2022 FDH Bank Cup draw: Big guns avoid each other


The draw for the second edition of the prestigious FDH Bank Cup has been conducted at Mpira Village today, with some interesting fixtures lined-up.

Eight teams were seeded after they finished in the top eight of last season’s top Super League, with the remaining teams joining 16 regional leagues to make it 32.

Round of 32 will have three  Super League fixtures.

Defending champions Silver Strikers will take on Dedza Dynamos whilst Nyasa Big Bullets will be an away team when they face Sable Farming FC, with Rumphi United, the only side from the Regional League to make it into the semifinals of last year’s competition, will play host to Blue Eagles FC.

Last season’s runners up Ekwendeni Hammers will travel to Lilongwe to play Airborne Rangers as Mighty Mukuru Wanderers will host Kamuzu Barracks Reserves.

During the draw, Mervin Nkunika, FDH Bank’ Head of Marketing and Communications said regional teams who have made it to the national level will receive branded kits and a K500 000 token of appreciation.

The competition will roar into action from 2 July, 2022.
