Carlsberg Malawi Limited, a company under conglomerate Press Corporations Limited (PCL), has abruptly withdrawn from sponsorship of Bullets FC and Mighty Wanderers.
The company committed to year-long sponsorship at K15 million (about $38 000) each.
Carlsberg has communicated its decision to the affected clubs but Football Association of Malawi
(FAM) were yet to get the letter.
The company’s Chief Executive, Albel Chanje, warned about conditions attached to the sponsorship–fair play and
discipline in the game – which if not followed would quickly bring to an end its support.
Almost 8 years ago, Carlsberg withdrew the prestigious Carlsberg Cup because of hooliganism at the stadiums.
But they are now sponsoring the cup at the tune of K20 million.
Bullets and Wanderers officials reserved their immediate comment.
