Football Association of Malawi CEO Sugzo Nyirenda: Seeking Carslberg support

FAM General Secretary  Suzgho Nyirenda has disclosed that the association would make a proposal to the official to consider a one-off K100 million annual payment for it to enable to play against Guinea in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The association has found itself in financial quagmire after the traditional sponsors government’s K100 million subvention was exhausted.

Nyirenda said they needed K100 million to fulfil the Guinea home and away fixture and Cosafa tournament to be held in Namibia.

“We would like to request Carlsberg Malawi our national team sponsors to offer us K100 million at one go. This is because there’s no money for us to meet the cost of playing the Guinea games in the Africa Cup of Nations,” he said.

“Normally Carlsberg pays us in two instalments but we are caught between a hard and rock place so we don’t have a choice.”

Meanwhile, national team coach Ernest Mtawali has proposed that the team should camp in early February to prepare for the game against Guinea as the off-season break could turn the players rusty.

Malawi’s top league is off-season after the last games being played on 27 December last year.

The move was made to avoid rainy season as most of the pitches could be affected by rains.
