FA Malawi suspends Nyasa BB, 11 other clubs over licensing system
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has suspended 2015 TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets, Standard Bank Cup 2015 champions Civo United and other teams include Azam Tigers, Kamuzu Barracks , Moyale barracks , Mzuzu University, Blue Eagles ,MAFCO, EPAC FC from any football related activities for failing to submit relevant documents pertaining to club licensing system.
Apart from Red Lions, Silver Strikers, Dwangwa United and Be Forward Wanderers, the rest of the Super League clubs are behind schedule in phase two of the licensing system which fell between October 1 and January 31 timeline and involved submitting clubs’ youth development programme, financial statements, constitutions, players contracts and setting up permanent secretariat.
Club licensing manager Casper Jangale said aid the suspended teams have up to 14th February to submit their documents as failing which the documents shall not be received beyond that and it shall lead to sanctions and most severe one will be no participation in 2016 football season
He said FAM had twice warned the clubs on the consequences of their failure to follow the road map.
“If a newly promoted club like Dwangwa United can manage to fulfil some of the requirements, what more with an established club like Nyasa Big Bullets? It just shows that some of these clubs are not serious. Imagine, a club failing to even produce their bank account number?” said Jangale.
Jangale said now the association will be visiting the teams to inspect if indeed what has been written in their documents submitted to FAM are true before they enter into next phase of Coaching qualifications, Players contracts and Financial statements
Meanwhile, Nyasa Bullets said they would utilise the 14-day window to submit the relevant documents.
“We had to finalise the sponsorship deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company before turning to the club licensing issue,” Bullets chairperson Sam Chilunga said.
And Azam Tigers chairperson Sydney Chikoti also said the club will “ fulfil it within the stipulated time.”

There are some people who are castigating Nyamilandu on this issue, but I say “thumbs up” to Walter and his FAM. People need to understand that the only way football is going to improve in Malawi is through club licensing, clubs owning stadiums and club houses, clubs having youth academies and reserve teams, and clubs giving professional contracts to players. Most people who are carrying out technical and administrative duties at clubs in Malawi, are not serious and are not qualified.This is the reason Malawian football has been in mediocrity for a long time.
