Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Top Sports the organizers of the yet to be introduced Zambezi International Soccer Challenge have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) after reaching an agreement on how the competition will be managed.
FAM competitions Manager Gomezgani Zakazaka said the signing of the MoU gives the company a go ahead to stage the competition between 15th and 16th February, 2014 as they planned.
“This means the competition is licensed and Top Sports can now go ahead to stage it on 15 and 16 as planned because we are happy with the terms” said Zakakazaka.
Top Sport Events Manager Nicole Alibaba said the voting process for Super League teams to participate is currently underway.
“The numbers to be used [in voting] are 0888 831 484 and 0994 279 070 and fans can vote for one team of their choice” said Alibaba.
According to Alibaba, the voting process will run for a period of two weeks.
Meanwhile, the Football Association of Malawi has not commented on whether Mighty Wanderers and Silver Strikers will take part or not as the two teams were slapped with a ban following stampede that happened at Balaka stadium few weeks ago where one person died and several others got injured.
“The consultation process is still on but as at now, our position is that since the two teams have appealed, they can be given the benefit of the doubt unless Sulom appeals committee upholds the earlier decision” Zakazaka said.
