Moyale Barracks FC has written Football Association of Malawi (FAM) questioning choice of venue for the Carlsberg Cup semi-finals involving team and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers FC, saying the body is being unfair to the club.
According to a letter addressed to FAM signed by the club’s General Secretary Lieutenant P M K GAUSI seen by Malawi-sports.com, the club is asking FAM to reverse its decision and allow the match to be played at Mzuzu Stadium.
“We believe every competition in football is based on principles of fairness, sportsmanship and entertainment apart from marketing policy of the Sponsors that be. We have come to realise it has been your intention throughout this Competition to deliberately frustrate Moyale FC by scheduling
all our games away from both our home ground and our fans/ supporters who you are well aware that they are in Mzuzu.
“This is unfair considering that the other Three (3) Semi- finalists have been allowed to play at home in front of their Supporters/fans at least once since the competition started,” reads in part the letter.
Adds the letter: “You are therefore reminded that when a team is travelling it incurs unwelcome costs that encompass fuel, wear and tears, food, accommodation, allowances and other unforeseen expenses. If a team travels always to participate in a Competition, which has never happened anywhere in the World, (team playing away always and wins a Competition) it will in any case use more resources than the ultimate prize money of the Competition, except when it is for charity.”
Moyale has since threatened not to honour the fixture if FAM will stick to its decision.
