Copa Coke talent flows to district finals


The race for this year’s Copa Coca-Cola Malawi Schools Sports Association (Massa) Under-15 championship takes a decisive turn this weekend during district finals to involve 144 schools Saturday and Sunday.

Copa Coca-Cola senior brands manager, Titha Mbilizi, said they were excited to reach this stage having been supporting the grassroots competition since 1968.

“This is the longest running sponsorship targeting Under-15 football talent in the country. Our registration this year reached 1,550 teams (that’ 27,900 young football players) taking part,” she said, adding that they have put measures to curb age-cheating.


“We have different strategies to curb age-cheating, including continuous screening of the students during games. We are also working with the teachers of the participating schools to continue assisting Massa with adherence to age.”

Mbilizi said in 2015 Copa products from Malawi, Allan Mkochi and Collins Msuku, travelled to Germany for an international camp.

“In the same year, a Malawi select team travelled to South Africa for a five-day International Africa Camp to forge friendships and gain valuable skills both on and off the pitch,” she added.
