The government, through Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS), introduced the annual national sports awards, dubbed Malawi Sports Awards, to recognise outstanding athletes, individuals and organisations.

MNCS Administration Manager, Henry Mereka, said the awards would be an annual event.

“Through the awards’ scheme, we will strive to achieve different objectives, including encouraging stakeholders to be part of the sporting community and inspire those who participate in sports to aim higher in their respective disciplines.

“Through this initiative, we hope to promote pride, hard work and sportsmanship among athletes, stakeholders and encourage the corporate world into sports sponsorship and partnerships,” Mereka said.

He added that three final nominees will be selected from each category of the awards.
