There is immense excitement in the women’s football fraternity ahead of the Football Association of Malawi women’s league kickoff Saturday.

Teams in the league had missed out on action after a year-long absence due to the Covid pandemic.

Some 24 teams have confirmed their participation in the league, which will be divided into two phases.

The league will start with a regional championship contest involving eight teams in each of the country’s three regions on a round robin format.

The top three teams from each region will then meet at national level.

National Women’s Football Association General Secretary Linah Mtegha said she anticipated a tough season.

The second match in the region is between Chisomo Academy and Ascent Academy.

In the South, last year’s runners-up BT Zero will face Envirom whereas Ntopwa will be in action against Sitimia Yoce.
