Govt gives hope on Presidential Cup


Malawi government through Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) has assured the general public that it will continue with the Presidential Cups next year.

Confirming the development, executive secretary for MNCS, George Jana, said funds are ready for the project and preparations are underway.

“At this time we have started the preparations and will meet with respective bodies for different sporting activities to discuss the way forward,” Jana told the media.

About two years now have gone since Presidential Football Cup was played because government refused to refund the money meant for the cup that was used up by Malawi national football team for a match against Nigeria in the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.

PIS was introduced in the country in the year 2009 by former head of state, late Bingu Wa Mutharika, as one way of promoting sports in the country.
