The Central Region Netball League (CRNL) future appears uncertain as the league has been dormant for the past five months.

The league was last played in February this year due to lack of sponsorship. CRNL has been without a sponsor for the past four years and teams are now shunning games.

On Wednesday, CRNL chairperson, Charity Malanga, said the committee was optimistic of securing league sponsorship before the end of the year.

“We have not given up and we are confident that we will find sponsors before the end of this year,” Malanga said.

Malanga admitted that without sponsorship it has not been easy to convince teams to take part in the league. She, however, said the league administrators are discussing with a potential sponsor for a netball bonanza.

In an interview, Eagles Sisters’ assistant coach, Madano Thepeteya, said the lack of sponsorship has taken away the league’s excitement.Bio Clinical were the league’s last sponsors in 2011.

The Eagles, Civonets and Mafco are some of the big teams in the region. In recent years, Eagles have proved to be a good side in netball; finishing second in the Airtel netball championship held in Mzuzu.

The league has also produced good players such as Joyce Mvula,

Takondwa Lwazi and Jane Chimaliro, who are Malawi Queens’s regulars.
