Super League of Malawi (Sulom) have clarified on the reasons behind the shifting of the Mafco versus Mighty Be Forward Wanderers match from Chitowe in Dwangwa-Nkhotakota to Civo Stadium in Lilongwe in TNM Super League.
Initially, Mafco uses Chitowe Stadium as its home ground but it was surprising to note that Week 7 fixture released by Sulom this week indicated that The Salima based soldiers will host the Nomads at Civo.
According to Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda, the change is just normal.
“At the beginning of every season, each team chooses its home ground as well as an altenative home ground so there is nothing unusual. Mafco chose Chitowe as their home ground and Civo as an altenative home ground”, said Banda.
He went on to reveal that Mafco appealed that all their games against giants clubs such as Silver Strikers, Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers to be hosted at Civo.
“These are big clubs and their games attract huge patronage so Mafco also had an insight of generating more gate revenues through playing at a bigger stadium like Civo” said Banda.
He therefore refuted claims that Mafco FC are being forced to play in the Capital City as part of sanctions and punishment for causing violence at one of their Super League games played at their initial home ground-Chitowe a season ago.
