Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has released a tentative fixture for the whole first round of the TNM sponsored league, spanning from April to August this year.
According to the fixture, which Nyasa Times has sourced, no Super League games will be played when the Malawi national football team, the Flames is engaged in international assignments- a departure from the previous practice, whereby only teams contributing four or more players to the national team were being exempted from games.
This means there will be no Super League games within the first three weeks of July when the Flames will be expected to play an international friendly on Independence Day (July 6), before proceeding to neighboring Zambia for this year’s Cosafa Cup tournament.
Barring the Flames early exit from the regional tournament, the league is expected to resume in the final week of July.
The local league’s governing body has also accommodated the Fifa calendar day, May 25, when the Flames are expected to play a friendly international against Zimbabwe’s Warriors.
Similarly, no Super League games will be played during the K60 million Presidential Cup round-of-32, round-of-16, quarterfinal, semi-final and final games.
KB adopts Dedza Stadium
Amongst other highlights, Sulom has taken recognition of Dedza Stadium as home to Kamuzu Barracks, who will play all their first round home matches in Dedza, starting with this coming Sunday’s crucial fixture against defending league champions Silver Strikers.
In line with the home-match ban imposed on Silver, the bankers are expected to play all their first round home games at Civo Stadium.
Another highlight on the first round fixture is this Saturday’s mouthwatering clash involving high flying Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers.
Both sides boast of maximum points from their respective opening league fixtures but come Saturday, one has to drop maximum points or else they have to share the spoils.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
