Super League of Malawi has cleared a cloud of uncertainty surrounding the relegation battle in Malawi’s top league.
Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda said the executive committee resolution to extend the league to 16 would not be effective this season.
Banda said this season SULOM would maintain the tradition of demoting three teams and promoting three teams.
“We are going to relegate three teams and promote three regional teams as it has been the case. We are going to start implementing what we agreed during our executive committee meeting,” Banda said.
“This might take even time especially in the 2017.”
He said there were a lot of issues to be sorted out to avoid creating confusion when implementing this decision.
Following the declaration that SULOM would increase the number of teams to 16 for the league to have an even number so that no team would be on bye there has been a lot of talk on the fate of three teams fighting relegation.
Currently FISD Wizzards who on bottom of the table, Epac FC and Airborne Rangers are destined for relegation with less than three weeks before the end of the season.
Bullets won the league after managing unassailable 57 points and have three games to wrap the season.
