Moyale Barracks FC pens FAM; threatens to protest wanderers Carlsberg cup game


1.Reference is here-by made to your unfounded and disappointing choice of venue for the Carlsberg Cup semi-finals involving ourselves (Moyale FC) and Be Forward Wanderers FC.

2.We believe every competition in football is based on principles of fairness, sportsmanship and entertainment apart from marketing policy of the Sponsors that be. We have come to realise it has been your intention throughout this Competition to deliberately frustrate Moyale FC by scheduling all our games away from both our home ground and our fans/supporters who you are well aware that they are in Mzuzu. This is unfair considering that the other Three (3) Semi-finalists have been allowed to play at home infront of their Supporters/fans at least once since the competition started.

3.You are therefore reminded that when a team is travelling it incurs unwelcome costs that encompass fuel, wear and tears, food, accommodation, allowances and other unforeseen expenses. If a team travels always to participate in a Competition, which has never happened anywhere in the World, (team playing away always and wins a Competition) it will in any case use more resources than the ultimate prize money of the Competition, except when it is for charity. Therefore by forcing Moyale Barracks FC to play away from home, you are, in effect, subjecting the team to Zero return on resources even if it eventually wins the Competition.

4.We would like to believe that it is important for Carlsberg Malawi, Sponsors of the Competition, to market their products across the Country by ensuring that Northern Region and particularly Mzuzu customers get a glimpse of at least one quarterfinal- onward game of this years competition, and also to market their newly Oxygen refurbished plant in Mzuzu using such an opportunity. However with the choice of your venues, it appears more of a mockery to Northern Region Customers and in effect jeopardises the very purpose on why Carlsberg Malawi is continuing to Sponsor the Competition.

5.In conclusion we want to categorically state that the Venue be changed from Civo to Mzuzu Stadium inorder to enable our fans/Supporters and Carlsberg Malawi Customers in the Northern Region to watch their team. We would like to observe that this years competition has been a classic example of poor management, a supposed reflection of the current FAM administration which fails to see obvious unwelcome politics in football, and that it would not want to bring in the controversy of Moyale FC failing to pitch up at the Venue because of your apparent unfairness, unsportmanship and shear incompetence as regards to basic rules of the game of football. Of course as per your mediocre explanation, Civo Stadium is a neutral venue for Moyale FC and Be Forward Wanderers FC. What of Big Bullets FC playing Silver Strikers FC at Kamuzu Stadium? Is this a neutral venue?
