FAM said it has invested K52 million in the Flames’ tailor-made Umbro kit and the replica jerseys that will be sold out to Malawians who love the football national team.

, Walter Nyamilandu Manda, president of FAM   said at College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre replica jerseys will be on sale from Wednesday ahead of Saturday’s 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Group B qualifier against Algeria’s Desert Foxes.

He then urged all soccer loving Malawians to support them by buying the replica jerseys which is of high quality.

Principal Secretary in the ministry of sports, Justin Saidi thanked Umbro for the technical support they are giving to the Malawi national team.

Meanwhile, FAM has warned fans to buy tickets in advance as the sales will not be done on the day of the game against Algeria.

FAM General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda said the association was disappointed to note the sales started on slow note last week but have picked up.
Nyirenda appealed to the fans to buy tickets in advance to avoid last minute hustles.

He bashed Malawians for a tendency of leaving it to late which create unnecessary panic at the end.

“Fans are fond of waiting for the actual day of the match to buy tickets which creates confusion. Fifa also discourages the tendency of selling tickets at the match venue on the actual day of the game,” Nyirenda said.

The cheapest ticket for the Open Stands is going at K1, 000, with K3, 000 MBC Stand and K5, 000 Covered and K10, 000 for VIP.

Flames official sponsors Carlsberg Malawi raised the hype of the match by launching My Carlsberg, My Country Promotion which doled out 1,100 tickets to lucky customers for the brand stout and big bottle popularly known as petroda.

Meanwhile, Algeria are expected to arrive in the country on Thursday and would be offered a chance to have a feel of Kamuzu Stadium.

The Desert Foxes, who are leading Group B, with 6 points from two games, will also access the venue on Friday for a training session.

Malawi are on third position with 3 points after beating Ethiopia 3-2 and losing to Mali 2-0.Mali are on second with 3 points but they have a better goal aggregate than the Flames.

Truth be told, this jersey is but UGLY!!…. I cant believe our boys will be wearing something like this. this is what the likes of Patrick Mabedi used to wear during their time, you cant give that to Robin and expect him to be happy. the PUMA jersey was the best and Ine I cant buy that UGLY jersey at K15,000. FAM, Musove izi!!!
