Uncertainty surrounds K15 million National Volleyball League


The future of the K15 million Malawi National Volleyball League hangs in limbo as organisers postponed the event a day prior to the launch of the competition.

Initially, the league was supposed to be launched on Saturday [November 19] in Lilongwe but the launch was postponed.

“As per the subject above, Volleyball Association of Malawi (Vam) would like to advise all stakeholders: teams and officials that the MNVL qualifiers that were scheduled to take place starting tomorrow, 17 November 2022, have been postponed to a later day.


“The decision of postponing the tournament has been arrived at after serious consultations with the sponsor,” reads the letter signed by Volleyball Association of Malawi Vice General Secretary Twambilire Chalemba.

The association’s president James Kaunda said they were yet to meet the sponsors and organisers before issuing a statement on the future of the competition.

“However, we urge all teams and other stakeholders not to panic,” he said.


The organising committee last week announced that the league will have the biggest prizes of any volleyball competition in the history of the game in the country.

The winner will walk away with K3 million while the runners-up are assured of carting home K2 million, with the third-placed team pocketing K700,000.

The rest of the teams will receive consolation prizes of K30,000 each with individual prizes in most valuable player, best attacker, best setter, best receiver, best blocker and best defender categories.
