Fisd Challenge Cup’s national draw will take place in Lilongwe this afternoon with eight TNM Super League teams set to know the identity of their opponents.
Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Competitions’ Manager, Gomezgani Zakazaka, said there will be no seeding during the draw, which will also involve regional teams.
“All the 16 teams will be put in one pot in the draw, which will start with round of-16, quarterfinals, semifinals and the final itself. So, there are chances of regional teams playing against each other and Super League giants playing against each other,” Zakazaka said.
The preliminary phase for the Super League teams was concluded last Sunday when eight teams made it into the last-16 phase.
The qualified Super League teams are Nyasa Big Bullets, Blue Eagles, Silver Strikers, Civo United, Epac, Dwangwa United, Kamuzu Barracks and Be Forward Wanderers.
From the regional play-offs, six teams have qualified while two others will emerge this weekend.
Dululu FC and Sayama FC have qualified from the Southern Region with Nsanama and Migowi battling it out for the third slot this weekend.
In the Central Region, Dwangwa Town Hammers and Lake Valley FC have qualified while the identity of the other team will be known when Tiakalulu and Dedza Young Soccer Stars meet.
Zolozolo and Rumphi Pirates have made it from the Northern Region.
