Malawi’s Taskforce on Covid-19 okays resumption of sporting activities in the country

Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers in action

Presidential taskforce on Covid-19 has on Thursday announced that after an assessment the sporting activities in the country can resume on 17 October, 2020 with team trainings, while observing the preventive measures against the pandemic.

The taskforce has also said Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Super League of Malawi (SULOM) can then strike a date on when the national top league will kick off.

Speaking on behalf of the taskforce, Chairperson of the committee, Minister of Health, Khumbize Kandodo Chiponda, said the committee will also issue their stand on whether or not bystanders will be allowed to patronise the games.

“The issue was about the national team which has already commenced and the second phase includes the others like super league and everything else. Now their proposal was that they should start the trainings on 17th of October. So, we have agreed to that that teams should start training. But prior to that of course, they have to watch all the measures. Like the international teams, they have to do testing, addressing of the issues and testing of all support staff. The idea is we just want to keep everybody safe that there should be no new transmissions,” said Kandodo.

Last week, the committee gave a nod to the Malawi national team, the Flames, to be in camp in preparation for Central and Southern African Football Associations (Cosafa) and African Cup of the Nations (Afcon) slated to take place in October and November this year respectively.
