Shire Highlands Education Division (Shed) teams are set to meet at Mulanje Park Stadium, with their South East Education Division counterparts set to converge at Zomba Police College Ground.

Malamula said Copa Coca-cola continues to attract a lot of schools and pointed out that some high schools that made history through the competition in past are also competing.

“This year alone 1,600 schools participated. We have had no cases of violence up to this far. Therefore, we can confidently state that this year has been successful.

“In addition, some schools like St Andrews and Kamuzu Academy have gone all the way up to divisional level. This is an encouragement because in the past we could have seen CDSS’s only,” he said.

Divisional champions will each receive K200,000 with runners-up pocketing K150,000.

Third-placed sides will get K120,000 while teams from positions four to eight will also receive different consolation prizes.

After the national finals, MASSA will also identify Under 15 national schools teams for future competitions.

Meanwhile, in an effort to uplift netball in secondary schools, Massa decided to self-sponsor a netball tournament to the tune of K5 million.

“The money has been sourced from our association’s coffers. For sure, next academic year we will have a good sponsorship for girls,” Malamula concluded.
