This follows some unsporting behaviour that happened during a decisive do or die encounter between the two sides on 19th December, 2015 at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

Epac FC supporters blocked Dedza Young Soccer players and officials from using the dressing room.

Sulom Disciplinary Commitee at a meeting convened on 31st December, 2015 at the Lilongwe Hotel found Epac guilty of two charges.

The first charge was failing to control the actions of its supporters who blocked the entrance in the dressing room therefore preventing players and officials from entering the dressing.

This attracted a fine of K450,000.00.

The other charge was bringing the game of football into disrepute contrary to article 14 of the Sulom Constitution with article 21 (16) of Sulom Rules and Regulations which attracted a fine of K350,000.00.

Thus means that Epac need to pay a total of K800,000.00 before its next league or cup game.

Thorough investigations by Sulom disciplinary committee and police report, Dedza Young Soccer were not involved in blocking the entrance of the dressing room but they have been fined K500,000.00 for bringing the game of football into disrepute.

Sulom observed that there was security lapse in dressing room corridor despite hiring 50 Police Officers hence a need to organize a security sensitization workshop before the start of next season.

Ku Bwengu Nkotalika

Explain why Dedza Young Soccer has to a fine of 500,000MK while EPAC has to pay 350,000MK. Sulom is killing the already poor food ball development in Malawi.


Thats nosense who is supposed to be fined between sulom and dedza?just because sulom has mandate to run superlegue then we should be fooled it has clean hands,was the fair play applied during that game?what about that teargas?it was dedza players who were the victims of teargas not epac.Where on earth can a player showcased his talent and skills in such bad situations.In my view dedza must not pay that fine infact sulom and epac must find ways how to compasate dedza including replay of that game to neutral ground.
