Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda has assured Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Primary schools around Blantyre City that the newly revived Mayor’s trophy is here to stay.
The competition involves boys and girls in primary schools who compete in football and netball.
Chalamanda was speaking after receiving a donation of 10 high quality adiddas footballs from FAM led by its President Walter Nyamilandu.
“W are happy to bring back the lost glory the Mayor’s trophy had 10 years ago and we will rely on support from the experts here at Fam to ensure it is well organized,” said Chalamanda.
On his part, Nyamilandu said during the 10 year absence of Mayor’s trophy, the country has significantly lost great talent that is produced in primary schools.
He therefore expressed gratitude towards the return of the competition and pledged maximum support both technical and material.
“So now that it is back, we will give it all the support both material and technical. We are here to develop football and these are the projects that will help us achieve our developmental projects,” said the FAM boss.
Mayor’s trophy has been revived this year by the youthful Blantyre City Mayor after been abandoned a decade ago.
The Blantyre Mayor’s trophy is being sponsored to the tune of K10 million and it involves promary schools around the city of Blantyre.
