Alfred Gunda general secretary of Football Association of Malawi (FAM)has said the local soccer governing body is planning on acquiring uniforms especially designed for the women’s national football team.
At the moment Malawi women’s team uses men’s national team uniforms for training and matches.
“In terms of the numbers of uniforms that we have, we distinguished the distribution to the senior men, junior men and women’s teams.
“However, we plan to have specialised uniforms that the women can be identified with,” he said.
This have come about following complaints from some women’s football players that they are uncomfortable sharing uniforms with their male counter parts.
Tabitha Chawinga, Captain of women’s national team has welcomed FAM’s plan, saying “they will help to give us the dignity and respect that we deserve”.
In terms of diet and other things they get while in camp, Chawinga said they are satisfied as they have a special dietician who guides them and they are allowed to get into a gym to improve their physical fitness.
