TNM, sponsors of Malawi’s flagship Super League has attributed to the violence-free season to the magic of a mascot called Shasha.
TNM Chief Commercial Officer Dan Makata said unlike last season the season had run smoothly.
“In contrast to last year, the current season has run smoothly. No major incident of violence or acts of hooliganism was reported. While some cases of tension were noted in some matches these were dealt with administratively and did not amount to violence,” Makata said.
“TNM therefore wishes to thank football fans for responding positively to its anti-hooliganism campaign which was championed by mascot Shasha.”
He advised the teams against acts of violence and hooliganism because company would not like to dent its image through such immoral behaviour.
“Our goal is to completely banish violence and hooliganism which has been giving the beautiful game a bad name over the year,” he said.
He patted clubs and fans on the back for enforcing discipline in their clubs after last year’s unfortunate case of violence which claimed Be Forward Wanderers fans Lemiyasi Joster in a game against Silver Strikers.
“TNM wishes to register its appreciation to clubs, fans and football administrators for presiding over a violence-free season. The 2014 Super League season is ending on a high note because football stakeholders kept their promise to deal with acts of hooliganism and violence in football.”
Bullets were crowned champions with Moyale Barracks coming second, Blue Eagles third and Civo United fourth.
