Beach Soccer Malawi (BSM), the body governing beach soccer in the country says it is greatly impressed with the strides the spot is making after its inception less 10 years ago.
Summarising the Fam Beach Soccer finals held at Livingstonia Beach in Salima over the weekend, BSM publicity secretary Vincent Chirambo said the body was greatly impressed with the standards displayed by all the eight teams that took part in the national finals.
The finals involved eight teams from the country’s beach soccer zones and leagues, which did well during the recently concluded Presidential Beach Soccer tournament.
“It was a great event. Judging from the standards displayed by the competing teams, Beach Soccer is becoming more competitive. No team has been dominating the sport and we have seen the trophy changing hands in every final,” said Chirambo.
The BSM publicist cited the elimination of last year’s champions Nyerere from Chintheche by Madala FC from Karonga in the early knock out stage of the national finals as testimony that the sport was
making steady strides.
During the grand final, Madala defeated Sunbird Nkopola from Mangochi to win the trophy and the K500,000 top prize. The losing finalists received K250,000.
Fam executive member Rashid Ntelera, who was guest of honour at the finals pledged the association’s total commitment towards the development of Beach Soccer.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
