TNM Super League action returns this Saturday and Sunday after a two-week break to pave the way for the May 21 Tripartite Elections.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) secretariat yesterday released five fixtures to be played this weekend.
On Saturday, Savenda Chitipa United host Masters Security at Karonga Stadium while Be Forward Wanderers host Dwangwa United at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The action will continue on Sunday with a capital city derby as Silver Strikers host Civil Sporting at Silver Stadium.
Masters Security will wrap up their trip to the Northern Region with a fixture against Karonga United at Karonga Stadium while Dwangwa United’s last assignment in the Southern Region will be against Ntopwa FC at Kamuzu Stadium.
Meanwhile, Sulom general secretary Williams Banda said the two-week break will not affect the calendar.
“We planned ahead for this. There is a one-week cushion which we had for the Tripartite Elections,” he said.
However, Banda said it is the Cosafa Cup currently in Durban, South Africa, that will affect the calendar.
Initially, the Cosafa Cup was supposed to be held in early May, but was shifted due to Zimbabwe’s decision to pull out from hosting the tournament.
“What we planned has not been implemented. Mostly, first round has always been like that. There are always lots of activities that we usually encounter. Our plea is that stakeholders should appreciate the events which are happening to avoid complaining when some teams play more games than others that were idle due to Malawi national team engagements,” he said.
Blue Eagles lead the table with 11 points from six games while Bullets are second with 10 points from four games. Wanderers are on position eight with seven points from four games
