SULOM to introduce midweek fixtures


Super League of Malawi (SULOM) has officially announced that midweek games will be incorporated into the 2024 TNM Super League calendar.

This was announced on a day the body was expected to release a revised schedule of matches in the ongoing campaign, which kicked off on 6 April.

SULOM’s communication also came 48 hours after it suspended Super League games following the declaration of a 21-day mourning period in Malawi after the death of State Vice President, Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima, and eight others, in a plane crash on Monday.

“Further to the communication from SULOM to release the revised fixture today, 14 June 2024, we wish to announce that the date has been revised to 18 June 2024.

“This follows the tragic passing of the State Vice President, Right Honorable Dr. Saulos Klaus Chilima along with eight others and the subsequent announcement of 21 days of mourning which has necessitated the cancellation of sporting activities.

“The comprehensive review of the 2024 Super League Fixture, considering concerns from clubs will introduce midweek fixtures to catch up with the 2024 football calendar,” communicated SULOM.

On Tuesday next week, clubs and fans will be expecting to hear from SULOM whether the games will resume immediately after the burial of the Vice President on Monday or will wait until the end of the 21-day mourning period in July.

Before the postponement of the games, FCB Nyasa Big Bullets were scheduled to play eighth-placed Creck Sporting Club away at the Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.

Going into Matchweek 10, Kalisto Pasuwa’s men will be looking to bounce back from the 1-0 home defeat against league leaders, Silver Strikers, at Kamuzu Stadium a fortnight ago.

After nine games this new campaign, Bullets are fifth in the standings with 14 points, 11 behind the Central Bankers, who are hoping to clinch their first league title in 10 years.
