So far eight colleges have been earmarked to take part in the first championship.

Chancellor College, Polytechnic, College of Medicine, Malawi University of Science and Technology (Must), Catholic University and One College from Mangochi are expected to represent the Southern Zone Basketball League (Sozobal).

African Bible College and Luanar will represent the Central Zone Basketball League (Cezobal) while Mzuzu University will carry Northern Zone Basketball League (Nozobal) flag.

Recently, Mlasaanthu said they decided to revive college basketball because the institutions play an integral part in the development of the sport.

“Players usually graduate from high/secondary schools to the college. This is where they learn the advanced part of the game,” he said.
