Fam on Silver Strikers neck


Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has charged Silver Strikers with six counts following acts of violence that marred their Fisd Challenge Cup semifinal match against Blue Eagles at Civo Stadium last week Saturday.

The match was abandoned in the 83rd minute following continued missiles on the pitch and running battles in the terraces.

Alleged Silver supporters started the attacks after referee Mayamiko Kanjere flashed a straight red card to Silver forward Khuda Muyaba.


According to a statement dated 26th November, 2019, Fam, through its Competitions Committee, Silver have six counts to answer.

The bankers are answering charges such as causing match abandonment, beating or bullying of opponents, inciting hatred and violence, brawl, use of undesignated entry and bringing the game into disrepute which contravenes rules and regulations of the competition.

“The reports have singled out your club as the party responsible for the abandonment of the said match and the violence that occurred at the stadium through the conduct of your players and supporters.


“As outlined in Article 22.1 of the 2019 Fisd Challenge Rules and Regulations, clubs are responsible for the actions of their supporters, officials and players, and as such they are required to take all necessary measures to prevent display of unsporting behavior.

“We would like to note that after reviewing of the reports, we have established that your club failed to discharge its responsibilities in line with Article 22.1,” reads the statement in part which Fam General Secretary, Alfred Gunda has signed.

Meanwhile, Silver General Secretary, Innocent Kadam’manja, said they would formally respond to the charges.

“We will make our stand known formally to Fam,” he said.

Silver have 48 hours to respond to the charges upon receipt of the letter.
