Women’s football game free for all: Malawi faces Mozambique in Olympic qualifier

Football Association of Malawi (FAM)  has announced that the 2020 Olympic first leg qualifier  between Malawi Women’s Football National team and Mozambique  at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Thursday will be free of charge for all.

Women’s team captured during Tuesday’s trainning session.

FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda said the association  made the decision to encourage w Malawians to fully support the women’s national football team as they play their first competitive game at home since 2012.

“We would like to see our women’s football team being supported by all Malawians. This is not the first time as we did it before in 2016 and 2012. We want to encourage more Malawians to come and appreciate our women stars.

“We have big name stars in Chawinga sisters Tabitha and  Temwa who have shone in Europe and beyond but most Malawians have never seen them play at home. So this is the opportunity for Malawians to watch them,” said Gunda.

Women’s team head coach Abel Mkandawire has hailed FAM for the initiative saying this will boost morale for the girls.

The team’s last home outing in a competitive match was a 4-2 win over Zambia in a 2012  Women’s AFCON qualifier back in Janaury 2012.

Yes, it does now but when I posted my comment there was no mention of Thursday.

Did FAM happen to mention when the game will be played? (The answer is “yes”, and NT have carelessly omitted it from their article.)
