provide ahead of the games,” he said.

However, Sulom President Tiya Somba Banda advised the clubs to exercise patience, saying the pledge still stands and clubs will be advised at an appropriate time.

“We haven’t sat down and analysed what kind of support we will give the teams. We will advise them once we finalise the matter,” he said.

Meanwhile, both Bullets and Silver will know their continental rivals on August 15 when the draw will be made.

Currently, Bullets are in Tanzania participating in the Cecafa Kagame Cup.
