Super League of Malawi (Sulom) President, Innocent Bottomani, has asked teams to swiftly meet Club Licensing System requirements to avoid disrupting the TNM Super League season.
“It’s not that they are not conversant, but maybe, they missed some crucial steps. We urge them to act quickly to avoid disturbing the league, otherwise, we are pleased with the steps being undertaken to ensure that teams meet the requirements,” he said.
Only Be Forward Wanderers and Mzuni FC received full licences whereas Blue Eagles, Nyasa Big Bullets, Silver Strikers and promoted Dwangwa United got provisional licences.
Moyale Barracks, Civo United, Epac FC, Kamuzu Barracks, Red Lions, Mafco, Max Bullets and Azam Tigers fall within the red range, and were asked to submit the relevant documents by Friday.
Apparently, Sulom has released the kick-off fixture this weekend involving teams with and without licences as well as those with provisional licences.
Fam has since through, Executive Committee Member, Daud Mtanthiko, vowed to set up a monitoring team to ensure that clubs are abiding by the licensing requirements.
“We would be looking at each club’s documents and check the reality on the ground. For instance, if a club closes its office, stops producing audited accounts, is not active in youth football development or relaxes in any other way, Fam will revoke its licence,” he said on Monday in Blantyre.
