TNM plc, sponsors of the top-flight Super League,  have assured that they are committed to develop the game of football into another level and  assured the soccer fraternity that they will continue sponsoring the elite league in the country.

Valentine: TNM ‘always with you’

The acting chief executive officer for TNM, Eric Valentine made the remarks on Saturday at the 2018 TNM gala awards  held at Cross Roads Hotel in Blantyre

Valentine said TN, acknowledge the role that sports plays in the socio-economic development of the country and  his company is ready to meet with stakeholders later in the year to see how best they can move forward with the game of football in the country

“We will start negotiations in 2019 and the talking point will be how best we can take Super League to new dimension ,the issue will not only tackle on how we can take the game into higher level but we should be involved in the long run and not just about us contributing higher height.

“We should look at developing the game at grassroots and professional level like reaching youths in primary and secondary  schools,it’s not just about TNM sponsorship but how would we create more wealth outside the sponsorship,”Valentine said.

Super league of Malawi (Sulom) General Secretary,Williams Banda commended sponsors sentments saying commercialisation of the game is the key if we are to develop the game of football in the country.

“We started with the commercialisation of the game,and by looking at the tendency of commercialisation we will be able to create a customer base that will benefit TNM so that we have 50-50 benefit in the game,”said Banda

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) says they are pleased with the step taken by TNM in their quest improve the game.

FAM’s executive member Daudi Ntanthiko said they are eager to see things done fairly and his body is excited  looking at the fact that TNM’s door is open for negotiations

“We as Football Association of Malawi we want to have a say in all the contracts being signed out there,it is our plea that when time comes for the re-negotiations of this particular agreement we will also be there because we want something to be done fairly and we are happy that TNM is ready for that particular discussion,”he said.

TNM’s sponsorship contract  with Sulom expires in 2020 and there prospects that they might be signing a new deal.

Super league of Malawi should tender the league . That is the only way. Tnm should not capture Fam. Tender it. We will get value . This tnm is contributing towards the poor performance of our teams. . Stingy sponsor . Look at its Board of directors. No one has ever played football.. when they walk in suits what you are curved legs

With due respect we appreciate what your company is doing for the country and football I personally ask you to put the price money as follows and note it can be on tax concession if u can find out or write MRA then only Malawi football will come up as players will fight for the top prizes as if a team plays the whole season they spent more then mk120 million and wen they win the league they get a mere
Mk 15 million doesn’t make sense.
Winners Mk 250 million
2nd place mk100 million
3rd place 75 million
4th place 35 million

I totally agree with you Hassan, TNM is contributing to the poor standards of our football with their mediocre sponsorship.
