Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has disclosed it will pre-inspect Bingu National Stadium this coming weekend before inviting Caf instructors to examine the facility.
Fam Club Licencing and Compliance Manager Casper Jangale said it was necessary to pre-inspect the venue to be sure if it would meet the required standards.
“It is true that we will inspect Bingu National Stadium this weekend. Basically, there are a lot of critical areas that we need to inspect such as playing ground, technical, players and officials benches and then we will submit a report on Monday evening,” he said.
Other areas that require inspection include dressing rooms and media facilities.
Jangale said, depending on Fam’s submission, Caf would send representatives to inspect the stadium.
Meanwhile, football analyst George Chiusiwa feels BNS will be certified fit to host international matches.
“I am so sure that since last year, when the facility failed the test, Fam and government have been working hand-in-hand to ensure that the stadium is up to the standard to host international matches,” Chiusiwa said.
Last year, The Flames opted to use Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, for their home matches in the World Cup qualifiers.
