We shall give you [Castel Malawi] a platform to promote your products. We want to challenge you that the investment you are putting in football will yield positive results.

“Your gesture this evening underscores your commitment to leave a lasting impression on your contribution to the game of football and commitment to be part of the Transforming Malawi football agenda,” said Haiya.
