The Malawi National Women’s Football team, the Scorchers, will go into camp next week in preparation for the COSAFA Women’s Championship set for this month end in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
About 30 players are expected to report for camp at the Mpira Village in Blantyre on Wednesday September 8.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has appointed McNerbert Kazuwa and Andrew Chikhosi as caretaker coaches as the Association is still finalising the process of recruiting a new permanent coach.
FAM Competitions and Communications Director, Gomezgani Zakazaka, said the team will remain in camp until departure for South Africa.
Zakazaka said: “The good thing is that the Regional Leagues have concluded and the players will be fully committed to the camp until they leave for South Africa.”
Scorchers are in Group A alongside defending champions South Africa, Angola and Mozambique.
They will open their campaign on September 28 against South Africa before facing Mozambique on October 1.
Their final match will be against Angola on October 4.
