Relief for FAM as they receive money from FIFA


Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has received money from the world football government body FIFA to help them sustain all their set plans during the hard time as the world has been affected by the corona virus pandemic.

FIFA has given $500 000 (K365 million) to FAM under the FIFA forward 2.0 program to be used by the FA and it’s affiliates as most sporting disciplines including football have been affected financially since the pandemic started last month which led to the suspension of most leagues across the globe.

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu Manda who is also part of the FIFA council member has commended the football governing body for rescuing the FA with money which should go a long way in as far as sorting out a number of issues which need attention at the moment when the corona virus pandemic is still among us.

But one of the country’s sports analyst George Chiusiwa has stressed the need for the FA to use the money wisely so that it bare the desired fruits.

“It’s a good thing hearing that FIFA has bailed the FA by giving them such an amount of money at a time like this when the world has been hit by the corona virus pandemic but it’s my prayer that the money should be used for the rightful and intended purposes that it has been given for,” Chiwuza said.
