The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has announced commencement of player registration for the forthcoming season scheduled to start on April 23.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda on Sunday stressed that the league will be strict on playersâ€™ contracts and medical certificates.
â€œWe have started the process of player registration and clubs that have not yet collected the registration forms are advised to do so,â€ said Banda.
He added: â€œWe also want to state that players are supposed to be certified by medical doctors before they can be registered.â€
Commenting on contracts, the Sulom GS said it will be compulsory that teams should have contracts with all their players.
â€œThis will help all the stakeholders to know the status of the players and there will be no confusion when a player intends to move from one club to another as he will be bound by the contract,â€ he said.
Banda also said the league expects the clubs and players to follow transfer procedures.
â€œIf there is a player who wants to join another team, he should inform his current team on his intention to move,â€ Banda advised.
The Sulom GS said so far the league has not processed any player transfer.
Escom United FC, who transfer-listed about 10 key players last month, also said no club has approached them for transactions involving any of their players.
â€œThe transfer market seems to be quiet. Maybe as we head towards kick-off, there will be a lot of activity, but as of now, we have not been approached officially by any club,â€ said Escomâ€™s chairperson Fanuel Nkhono.
Among the players that were transfer-listed by Escom were Maupo Msowoya, Chimango Kaira, Noel Mkandawire, Ndaziona Chatsalira, Heston Munthali, Young Chimodzi Jnr, James Chilapondwa and Chipiliro Jose.
