U-15 league resumes
Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has announced the resumption of Fifa-funded Under-15 regional league this weekend.
The league, which is on a pilot phase, was on a recess to allow students to sit for examinations.
Fam technical director, John Kaputa, said eight matches have been lined up in Central and South-Eastern regions in week eight of the league.
“We always emphasise on the importance of education to our players. We encourage them to work hard in class if they are to become great players. Now they are done with their examinations,” Kaputa said.
He added that the league would extend to all of the country’s districts by September.
“This was just a pilot phase. We now know from what has happened in the other districts, that the project is viable. So, we are going to cover all the districts, including Likoma,” Kaputa explained.
The technical director then disclosed that a national Under-15 team would be formed from the best players identified in the districts.
He said an exhibition match would be organised either in Blantyre or Lilongwe for the general public to taste the fruits of the Fifa-funded program.
Malawi was chosen by Fifa the whole of Africa for the pilot league project.
