“We are very happy that the regional draw has been successful. Our commitment is not only to give K500,000 to each of the 16 teams that will qualify for the national draw, but we will also dress them with branded uniforms. Each team will also get two match balls just to motivate them in the course of the competition,” Chimchere said.

Football Association of Malawi (Fam) General Secretary Alfred Gunda expressed satisfaction with the draw which took place at Mpira Village in Blantyre Wednesday.
