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.
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.
