TNM Super League sides, Azam Tigers and Fisd Wizards, will curtain the Copa Coca-Cola Under-15 national finals set for this weekend.
Malawi Schools Sports Association (Massa) general secretary, Blackson Malamula, said the two top-flight teams were selected because they had a lot of players that had just graduated from Copa Coca- Cola.
“So, we felt involving them would inspire the youngsters and schools to continue working hard at school and on the pitch,” he said.
“The Coca-Cola finals get underway Friday with Education Divisional sides battling for the championship.”
Malamula said they were working jointly with the sponsor to make the finale exciting. The competition was on a three-month break to pave the way for secondary school examinations.
Recently, Coca-Cola senior brands manager, Titha Mbilizi, said the break was necessary.
“Copa Coca-Cola recognises the need for balance between education and a healthy active lifestyle for our people. This is why we ensured the tournament took a break,” she said.
This year’s Copa Coca- Cola has attracted 1450 teams, surpassing last year’s record of 1085 teams.
