The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) wishes to clarify its position on the purported sponsorship of the Presidential nomination papers presentation programme on MBC Television.
The fact of the matter is that FAM did not sponsor any programme as portrayed. FAM entered into an agreement with MBC and Times Media Group to broadcast promotional 60 seconds spot adverts, and not programme sponsorship, for the Rough Diamonds Tournament which the Association hosted on 9th and 10th February 2019 at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
We further would like to assure all our stakeholders that FAM operates independently, professionally and is apolitical in the manner in which it conducts its affairs as per its statutes.
Issued on this 11th Day of February 2019.
