Apart from Red Lions, Silver Strikers, Dwangwa United and Be Forward Wanderers, the rest of the Super League clubs are behind schedule in phase two of the licensing system which fell between October 1 and January 31 timeline and involved submitting clubs’ youth development programme, financial statements, constitutions, players contracts and setting up permanent secretariat.

Club licensing manager Casper Jangale said aid the suspended teams have up to 14th February to submit their documents as failing which the documents shall not be received beyond that and it shall  lead to sanctions and most severe one will be no participation in 2016 football season

He said FAM had twice warned the clubs on the consequences of their failure to follow the road map.

“If a newly promoted club like Dwangwa United can manage to fulfil some of the requirements, what more with an established club like Nyasa Big Bullets? It just shows that some of these clubs are not serious. Imagine, a club failing to even produce their bank account number?” said Jangale.

Jangale said now the association will be visiting the teams to inspect if indeed what has been written in their documents submitted to FAM are true before they enter into next phase of Coaching qualifications, Players contracts and Financial statements

Meanwhile,  Nyasa Bullets said they would utilise the 14-day window to submit the relevant documents.

“We  had to finalise the  sponsorship deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company before turning to the club licensing issue,” Bullets chairperson Sam Chilunga said.

And Azam Tigers chairperson Sydney Chikoti  also said the club will “ fulfil it within the stipulated time.”

    Malawi this the one way recommended by world football body FIFA, for Malawi football to forge a step in the right direction. It is not a one man show Malawi premier League teams please adhere to the set standard and Manyasa you are to lead by example. Have your own stadiums, independent football secretariats, contracts for coaches and players, be accountable by having your own bank accounts and must be audited and ofcourse have the youth football academics. No club supporters to man the gates during game time.

    There are some people who are castigating Nyamilandu on this issue, but I say “thumbs up” to Walter and his FAM.

    People need to understand that the only way football is going to improve in Malawi is through club licensing, clubs owning stadiums and club houses, clubs having youth academies and reserve teams, and clubs giving professional contracts to players. Most people who are carrying out technical and administrative duties at clubs in Malawi, are not serious and are not qualified.This is the reason Malawian football has been in mediocrity for a long time.

    There is need to change the way clubs are run and the league has to be fully professional.Malawian clubs also need to forge links with overseas clubs in order to benefit from the technical aspect of the game.This will sharpen up players to a new level comparable to countries like DRC, Ghana, Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon ,Ivory Coast, etc. etc.

    what a stupit fam when have you realized about licensing, walter nyamilandu is concentrating on making money from clubs rather than coming up with practical football development,as far as am concerned this will just kill the football system in the country what about Kaunda coach for CIVO he took to glory the club today he is nowhere coz of the same, when fam is introducing something please conduct feasibility study through acomplete phase stakeholders meeting..
