Play Football Malawi unveils plans


One of the country’s academies, Play Football Malawi, has unveiled an ambitious five-year plan.

The Lilongwe academy’s technical director, Davie Mpima, disclosed recently that they had secured land for the construction of top-class football pitches, offices and hostels in Likuni.

“We are moving in the right direction. We want to develop talented young footballers and we are happy because some of the players from the academy are attracting interest from Super League teams,” Mpima said during a launch of the academy’s activities in Lilongwe.


He, however, could not disclose the cost of the project, which is expected to run for three years.

The launch was spiced up by football matches involving junior teams in Lilongwe.

Players from the academy also took part in the Under-14, 15, 17 and 20 games.


Mpima further said the games were also organised to identify talented players for the academy.

“Our main is to nurture young talent. The games also offered our players an opportunity to showcase their talent,” Mpima said.

Simon Holdener established the academy in 2012. The academy provides sports and educational facilities for the children in Lilongwe.

The academy has already constructed hostels, pitches and offices in Mtandire Township in Lilongwe, where it is implementing several projects such as One Love.

The One Love project aims at supporting orphans, juveniles, children i n hospital and Early Childhood Development.
