Fam welcomes Fifa’s digitalised platform


Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Club Licencing and Compliance Manager Casper Jangale has said the association will benefit from the first ever digital platform for Professional Football landscape, which Fifa launched on Monday.

Jangale said the initiative would help Fam achieve full professionalisation in running the sport.

“We are in a digital world. Gone are the days when one would have to dig deeper to look for information or travel a long distance to keep track of how football is being run in other parts of the country,” he said.


Jangale said the digital platform dedicated to professional football would go a long way in easing operations and accessibility.

“The train has left the station and the onus is on us to move with the times. Already transfer of players and registration of players have been digitalised through DTMS and Mpira Connect respectively,” he said.

Jangale said Fam already embraced Club Licencing as one of the tools for further developing the game by helping local clubs to move from amateur to professional.


Following the development, Jangale said, soon, Fam would embark on licencing all coaches as well as introducing club licencing to regional associations

“We are part of this global digital village. We have embraced it. Through Club Licencing, Transfer Matching System and Mpira Connect (a stakeholder registration system), we are part of this.

“The onus is now on us to follow and abide by the systems set. We have done well over the years though the challenges are still there for those under us to fully appreciate this,” he said.

On Monday, the world football governing body, launched the Fifa Professional Football Landscape, the first-ever digital database comprising key facts and figures on players, clubs, transfers and top-tier competitions across all 211 member associations.
