Carlsberg Malawi has rekindled its relationship with the darts family after launching the Carlsberg Stout National Darts Cup at Blantyre Sports Club on Saturday.
It was a memorable and moving occasion as Carlsberg Malawi and Darts Association of Malawi (Dam) officials renewed partnership vows to mark the start of the K2 million worth competition.
Dam President, Isaac Kaneka, said it was an historical moment as Carlsberg returned to bankroll the sport they stopped supporting in 2008.
Before cutting its support, Carlsberg Malawi had been sponsoring darts for 22 years.
“If you might recall, Carlsberg was forced to withdraw its sponsorship eight years ago due to the companies change in strategic policy. Their withdrawal had nothing to do with our administration. Therefore, we are not surprised that Carlsberg has returned to support us after changing its policy once again,” Kaneka said.
He promised to run the competition professionally to impress all stakeholders.
Kaneka said they had put in place strong rules and regulations to complete the tournament successfully.
“All regions with a maximum number of teams not exceeding eight shall play two rounds on two different dates then regional finals, preferably weekends,” he said.
Kaneka added that all teams should always be dressed in uniforms during games.
The Dam President said officials delegated to manage the high table have the mandate to decide the fate of any wrong behaviour observed to be contravening the smooth running of the games.
