Speaking to Nyasa Times after the fourth week results since the league kicked off, the league’s governing body, the Super League Association of Malawi (SULOM) General Secretary Williams Banda said so far so good.
“I can assure you that we no longer have underdogs in the league since the kick off. Just look at the results and log table where you will see unfamiliar teams in the top-half. This is a clear indication that we are improving just by looking at the level of competition.
“ We are happy with the progress so far and are we are hoping for better developments in future,” said Banda.
Commenting on when Malawians should expect the 16th team in action, Banda said Karonga United who replaced Chilumba Barracks as the team promoted from Northern region Football League will be in action during week 5 of the league’s fixtures.
“I can confirm that Karonga United will be in action this coming weekend. Their first assignment is against Silver Strikers at the Mzuzu Stadium.
“We are still assessing their other option of a home ground which is Nthalire stadium. Once we are done with our assessments, we will come back and announce if the venue is indeed suitable and qualified to host a super league match,” Banda said.
After a fourth round of games, Blue Eagles remain top with 15 points from games with Mzuni on second with 9 points from 4 games while Moyale occupy third position with 7 points from 4games. EPAC F.C, Nyasa Big Bullets, Be Forward Wanderers, CIVO Service United, and Silver Strikers are on 6 points each and only separated by goal difference.
