Sulom reverts to physical AGM

TNM Super League 2020

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary, Williams Banda has said they are planning to hold a physical Annual General Meeting (AGM) ahead of the kick-off of the TNM Super League season.

The league organisers recently announced that they would hold a video conference in the wake of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) where gatherings of more than 100 people were banned.

Normally, an AGM is conducted before the kick-off of the season.

In an interview with MIJ FM radio in Thursday, Banda said it is important that they hold the meeting especially after Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has committed to start the season in August pending approval from government and other stakeholders being consulted.

“Right now we are planning on the normal AGM we have because we discovered there are some things that cannot be discussed through the video. We also considered the issue of internet access where we realised that some teams would have problems to have internet access due to geographical locations. That would be an option if the physical meeting fails to materialize because we are still discussion about it,” he said.

At the AGM, all the 16 teams in the league discuss different issues from previous season and map the way forward.

This year, the season was scheduled to start on March 21 before it was postponed after president Peter Mutharika instituted a ban on gatherings of more than 100 people.
