Be Forward Wanderers will face Silver Strikers while Nyasa Big Bullets date Kamuzu Barracks in the semi-finals of the Chifundo Charity Shield on April 7 at Bingu National Stadium (BNS).
According to the draw, the winners will meet in the finals while the losers will fight for the third place on April 8.
FAM general secretary Alfred Gunda said the decision to shift the Charity Shield from this weekend to next week was made to give fans a chance to watch Malawi Under-20 national team game against Botswana on March 31 in the Africa Cup of Nations Under-20 qualifiers.
Apart from that, Gunda said the association wanted to plan properly for the event to to meet its objectives of generating money for the needy.
“We thank clubs for waiving their requirements to play the match and owners of BNS for accepting our request to reduce their gate collection share.”
FAM commercial and marketing director Limbani Matola said they expect to raise K10 million from gate collections after meeting overhead costs with tickets going at K1 500 advance and K2 000 at the door.
He appealed to fans to support the initiative by patronising the two-day event.
Ekwendeni School for the Blind will be the beneficiary for this year’s bonanza.
Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao said they would take the tournament seriously besides helping towards the needy.
He also said the shifting of the charity bonanza had worked to their advantage as they would have time to prepare. n
