The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has officially announced that Big Bullets will play old town rivals Mighty Wanderers in the Charity Shield cup on 2 April, a week before the start of the 2016 season.
The Fa’s competitions manager Gomezgani Zakazaka made the announcement on Saturday afternoon soon after the end of the association’s Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) at Mpira Village in Blantyre.
“Innitially, the Super League winner was supposed to play Presidential Cup winner but because we didn’t have that competition, Carlsberg Cup winner will play the league champions,” he said.
Bullets won the Super League whilst Wanderers won the Carlsberg Cup last season. According to Zakazaka, this will mark the begining of the shield cup organised by the Fa which has never been played before when a season is about to kick off.
In England, Barclays English Premier League winner plays an FA Cup winner in a Charity Shield just before kicking off the new season.
