Surestream Academy has asked FAM and Sulom to officially put forward their proposal to use Surestream Stadium for Super League and other competitive games.
The development follows a meeting which the two football bodies had with Surestream Academy management in Blantyre on Tuesday morning.
Surestream Academy technical director Peter Mponda and Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu confirmed the meeting and described it as fruitful.
“We had a fruitful meeting with FAM and Sulom this morning and we made our position clear that we are not restraining them from using the facility, but rather, we just want to agree on certain aspects such as safety of the stadium and risk factors.
“The other thing was that both FAM and Sulom have not yet submitted an official proposal on the use of the facility and we agreed that they should do that and we’ll revert to them within the next seven days,” said Mponda.
He also said in view of the development, the stadium will not host Sunday’s TNM Super League game between Azam Tigers and Mponela United.
On his part, Nyamilandu said: “We have been asked to submit a proposal on how the matches will be organised because Surestream had no knowledge of their facility hosting Super League games at all.
“To that effect, we [FAM and Sulom] will be submitting a proposal that will include guaranteeing the safety of the stadium and how we’ll address risk factors,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mponda has said Surestream Academy will today host Under-17 and Under-14 junior tournaments that will involve three teams in each category.
Surestream Academy, Machinga Young Soccer and Karibu Academy will take part in the tournaments which will be played on league basis
According to Mponda, the games are slated to kick off this morning from 9am.
