Players association budgets K60 million


Football Players Association (FPA) has set a budget of K60 million annually to cater for its activities.

FPA General Secretary, Ernest Mangani, on Thursday said they have put several measures to ensure they raise the money.

“We are working tirelessly to that players register with the association. Meanwhile, we have received good feedback from our stakeholders, including the players.


“The K60 million-budget has been made to assist our day-to-day activities, including medical insurance and funeral covers. We also intend to recruit someone who will be responsible for membership registration and running the office on our behalf,” Mangani said.

Meanwhile, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has stepped in to assist FPA by ordering 13 stadium managers in the country to spare six percent and 10 percent from gross revenue per local and international games respectively.

According to a letter dated April 13 2018, addressed to the managers by Fams General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, the share is effective this season.


“The percentage share for the FPA will go towards the financing of the activities and programmes of the association whose objective is to serve the very assets of football—the players. In light of the same, match proceeds distribution sheets are expected to be revised to include the FPA share,” reads part of the letter.

In reaction, Mangani said Fam’s intervention would help FPA to raise the money faster.

Fam certified six stadiums in the Central Region, four in the Southern Region and two in the Northern Region.
