Due to financial problems rocking the newly promoted Nchalo United Football Club, the team has indirectly pulled out of TNM Super League.
This has been disclosed in a letter addressed to Super League of Malawi (SULOM) and copied to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) signed by the Club’s General Secretary Beston Malunga.
“The Executive Committee of Nchalo Football Club would like to inform you that the club will not be able to honor its fixtures for this weekend and beyond.
“This regrettable decision has been necessinated by the financial challenges the committee is facing in running the daily affairs of the club.As it is currently the club has no money and already deep in debt. Efforts have been made to try and sustain the running of the club, but the club is at a point where it cannot continue any more,” reads in part the letter.
Added Malunga: “Until the financial situation changes for the better, the club will not take part in the TNM Super League or any competition. Nchalo United regrets any inconveniences this may cause.”
Nchalo United Football Club was scheduled to play Kamuzu Barracks at Kasungu Stadium and Civil Sporting Club at Civo Stadium on Saturday, Sunday respectively.
The development means the two teams will be awarded three points each.
In 2016 Max Bullets also pulled out of TNM Super League due to a similar problem and the team was banned by Football Association Malawi.
Meanwhile SULOM is yet to comment on the matter.
