Super league of Malawi (SULOM) has asked teams that play in the elite league to consider having women’s football sides as one way of helping the game to grow in the country.
Malawi which has produced top class women’s football stars, Tabitha and Temwa Chawinga does not have a national league for women’s football but according to SULOM president Tiya Somba Banda there is need to put much focus on the development of women’s football in the country hence the need for super league teams to consider establishing women’s football teams.
“We have a number of talented women in the game of football and have even strived to make a mark on the world stage talking of the Chawinga sisters for example who are playing for top teams in the Chinese super league.
“This should therefore be an ear opener to football administrators in the country that we need to be serious with women’s football and for that reason SULOM will take a step to ask teams playing in the elite league to consider having women’s football sides to enhance competition between these ladies as it is done by other clubs in Europe for example where we have a Liverpool men’s football team as well as a women’s football sides”, Somba Banda said.
All the 16 teams that play in the TNM super league do not have women’s football teams except for Ntopwa and Moyale Barracks football clubs who have Ntopwa super Queen’s and Moyale Sisters in the southern and northern regions respectively.
