Mighty Wanderers FC will face Red Lions this Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations.
The Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda also said the match will help both teams tune up for the forthcoming season scheduled to kick off soon.
Kanyenda said their plans to host domestic reggae kings Black Missionaries and Skeffa Chimoto on the morning of the same day, are still on.
“We are going ahead with our Golden Jubilee celebratory activities which will come to a climax in July.
“On Saturday, we are playing Red Lions and in the morning, there will be music shows at the stadium and we are appealing to the soccer fraternity to come and support our cause.
We also hope that the friendly match will help us prepare for the forthcoming season by trying new players,” Kanyenda said.
The Nomads GS said this will mark the beginning of Golden Jubilee celebrations.
He also said the celebrations steering committee is working hard towards a successful event.
The Nomads achievements in the 50 years include producing the first player to play in a top European league when they exported â€˜Senatorâ€™ Kennedy Malunga to Belgium in the 1980s.
They were also the first team to own a clubhouse and they provided one of the most serving national team captains in Jack â€˜Africaâ€™ Chamangwana. They also became the first team to officially sell a player when they sold Yasin â€˜Titchâ€™ Osman in the 1960s.
The Nomads have also won trophies over the years and have produced many international players who have gone on to grace the foreign fields such as Joseph â€˜Shakiraâ€™ Kamwendo and late Holman Malunga who played in Denmark and Belgium respectively.
