Hands off our stars—Civil Sporting Club


Civil Sporting Club have warned fellow TNM Super League teams against enticing the civil servants’ players without permission.

This comes after the club noted that some clubs have been approaching their players in the ongoing transfer window.

Civil Team Manager, Gabriel Chirwa, issued a stern warning that they would report such clubs to Super League of Malawi (Sulom) and Football Association of Malawi (Fam) on player-tapping allegations.


“We have the evidence that some officials are busy trying to entice some of our players [to join them]. They are doing that without the consent of the club and players are reporting [this] to us. If they continue, we will expose them and complain to relevant authorities,” Chirwa said in a written response.

Reports indicate that giants Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers are interested in signing Civil striker Raphael Phiri.

Civil General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, echoed Chirwa’s remarks, saying: “In modern football, transfer rules and regulations are supposed to be followed.”


Player-tapping is a serious offence in football but, in Malawi, it is treated with kid’s gloves.

Civil, who recently sold Righteous Banda to Bullets, have since signed midfielder Jiddy Mbandambanda from relegated Blantyre United as a replacement.

Last season, Civil finished on position four in the Super League with 48 points, 21 points behind champions Wanderers.

Civil last won silverware in 2015 when they clinched Standard Bank Cup (now defunct) after beating Wanderers 1-0 at Civo Stadium.
