He said the league was historical having played critical role in the development of great football teams and stars.

“The oldest league in the country needs to be supported as it has a special place in the history of Malawi football,” Nyamilandu said.

“It was produced great players such as Kinnah Phiri, Jack Chamangwana, Lawrence Waya just to mention but a few.”

Football Association of Malawi bailed out the league after providing a K4.1 million rescue package towards prizes for teams and individual awards.

Max Bullets who were promoted from Malawi’s second tier league after emerging champions received K1.5 million, Cobbe Barracks got K750,000 on second position while Mangochi Medicals pocketed K500,000 on third position.

MacPeter Makwale who was top goal scorer in the Premier Division was awarded with K40,000.

  2. International Observer says:

    You don’t expect a regional league to finance itself when it doesn’t have an all out support from the main football administrator in the country (FAM). In his acceptance speech the new FIFA President did mention that his office is going to support National Football Associations with funds in the ranges $3.8 million or thereabouts. We expect the money to trickle down to regional bodies in order for them to run their associations at that level other than confiscating the money within FAM offices whose accounting books goes unaudited. FIFA president knows football associations need a push financially and in turn the associations must support their mother body. FAM president cannot expect good upcoming players to beef up the current players without any support from his office. The prize money he is citing is peanuts when you compare it with the expenditure the clubs incur at the end of the season. Try to be realistic when it comes to things like finances, please.
