    I think we should take an example from other leagues like Premier, La Liga, Bundas Liga from Europe. Big teams have their own competitions and trophies. I have never heard of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester United taking part with small teams in the same cup.

    Malawi should also give chance to small teams to sort each other out. Taking Big Bullets to play with MDF Marine is just like taking a Standard 8 pupil to compete with a Form 4 Student in top of the Class quiz contest. This is a miss match.

    My point is that the Presidential Cup should be strictly for teams from the village or lower leagues. We should also give chance to up coming players to show their talent. Big clubs have their own competetions. Please FA come with a good plan.
