Apart from watching the ongoing Cosafa Cup Competition currently underway in the Rainbow Nation of South Africa, Malawians will have a privilege of getting first hand information from someone on the ground as Malawian Airlines has donated a return air ticket worth K300, 000.00 to FAM’s Competitions Manager and Media officer Gomezgani Zakazaka.
This is the first time ever for the Flames to travel with a media personnel who according to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) will be responsible for updating all FAM media channels and updating the local media on Flames exploits throughout the Flames campaign.
The donation was made at the FAM offices at Chiwembe Technical Centre in Blantyre on Wednesday.
Malawian Airways Traffic and Sales Manager Rodwell Magwaya said they decided to sponsor the ticket to ensure the Flames get full coverage of the tournament.
“We are a national carrier and we want other national carriers like the Flames to be given full support and getting wide coverage is one of them. We felt it is proper that a team like the Flames should always be accompanied by media personnel,” said Magwaya.
“Malawians should be getting firsthand information from someone on the ground,” he added.
FAM Finance and Administration Manager Chris Mdolo thanked Malawian Airlines for the gesture saying it will help fans follow the Flames thoroughly.
He said as an association it has always been a wish to always have a media officer accompanying the team so that people back home are updated on events as they unfurl away.
“It becomes a challenge in most cases to get results or facts about the Flames trip due to lack of media personnel on the ground. We thank Malawian Airlines for the gesture and we believe this will turn into a long term relationship,” said Mdolo.
