The Football Association of Malawi (FAM), has given super league football clubs a chance to withdraw their money amounting to K1, 000,000 which the clubs paid to FAM as Club Licensing commitment fee for the year 2020 football season.
According to FAM’s General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, the decision was arrived after the football governing body reviewed the status of the effect of Coronavirus on the clubs.
Last month, FAM joined other football associations across the world in suspending domestic football games due to the outbreak of coronavirus.
The directive followed President Peter Mutharika’s decision to declare Malawi a State of Disaster due to the pandemic.
Gunda said: “This money would go towards supporting / cushioning key expenditures the clubs are incurring as a result of the football season suspension.”
He therefore requested all clubs to confirm with FAM in writing so as to give FAM a go ahead with the transferring of funds accordingly.
According to Super League of Malawi (Sulom) calendar, the 2020 TNM super league was supposed to start on April 11.
