Newly elected Beach Soccer Association (BSA) executive committee is planning to introduce structures to attract massive investment into the sport.
The committee’s vice chairperson Panganeni Ndovi said having teams with sound sponsorship and introducing the sport in districts is their core mission.
“We have outlined some plans that we want to implement. We want to have the game in all the districts and at the same time we want our clubs to be financially stable. By doing this we will develop beach soccer,” he said.
Ndovi said establishing a strong beach soccer national team to compete for honours at Cosafa and other tournaments is also key.
“We have good players and with the right structures we should be able to have a team gunning for the Cosafa championship and others,” said the former Nyasa Big Bullets player while promising to fulfill their four year term.
The future of BSA new committee hangs in limbo as the court is expected to make a ruling on its legality. This follows the controversy that surrounded the elections on Saturday.
Earlier on the deposed committee obtained an injunction restraining Football Association of Malawi (Fam) from administering the election but Fam went ahead with the polls claiming that the association was not served with an injunction.
During the meeting on Saturday, Gift Chimbalanga was elected chairperson with Ndovi as the vice. Wakisa Mwambetania was voted general secretary with Jayne Jella deputising.
The post of the treasurer went to Force Ngwira while Fred Banda was elected deputy.
Organising secretary is Willy Kumilambe while Andy Khunga, Edwin Mtachi and Samson Malipa were elected as members.
