Netball Association of Malawi (Nam) has disclosed that 400 teams have joined Airtel Money national netball trophy.
Nam general secretary, Carol Bapu, said they were yet to compile a list of teams from other districts.
“We are encouraged by the response, and chances that the number of teams can increase are still high,” she said.
Bapu said most districts had started the qualifying games, which will conclude this month.
Airtel Money marketing manager, Tione Kafumbu, said they were following the netball action with interest.
Airtel Malawi launched the K360 million three-year sponsorship in October 2013.
According to the contract, K70 million was earmarked for the Airtel Money national trophy annually while the Queens were entitled to about K25.7 million each year.
Currently, Tigresses are the two-time national defending champions.
