Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu Manda is hopeful that the 2020 season is going to resume despite government imposing new measures to be followed against the spread of coronavirus.
On Saturday, the government banned all gatherings of more than 10 people which has given doubts to football loving Malawians of the season start anytime soon.
But Nyamilandu said the FA developed a high-level road map on how football is expected to resume in the country and the new rules might allow the sport to resume but without fans allowed to watch games at stadiums.
“Despite the new measures which the government has put in place to be followed as we prevent the spread of coronavirus, football games might be allowed to start but without fans allowed to watch games at different stadiums.
“Government is considering the safety of our lives first before it can allow everything to start as normal and they are aware that football is one aspect of the social-economic lives of Malawians as it provides a source of income and entertainment and we hope they will allow the season to start,” said Nyamilandu.
The 2020 season was called off 24 hours to kick off on 20th March as it restricted the gathering of more than 100 people to prevent the spread of coronavirus which has denied fans action in the TNM super league, Airtel top 8, FISD challenge cup and even games involving the Malawi national football team.
