Ntopwa FC seek solace in FDH Bank Cup


Struggling TNM Super League side Ntopwa FC have intensified their preparations for the FDH Bank quarterfinaltie against Ekwendeni Hammers on Saturday to salvage their season.

Ntopwa owner Isaac ‘Jomo’ Osman believe doing well in the K90 million worth cup would inspire them to finish strongly in the league.

“We are struggling in the league and FDH is our hope. We feel we can turn our season if we do well in the cup. We know the game will be tough because it is a cup tie but we will fight hard to the end,” said the Ntopwa Technical Director.


Quarterfinalists will get K1 million each whereas semifinalists will pocket K2 million each. Champions will receive K25 million, with runners-up pocketing K8 million.

Ntopwa are on position 15 in the league with 20 points from 26 games whereas league debutants Ekwendeni Hammers are sixth on the table with 34 points from 23 games.

The Amaghetto Boys drew one-all with Mzuzu Warriors on Sunday.


In other quarterfinals ties, Dedza Young Soccer will date Rumphi United at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday whereas Mighty Wanderers will entertain Mafco at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.

The tie involving Silver Strikers and Nyasa Big Bullets completes the quarterfinals line-up but the game will be played when the People’s Team return from Cecafa.

The development comes after FDH Bank Cup has been tagged Watsala Watsala following a promotion which the bank ran in relation to the K90 million-worth cup.
