Malawi’s mobile operator, TNM Ltd, and the official sponsors of the Super League, together with the Super League of Malawi (SULOM), have announced that they will review the current sponsorship package before the start of next season.
The development comes soon after some players complained that the package they were receiving was very little.
According to some concerned football fans, the current packages are not enough considering that the Country’s Kwacha currency is still depreciating.
According to our football reporters TNM is currently honouring their five year contract to sponsor the TNM Super League which sees them giving out K65 million per season, with the winner receiving K9 million from the 28 games played in the season.
Commercial Manager Sobhuza Ngwenya speaking in an interview said his company will sit down with SULOM to review the package.
“We have splashed K126 million this year in the just ended season. You are aware that we bought referees’ equipments plus many other things. Initially, our five year contract was to give out K65 million per season but we will sit down and review the sponsorship package,” said Ngwenya.
Soccer fans are said to be questioning TNM on why they are still giving out K65 million despite the high levels of living in the Country due to the depreciation of Kwacha.
A lot of fans prefers winning a cup than a league saying teams only play 4 games for them to be given K9 million, same amount of money but only playing few games.
