Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has started revising TNM Super League fixtures before it kicks-off on November 21.
Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda said the fixture would be ready after Football Association of Malawi (Fam) officials complete inspecting stadiums across the nation.
“Currently Fam is inspecting all the stadiums to certify them fit to host Super League games as such we will not hurry releasing the fixtures. There are a lot of things that are needed to be taken into consideration. The fixtures will be released once we are served with the certified grounds,” Banda said.
Meanwhile, officials from Fam have started inspecting 13 stadiums in the country in preparation for the return of football amid Covid-19 pandemic.
Fam Licensing and Compliance Manager Casper Jangale said the visits will give the association an opportunity to engage stadia owners on how best they can prepare and take care of their facilities ahead of the new season.
According to a statement released Tuesday, the visits are also aimed at assessing how the facilities will comply with Covid-19 measures when football returns.
“A playing venue is importance because this is where the players showcase their skills and spectators also gather there to watch their teams play so a venue has to of high standards and in conformity to the Licensing standards.
“As a football governing body, we depend on these facilities for our matches but we know that they are not solely meant for football so we would like to assist them to make sure that the venues are productive generating. At the end of exercise we will be able to identity which venues are fit for our matches,” Jangale said.
The inspection team was at Mpira Village in Blantyre Tuesday and today they will be at Mulanje Stadium in Mulanje.— Additional reporting Fam Media
