Mighty Wanderers have been struggling after losing their long time sponsorship from MTL.
Carlsberg Malawi offered a short-term two- year sponsorship to Wanderers alongside their
rivals Bullets worth K15 million each year.
But the country’s brewery giant withdrew on controversial grounds in the wake of acts of
violence to opt for national cup sponsorship.
