Six top flight TNM Super League teams are expected to clash against each other in the round of 32 phase of the 2017 Carlsberg Cup edition.
This follows a draw which was conducted on Tuesday at the Mpira Village in the Commercial City of Blantyre which was facilitated by Football Association of Malawi (FAM) General Secretary Alfred Gift Gunda and Carlsberg Malawi Limited Senior Brands Manager for Alcoholic Beverages Twikale Chirwa.
League strugglers and giants Nyasa Big Bullets have been handed a tricky assignment against Civil Sporting Club which was formally called Civo Service United FC.
Another all Super League affair will involve Premier Bet Wizard and Zomba based soldiers side Red Lions who have had an impressive start in the 2017/18 league season.
Nkhotakota based Dwangwa United will face Mzuni FC while defending champions Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have been drawn against a lower league side and less fancied Fish Eagles.
