TNM Super League clubs have hailed Super League of Malawi (Sulom) for releasing second round fixtures in full other than in piecemeal.
Sulom released the second round fixtures on Sunday which indicate that the league will end on October 8.
The clubs say releasing the fixtures in advance helps them to plan smoothly both administratively and technically.
Mighty Wanderers chairperson Chancy Gondwe said: “Unlike the first round, in which fixtures were released in piecemeal, we are happy that the fixtures have been released as a package. That is the way to go as it will help the clubs in terms of planning.
“However, we hope there will be no interruptions and that the fixture will be adhered to.”
Nyasa Big Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said: “The bit by bit release of fixtures affects clubs in terms of planning..
“Following the fixture as released, is a good thing to do. I know there will be times along the way when cup games and Flames engagements will have some bearing on the fixture, but this is a welcome development.”
On his part, Civil Service (Civo) United general secretary Ronald Chiwaula said: “It is such a good development. It will greatly assist in terms of planning and it will balance up the completion time and I have in mind what happened in the first round whereby some teams wound up their fixtures when others still had two to three matches left.
“As a result, some teams will rest for two weeks while others will not rest at all.”
According to the fixture, the most sought-after fixture on the domestic scene, which features Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers, is slated for July 3 with the Lilongwe derby between Silver Strikers and Civo taking place the following day.
