The Central Region Football Association (CRFA) has suspended the final round of the Chipiku Stores Premier League games to resolve a dispute between Dedza Dynamos and Wimbe United over an abandoned match.
Winners of the league will earn promotion into the TNM Super League.
Initially, the league had ordered a replay, but Dedza Dynamos refused and they have since sought Football Association of Malawi’s (FAM) intervention.
The league’s general secretary Bernard Chiwiruwiru Harawa confirmed the decision in an interview yesterday.
He said: “We have informed all the six about the suspension of the games until further notice. We urge all teams and all stakeholders to remain calm as we are trying sort out the matter.”
The league has since called
for an emergency meeting on Friday where Dedza Dynamos and Wimbe United
officials have been summoned in a bid to resolve the stand-off.
“We have asked both teams to bring a maximum of three officials each,” said Harawa.
Dedza Dynamos confirmed receiving the invitation.
The club’s general secretary Mabvuto Mugode said: “We will attend the meeting. We wrote FAM to arbitrate on the matter. We feel this is a good platform to resolve the issue.”
FAM general secretary Alfred Gunda said they are aware of the issue.
“But as of now the matter is under the jurisdiction of CRFA. We will wait for what will transpire,” he said.
Dedza Dynamos are leading the table with 19 points, Extreme FC are second with 18 points, and Silver Strikers Reserves are third with 13 points.
But Dedza have a game in hand, the disputed fixture against Wimbe
