Malawi Pool Association (MAPA) has announced the cancellation of its Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for the month of February until June.
MAPA General Secretary Saulos Thindwa made the announcement after the association launched a K1 Million national pool league in Lilongwe.
According to Thindwa, the shifting is as result of financial constraints the association is going through.
“We have postponed the elections in February due to financial constraints and we have given ourselves at least five months to prepare well and raise enough money to have a successful AGM” Thindwa said.
Commenting on the newly launched national pool league, Thindwa said teams will first compete at regional level where one winner from each region will be identified and compete at national level to find the national champion.
He said the decision to start at regional level has been reached upon to cut travelling costs for the teams.
MAPA received a K2 Million annual funding from government through Malawi Sports Council of which half of the amount will be prize money for the national pool tournament while the other half will be used for administration issues.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
