Epac FC and Mzuni football clubs have written to the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) on the teams’ intentions to change their uniform colours.
Epac owner, Dean Josiah Banda, said the change from orange and white was part of rebranding following the club’s struggles during the just-ended season.
Epac needed a 2-1 win over Dedza Young Soccer last week to finish on the 11th position with 30 points and survive relegation by the skin of their teeth.
Josiah insisted that, as the owner, he has the right to change the club’s face.
“I consulted Sulom general secretary [Williams Banda] who gave me a go-a-head to write to them about the changes. I have since agreed with my technical panel to wear blue and yellow in 2016,” he explained.
Sulom’s Williams Banda said there was no harm to change colours as Mzuni FC also want to rebrand.
Banda said the students have not dumped their distinct green and white uniform, but will add yellow to the sleeves.
The next TNM Super League season is expected to kickoff in April.
