As relegation battles in the 2015 TNM Super League get tougher this weekend, Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary Williams Banda has warned clubs against match-fixing, saying culprits will be severely punished.
“We got wind that some teams have planned on fixing their matches so as to avoid relegation or earn some cash. However, let them be warned that they will be severely punished, including getting arrested, if found indulging in such filthy acts during their next assignments,” said Banda.
“We want the season to end well and, as such, we have put our people on the ground to root out the bad apples. In short, we are watching them with keen interest.”
A total of 27 games are remaining and, according to Banda, the 2015 season will wind up on December 27 with two matches.
Azam Tigers and Airborne Rangers clash at Kamuzu Stadium while Civo United and champions Big Bullets will wind up the season at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe. n
