Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has revealed that seven TNM Super League teams have qualified for the second allocation of Covid relief funds.
League champions Nyasa Big Bullets, their rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, Red Lions, Mafco, Ntopwa, Karonga United and debutants Ekwendeni Hammers successfully submitted financial reports.
Following the development, the likes of Capital City giants Silver Strikers, Civil Service United, Blue Eagles, Mighty Tigers, Kamuzu Barracks, Chitipa United, Moyale Barracks, TN Stars and Mzuzu Warriors are yet to successfully process financial reports indicating how they used the first allocation.
Fam Special Taskforce on Covid Chairperson Chimango Munthali confirmed that applications from the nine clubs were either being processed or some were yet to submit consolidated financial reports on how they used the first K5 million.
“Seven teams had successfully qualified for the second chunk whereas others were being processed. As you are aware, it is a comply-and-access process.
“We are working on having thorough reconciliation for those who submitted but did not meet the requirements and encouraging those who are yet submit to do that,” he said.
Munthali said they had already deposited the final payment of K5 million to each of the successful clubs.
“We are aware teams are going through tough times and any penny in their direction will make a difference, hence our swift release of the funds a few days after we got the money from Fifa,” he said.
Tigers Chairperson Sydney Chikoti said the Kau-Kau outfit were waiting for feedback having submitted the financial report again last week.
“We believe we have done everything possible to secure funding again,” he said.
