FA Malawi disowns fake new kit design for Flames

Football Association of Malawi (FAM)  has disowned a new kit design that has been circulating on social media saying it is fake.

This kit is fake, says FAM

FAM commercial and marketing director Limbani Matola said the design is a mockery to what they are currently working on after severing ties with UK sports gear Umbro in November last year.

“FAM has learnt with great surprise and concern that some unscrupulous individuals are circulating a fake design of Malawi national team uniform. Our position is that Malawians should  treat the matter as social media gossip and fake news,” Matola said.

“For now we feel duty bound to clarify that the purported Malawi national team kit design making rounds on social media is nowhere close to what we are currently working on.”

FAM has since appealed to the soccer fraternity not to take it seriously as the association would make a formal official communication.

“We therefore advise Malawians to simply ignore it,” he said. At an appropriate time we shall unveil the new and  authentic Malawi national team kit using our formal and official communication platforms.

FAM and Umbro parted ways after a three-year contract after the deal flopped as the association struggled to sell 10,000 replica jerseys during the period.

This deal followed Puma and Adidas which did not yield the much needed results.

Kalulu 2017

The football national team is fake. FAM is fake. The country is fake. The old president is fake. Our national budget is fake. Our roads are fake. Hospitals are fake. Escom is fake. Electricity and water bills are fake. PAC is fake. The clergy are fake. Parliament is fake. So nothing matters with this fake uniform. After all we are a fake nation of fake citizens. Fake is the new reality in Malawi


hahaha this is incredible Kalulu – I salute you boss.
in the land of fake ‘everything’, what’s there to worry about a fake football kit.
Kalulu, if there was a vote for ‘ super reader’s comments’ on Nyasatimes, I would vote for your comment – and that’s not fake by the way.


Wow! Kit ndiye imeneyi. FAM tisanamizane kit yanu ija does not motivate anyone let alone players. That’s why tikumaluza there’s no prizde in it. This kit you call fake is as inspiring as the Queen’s jersey. Please FAM ife taikonda imeneyi basi.


No smoke without fire. I believe it is the same just that they dont want us to know mwachangu. This looks good to be honest..!


this is the best kit than china chija cha umbro….just consult the design or copy this


Wow this Jersey is better than the one there about to design ,Fam dont waist your time this is our jersey now

ananveruwa akumalowa

Kunena zoona ma guys if this is true aaaaah nde iri bo iku beba ndipo munthu osewerayo atha kumanvaso kukoma ,ngakhale atakhala osatha mpira aaaaaaaaaa inu unganyindirire naweso ku bwizako njomba ,olo nditha ivala ineyo imeneyo mungadabwetu kuzabwiza njomba kuzauzunguza mpira ku phulitsa chi buleti ndikuzamenyesa chitsulo denja anvekere Goloooooooh Chikanakhala chigoli.


I think there must be a fourth color for the kit, and I would prefer white, a neutral color for away games.


In my opinion, even though it’s purported to be fake, the design looks appealing and would give the Flames a colorful and superior look. I hope what FAM has in mind is better looking otherwise, I have never been impressed with FAM’s kit design choices.


A fake kit for a fake national team looks nice and tight!!!


Bola imeneyi koma.
