The Super League of Malawi has allowed teams that will contest in the playoffs over the weekend to use players sold during the current transfer window.
The Super League playoffs will begin on Friday and end on Sunday this week at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda said the teams will be allowed to use players they sold earlier this year to help them in the play-offs.
“Teams are free to recall all the players they released in the ongoing transfer market, but they will be allowed to use players who are yet to be registered with the Super League association of Malawi,” said Banda.
Banda added that Wizards have sold 9 players during the ongoing transfer market but he was too quick to say that only 3 players have sold have been registered with Sulom.
The three registered players are therefore not eligible to play in the playoffs since they are officially no longer Wizards players
players who have been sold by Wizards include Ernest Tambe, Rafiq Namwera, Mark Fodya, Brighton Munthari, Levinson Maganizo, and Mike Mkwate.
According to Banda, Dedza Young soccer have only released 2 players but they can be used by the team since they are still unregistered.
Banda further said that teams will also be allowed to only register 5 new players if they want to beef up their squads ahead of the play-offs.
