Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has said its disciplinary committee will meet on Monday to hear Presidential Cup complaints lodged by Mighty Wanderers and Silver Strikers against Bvumbwe Research and Complex Madrid respectively.
The Nomads and the Bankers were booted out of the tournament last weekend by 2-1 margins.
However, the Nomads claim that Bvumbwe breached an agreement not to feature three players, namely Ndaziona Mamu, McLean Salamu and Ibrahim Sadiki who were loaned to them [Bvumbwe].
On the other hand, Silver also claim that Complex Madrid featured three players that were ineligible having played for different teams at district level in the same competition.
FAM competitions manager Casper Jangale on Thursday confirmed that the cases will be heard on Monday.
“Initially, the cases were supposed to be heard today [Thursday], but some of the members of the disciplinary committee are tied up,” said Jangale.
He also said the cases will not affect the fixtures of the competition.
“There is only one Presidential Cup game this Saturday between Mzuni and Kasungu Medicals. The match will kick off at 12.30pm at Mzuzu Stadium,” said Jangale.
Nomads general secretary and legal adviser David Kanyenda said: “Part of the conditions for loaning the players to Bvumbwe was that they should not feature them against us in a competitive game.
“In fact, we were reluctant to play. We only took to the pitch after being advised by the match assessor [Charles Kafatia] to play under protest which we did. It is not something strange, it happens elsewhere.”
On the other hand, Silver claim that Complex Madrid featured Aiko Maluwa, Lumbani Phiri and Stevie Paundi that were all ineligible.
