Super league of Malawi (SULOM) has asked teams that play in the elite league to give out suggestions on what should be incorporated by the sponsors Telecom Networks Malawi (TNM) company limited as the two sides have opened up talks for a possible new deal.
The current sponsorship package from TNM of K90 million per season ends in December 2020 with the company seeking for a potential extension to stay in the game and talks have already started between the two sides according to SULOM president Tiya Somba Banda. The elite league governing body has been seeking ideas from clubs on what to be incorporated in the next package.
“TNM limited company has shown interest to continue sponsoring the league and we had a visual meeting with them last week where we highlighted a number of things but as the league is for the people of the country, the clubs at large, we have asked them to give us ideas on what the next sponsorship package should include so that we see how it can be considered and we should present that during our next meeting with the sponsors in June.
“We are doing all this to see how we can improve the game in the country and we will try to clinch a sponsorship package which will bring a win win situation between the clubs and the sponsors and football in general in the country”, Banda said.
Teams are expecting to have an improved package from TNM company limited if they are to renew the partnership with SULOM in terms of money as the winner of the league takes home K15 million which is said not to be enough compared to what teams spend during the season.
