Fixture stand-off continues



Football Association of Malawi (Fam) hopes to convince its affiliate, Super League of Malawi (Sulom), to reschedule Saturday’s TNM Super League game involving giants Silver Strikers and Nyasa Big Bullets.

The crowd pullers meet at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday in a first-round match while, Malawi under-20 national football team host South Africa’s Amajita in the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier at Bingu National Stadium on the same day.


Fam General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, wondered why it was difficult for Sulom to shift the game, having allegedly agreed in principle to do so.

Gunda said they were waiting for Sulom’s response on the matter.

“It is Sulom that was supposed to tell you why they are failing to reschedule the game. We agreed with them that, when there is such an assignment, they should be able to reschedule their games, bearing in mind that when the junior Flames qualify, it would not be only good for Fam but the whole country,” Gunda said.


Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda, earlier insisted that Bullets and Silver would still play on Saturday as arranged.

Meanwhile, football commentator, Charles Nyirenda, has said the under-20 match will be affected if the game involving the giants goes ahead.

“I am wondering as to how these two bodies work. Believe me, there would be only men in suits at Bingu National Stadium, watching the under-20 team. They should sit down and agree on one thing,” Nyirenda said.

The winner between Malawi and South Africa will qualify for the 2019 Niger Afcon finals, whereas Silver and Bullets are battling for the league’s top spot.
