Meanwhile, the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu has disclosed that the association has received $20 000 [about K3.3 million] to facilitate online registration of players.
According to the Confederation of African Football (CAF), the donation is part of its development programme called Contract with Africa.
A statement from CAF says the equipment, which will be donated to all its member associations, will include six laptops, as well as medial life emergency kit containing various key items considered essential for life support and other treats faced by professional athletes.
Nyamilandu described the donation as timely, coming at a time when FAM is trying to furnish Chiwembe Technical Centre.
“It will also coincide with the computerisation programme being undertaken by Fifa to assist with player online registration.
“This will go a long way in helping towards communication as well as processing information and data of players,” he said.
The programme is in line with CAFâ€™s commitment to equip the secretariats of its member associations for improved services, while providing required support in the medical field, ensuring that footballers are looked after in the best possible and efficient way.
CAF president Issa Hayatou said: “CAF is committed to the programmes of our members and we hope the equipment will be vital in carrying out their administrative and medical responsibilities.”
Nyamilandu said the medical donation is also timely coming at a time when Malawi has embraced the â€˜Eleven for Health Project.â€™
