The Carlsberg Cup is back for 2015 after Carlsberg Malawi extended its contract with FAM for one more year.

The Company’s senior brands manager for Alcoholics Twikale Chirwa said the Company decided to continue sponsoring the competition after being impressed with last year’s competition.

The competition last year was so exciting as we saw a non top flight league side reach the final for the first time. So we did not hesitate to continue sponsoring this tournament after our initial three year contract with FAM expired last year, said Chirwa.

FAM general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda thanked Carlsberg for continuing investing in Malawi football.

Carlsberg does a lot for Malawi football, they are the official sponsors of the National Football team and grassroots football through the Copa Cocacola Schools Cup and we don’t take that for granted. We promise to deliver a successful and exciting competition again this year, said Nyirenda.
