Malawian football fans push for return of league

Football fans in Malawi are demanding the return of local leagues, which were halted as a measure to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The fans, led by supporters of Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers, are arguing that there is no need to continue restriction of sporting activities while big political rallies are being held by politicians ahead of the June 23 presidential elections rerun.

Malawi’s Supreme Court nullified the presidential elections, which were held on May 8 and announced June 23 the new date for a rerun.

The Super League of Malawi was scheduled to start in March but was called off after the government imposed new measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The government banned gatherings of more than 100 people, but political rallies are seen until now, putting the lives of many at risk of contracting the virus.

Head of Football Association of Malawi (FAM) Walter Nyamalindu said he is consulting relevant stakeholders before making decisions on whether the league will resume or not.

Malawi has so far confirmed 82 cases of coronavirus, 28 recoveries and 3 deaths.
