Moyale Barracks have threatened that they will not play against Mighty Be Forward Wanderers in the Carlsberg Cup semi-finals at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe, asking Football Association of Malawi (FAM) to reschedule the fixture to Mzuzu Stadium, their base.
The club has made their position known in a letter sent to FAM signed by team’s general secretary Lieutenant PMK Gausi.
“We believe every competition in football is based on the principle of fairness, sportsmanship and entertainment apart from marketing policy of the sponsors. We have come to realization that it has been your intention throughout the competition to deliberate and frustrate Moyale Barracks by scheduling all our games away from our home ground and supporters whom you are well aware that they are based in Mzuzu,” reads part of the letter seen by Nyasa Times.
Moyale claimed this year’s competition has been “a classic example of poor management, a supposed reflection of current FAM administration which fails to see obvious unwelcome politics in football.”
Reads the letter: “We would not want to bring in a controversy of Moyale Barracks fail to pitch in on the venue of the competition because of your apparent unfairness, un sportsmanship and shear incompetence as regards to basic rules of the game of football.”
Moyale queried FAM’s “mediocre explanation,” that Civo stadium is a neutral venue for Moyale FC and Wanderers, querying “how about Big Bullets and Silver Strikers is Kamuzu stadium a neutral venue?”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
