The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has started groundwork for the new season, kicking off next Saturday, by holding stakeholders meetings and ground inspections across the country.
The inspection will cover all usual venues in addition to Chiwembe Ground and Surestream Stadium which should ease the problem of lack of grounds.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda on Thursday said the inspections started on April 4 2014 ahead of the league launch at Silver Stadium. Big Bullets and Silver Strikers game will kick-start the season.
Sulom treasurer Tiya Somba Banda and Alfred Lungu are leading the team inspecting venues for the Southern Region. The team includes a referee.
The two officials will then host a stakeholders meeting on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium. Silver Stadium and Mzuzu Stadium will also host such meetings on the same day.
The Southern Region Referees Appointment Committee chairperson Charles Kafatia recently complained about poor measurements of some venues in the region and demanded that such inspections include a referee.
Charles Manyungwa and Aggrey Khonje are taking charge of Central Region inspection whereas Evance Mwase will oversee that of the North.
In the rest of the regions, stakeholders meeting will also take place on Tuesday to, among others, brief teams on amendments to Laws of the Game.
The meetings will also discuss gate ticketing and security and outsourcing of gate management.
