Speaking during the unveiling ceremony, which took place at Mpira House in Chiwembe, Fam president Walter Nyamilandu hailed Fisd for the sponsorship as he opened his speech saying, “When one door closes another one open.”

“I am very thankful to Fisd because there has been a lot of talk when Standard Bank left us. Some people thought we will be left in the cold but l am glad the vaccum has been filled at a short time,” said a delighted Nyamilandu, who received a loud of applause from a fully packed John Zingale Theatre room.

“There was a man on the road who was stranded, hungry and people were just passing without bothering to help him, but a certain good Samaritan stopped and bailed out that hungry man. Fisd bailed out Fisd Wizards when they had no sponsor in the Super League last year. Today they have done it again to FAM by bailing us out at the time when Standard bank left out stranded. It takes a man with a good heart and let us all salute Fisd,” said Nyamilandu.

Nyamilandu described the coming of Fisd to sponsot the cup as “timely”.

“It takes companies with a good will like Fisd to give money towards social responsibilities particularly when you know that this company is a local entrepreneur. Let us all give a loud applause to Fisd because we have well established companies in this country that cannot cough K40 million, let alone K10 million, let alone K5 million but these are young Malawians. It does not mean that they are rich but they have a passion of football and they want to share the little they have to the general public,” said Nyamilandu.

He also assured Fisd that they will work hand in hand with their company by selling their brand in all the corners of this country.

“We want your brand to be known everywhere in this country. Whoever has a contract whether it is farming, irrigation, solar panels first thing they must think of is Fisd,” he said.

Nyamilandu also asked Malawians to stop the pulling each other down syndrome stating it was sad that some people celebrated the pull out of Standard bank cup.

“It is amazing how fellow Malawians want to pull each other down. It is sad that some people celebrated when Standard bank announced its pull out in sponsoring the Knock-out cup. This is our country and we must wish each other well,” said Nyamilandu.

In his remarks, Fisd Limited Company Managing Director Frank Mwenechanya said they thought it wise to sponsor a cup as one of their social responsibility.

“As a local company we have clocked 10 years and we said why we can’t celebrate with Malawians, who have showed trust since we established our company in 2005,” he said.

Only Super League teams will compete for the cup, and more details and kick-off date will be announced later.

if its fisd ,why then you put the umbro background? is fisd under umbro? your marketing a bland that’s not helping you!!!!

the background should have been that of fisd.

Again, what’s k40 000 000 ? if bullets and Norma are able to make 27 000000 in a single match why then accepting such little money when you know you will benefit slot than players…….

shame to our football.
