TNM Super League suspended


The TNM Super League will be suspended for three weeks, the Super League of Malawi (SULOM) has announced.

The elite league governing body made the announcement Tuesday morning.

“The TNM Super League will go on a three-week recess in order to observe the newly gazetted COVID-19 prevention laws announced by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 [on Monday],” SULOM states in a media release signed by the body’s general secretary.

SULOM says the decision has been arrived at following the clarification by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 that the restrictions of public gatherings to 50 people include athletes.

“With the new FIFA five substitutes rule, players are already 20 per team (40) plus seven technical officers (14) thus the total number of teams on the pitch is already at 54.

“This excludes match officials, the media, paramedics, stewards and Police. With the new laws in place, it is, therefore, impossible to have a match played under minimum requirements as stipulated by world football governing body FIFA,” explains the body.

SULOM further states that it will fully comply with the newly gazetted laws to fight the pandemic, which has left Malawi recording 13,027 cases and 321 deaths.
