The 2020/21 TNM Super League season will resume on April 2 after the government gave Super League of Malawi (Sulom) the green light.

After getting the go-ahead, Sulom quickly released fixtures Thursday.

Matches were suspended on January 19 after the government gazetted Covid laws restricting gatherings to 50 people.

“We have been given the green light but we are just waiting for official communication from the government,” Nyirenda said.
