Flames managed to beat  Uganda’s Cranes 1-0 at Kamuzu Stadium to book themselves a place for AFCON tournament to take place in Cameroun in January 2021.

The company has also given the lone goal scorer Richard Mbulu K500,000.

The companies sponsorship coordinator, Violet Kapolo, said: “We are delighted that the national football team delivered according to the nation’s expectations by beating Uganda 1-0 and reach the Africa Cup of Nations finals.

“So, this afternoon, we are honouring our pledge. We wish it would have been more but the current economic situation restricted us.”

She said going forward, they would like to partner the Flames and Football Association of Malawi (FAM) in a big way ahead of Africa Cup of Nations finals slated for Yaunde, Cameroon.

“As CORI we are determined to do that in a big way. However, we can do that only if our sales pick up. Having said that, we wish the Flames well as they are about to begin World Cup qualifiers and preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations,” she said.

But this type of sponsorship should be discouraged, if our football is to develop. We don’t need one match partners. FAM should tell potential sponsors to adopt the FDH model, sign a partnership agreement.

Have you ever seen when France won World Cup, Total paid players money, or when Germany won it Siemens paid players money?

The flames doesn’t need miscellaneous sponsors who are here today and not there tomorrow when the team needs support. Kukoma are just opportunists traders who exploiting the flames’ victories for marketing purposes. FAM wake up please

Very good. Though this isn’t supposed to be a once off initiative

hey, well done CORI. What are other marketing companies doing with their surplus? CORI has given back to the customers by assisting the national team, yet other are busy criticising CORI
