FISD to sponsor Fam Cup

58

Soccer fans in the country have got all the reasons to smile following reports that the Foundation for Irrigation and Sustainable Development (FISD) is set to rescue the Football Association of Malawi (Fam) by sponsoring the Fam Cup.

The cup was until last week being sponsored by Standard Bank of Malawi.

Nyamilandu: set to announce new Fam Cup sponsors

According to information reaching Malawi24, the Fam president Walter Nyamilandu is set to announce FISD as the new sponsors on Monday at Chiwembe Technical Centre during a press briefing organised by the association.

Fisd used to sponsor Wizards FC but pulled out after Peter Mponda refused to relocate his side to Lilongwe.

However, it is not known as to how many years the organisation will sponsor the cup and the amount of money that will be pumped in.

Malawi24 has also been told by reliable sources that Fam has also struck a deal with a certain company to sponsor a yet to be established cup.
If all goes well, soccer fanatics will watch their beloved teams competing in more than four trophies this season.

Standard Bank pulled out last week after bankrolling the cup for seven years citing the current economic woes being experienced in the country.

  1. Anthu olima mukutaya nthawi ndi mpira. Mpira m’Malawi muno sudzapita patsogolo chifukwa cha atsogoleri adyera. Mpaka u life president zomwezi za mpirazi?????

  2. Please invest your money in many irrigation schemes not football. Irrigation is not well developed in this country for FISD to start sponsoring football.
    There is going to be hunger again in this country why is your thinking upside
    down.

  3. Thanks FIDS for the support and as for me I have already iCloud my account with Standard Bank. Let’s all those football lover close our accounts with Standard Bank adzazolowera

  4. kudyetsa dziko ndi ntchito ya boma mukufuna FISD ikhake Malawi govt? za ziiiii yawo ndi business basi ndipo simungauze zochita pa ndalama zawo mbuzi nonse

    • I like your mediocre thinking bro; it’s typical of the average Malawian. What kind of development theory are you using in your thinking? It’s quite funny, kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk! Malawi my country; mediocre thinking, miserable souls, no development…..

  5. FISD sponsoring football at a time when irrigated farming is still underdeveloped and the country is suffering from hunger!? Somebody should think twice and be serious. This country can’t develop when NGOs that are supposed to initiate socio-economic development lose focus like this. May be their name is misleading, I need to read their mission statement and grasp their vision first. But I don’t think my thinking is wayward anyway.

    We need serious NGOs that have the country’s development at heart and not these disorganised and disoriented NGOs that just want to make a name out of trivial issues. I used to fault Major 1 Shepherd Bushiri on a number of issues koma pano ndaona kuti biggie ameneyu ndi deal. He has money to sponsor all the foootball trophies in Malawi but he has chosen to distribute maize to the poor in remote areas. Pamene ma NGO ena amangodya ndalama za ma donors kumanama kuti akagawa zakudya ku lower Shire during the time of floods, mfanayu akuyuza dollar ya mthumba mwake. FISD should borrow a leaf from this Bushiri guy.

  6. Headless FISD. Completely lost direction. Typical of Atumbuka. Want to create more cash gate apertures. Come back home Mr. Tumbuka man and relieve your country of hunger.

  7. Total madness! at this point in time when Malawians are experiencing total acute food shortage_? Instead of using those monies to utilize the vast unused waters we have in this country for modern irrigation methods? Shame!! FAM CUP my foot!! Useless!

  9. Fisd please allocate these funds to intended purpose and not cashgating with WNY our waters are fast running into mozambique when they couldve been a substitute for scarce rainwater. Irrigation is your core function and you must practice that, soon well expose you to your sponsors, am concerned bcoz ur using FAM which is a public entity surving on malawians tax.
