Dwangwa United have become the second team to earn TNM Super League promotion with two games to spare despite losing 0-2 to Kasungu Medicals last weekend.
The Chipiku Central Region Football Association (CRFA) Premier League side have achieved the feat courtesy of Support Battalion’s 3-3 draw with Namitete Young Rangers.
Dwangwa have 79 points, seven ahead of second-placed Battalion. Each side remains with two games to wind up their fixtures.
Dwangwa now joins Max Bullets, who beat Prison United 1-0 on Saturday to win the Southerm Region Football Association (SRFA) Premier League in the TNM Super League.
In the Simama Northern Region Football Association (CRFA) League, Chilumba Barracks—who have 80 points— need just a point from their remaining matches to earn Super League promotion.
The soldiers’ chances of earning the promotion emanated from their rivals Karonga United’s failure to collect maximum points last weekend when they registered a one-all draw with OP Stars.
The result means that Karonga, who have 75 points from 31 games, can only go as far as 81 points while Chilumba will be declared champions if they manage at least a draw in their remaining three matches.
Chilumba team manager Kazizwa Banda said: “We are now done with our campaign. It will not be possible to miss a single point in our three remaining games.” n
