he 2020/21 football season will conclude on October 16 when the last two TNM Super League matches will be played in Blantyre.
Nyasa Big Bullets, who have retained the title for the third time in a row and a record 15th time overall, will host Karonga United at Kamuzu Stadium while Mighty Wanderers will face Moyale Barracks at Mpira Stadium in Chiwembe Township.
The People’s Team will also be officially crowned as champions and Ingwina ya Karonga will accord them a guard of honour.
According to a fixture released by Super League of Malawi (Sulom), the other remaining match between Silver Strikers and Ekwendeni Hammers will be played this Saturday at Nankhaka ground in Lilongwe.
The Silver-Ekwendeni clash will be a dress rehearsal for their FDH Bank Cup final showdown which, according to Football Association of Malawi competitions and communications director Gomezgani Zakazaka, is slated for October 15 at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
With Bullets enjoying the luxury of having sealed the title with a game to spare, the battle is now on the runners-up slot between second-placed Silver and Wanderers who are third.
The Central Bankers have 55 points going into their last fixture while the Nomads have 54.
Wanderers coach Bob Mpinganjira said having failed to take the title chase to the wire after losing to Blue Eagles 1-3 on Saturday, they are now aiming at the second position.
He said: “Of course, Silver have an advantage in that they are a point ahead of us, but we will still fight in the hope that they will falter.”
Silver assistant coach McDonald Yobe also said they will not leave anything to chance.
The champions cart home K15 million while runners-up get K7.5 million.
