Airtel dresses Top 8 teams

Blantyre, Airtel- Malawi on Friday presented Macron-branded kits to the eight teams that will compete in the Airtel top 8 Tournament ahead of the launch over the weekend with each team to receive a set of 30 pieces.

Speaking after presenting a kit to Be forward Wanderers, the company’s IT- PRM Senior Officer, Dan Matavata said they were excited with the third season which would see the competition going to three new venues.

For a start we are doing the launch in Blantyre and this is the first time that the commercial city will host an Airtel Top 8 match. For the past two editions, Kamuzu Stadium was closed and Blantyre missed the Airtel party.

But again for the first time, we will be going to Kasungu and as far as Karonga and this makes the Cup a truly national event, said Matavata.

FAM Competitions and Communications Director Gomezgani Zakazaka said all is set to get the cup rolling with three fixtures lined up for this weekend.

On Saturday, Be Forward Wanderers host Silver Strikers at Kamuzu Stadium in a repeat of the inaugural year final while newcomers TN Stars and Karonga United will battle it out at Kasungu Stadium.

On Sunday, Kamuzu Barracks will face Masters Security at Civo Stadium.

FAM has since announced that tickets for all the three matches will be sold on match days at the respective venues.

At the Kamuzu Stadium, Open stand tickets are going at K 1,500, MBC Stand K2, 000, Covered Stand K4, 000 and VIP Stand K6, 000.

In Kasungu, open stand ticket will be sold at K1000 and Covered Stand at K 3000 while at Civo Stadium the tickets for Open, Covered and VIP are pegged at K 1000, K2000 and K3000 respectively.
