The Players Welfare Fund was expected to be implemented by sourcing its funds through gate collections while Super League clubs have refused such development.

During the last weekend, seven matches were played but none of the 14 Super League teams gave three percent of their share for this welfare. The clubs who opened Super League this season, Nyasa big Bullets and Moyale Barracks agreed not to remit the given percent.

The problem which led to such development is that many areas were not clear explained to clubs.

“There are also questions as to who qualifies to benefit from the funds and at the end of the day, the clubs said they would only remit the funds once such questions are answered,” spoke the stadium supervisor Charles Mhango.

Bullets acting general secretary Kelvin Moyo also commented on this development said that they could not give up the funds in the absence of player welfare Fund account to deposit the money into.

Mike Butao the general secretary of Wanderers confirmed they also did not remit their share after game against Silver Strikers in Lilongwe on Sunday.

“From what I know, this Players welfare Fund is not going to start immediately. I was at the stakeholders meeting where it was in fact, agreed that the Players welfare Committee will meet and devise a plan on how to implement this initiative. The committee will then come back to us to explain everything,” he said.

Sulom general secretary Williams Banda accepted their vague knowledge and  promised to they would seek direction on the way forward from Football Association of Malawi.
