Caps United have rescheduled their tour of Malawi for warm-up matches from this month to May, the Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League club’s chief executive officer Joe Makuvire confirmed on Thursday.
“We wanted to come on the weekend of February 24, but there was a complication as the league there was not over. We have now shifted it to May. We want to spend two weeks and play Mighty Wanderers, Big Bullets and Silver Strikers in Blantyre and Lilongwe,” Makuvire said in a telephone interview.
Last week, Caps communication officer Joyce Kapote confirmed the trip to Malawi through Zimbabwe’s News Day online edition of February 27 2013.
“I regret to advise that the Malawi league has been extended and it will finish on the 24 February. Both our club and Big Bullets will play a game each on Sunday 24 February,” the newspaper quoted Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda’s letter to Kapote.
“We, therefore, advise you to reschedule your itinerary. We can play the games any day after Sunday 24 February. We apologise for the inconvenience. Let me know your fresh travel arrangements so that I may book your accommodation.”
Kanyenda confirmed last week extending “a brotherly invitation” for their rivals Bullets to face the Zimbabweans during the visit.
But last Friday, Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire clarified that Kanyenda did not inform him about Caps’ visit but he just said “a foreign team.”
