Though only two will make it to the final, Carlsberg Cup semi-finalists have promised to dish out their best and reach the final this weekend.
The battle for the final starts tomorrow as defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets and Masters Security clash at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
On Sunday, Be Forward Wanderers will host lower league outfit Hangover FC at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre in the second semi-final.
Bullets team manager James Chilapondwa said they are not ready to let the cup go.
“As defending champions, our aim to keep this cup. We know it will be tough playing at Civo Stadium. But we are ready to defend the cup all the way to the final,” he said.
Masters, on the other hand, have opted to camp in Salima in preparation for match.
Team manager Patrick Seleman said the morale was high in camp as they target their first cup final.
Lower league outfit Hangover chairperson Frank Nachamba said after booting out Super League clubs Moyale Barracks and Blue eagles, they fear no top-flight team.
“We respect Wanderers. They are a big team. Everyone knows them. They have been there for several years. We are a small team just from the Premier Division. But we have proved that we can go all the way,” he said.
But Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira promised to halt Hangover’s fairytale run in the competition.
“There will be no mercy. We will treat them as a big team. This is the end of their end,” he said.
The sponsors, Castel Malawi Limited, yesterday handed out uniforms to the semi-finalists at Mpira Village in Chiwembe, Blantyre.
Castel brands manager (alcoholic) Twikale Chirwa said they expect another exciting weekend. n
