The launch of the Central Region Beach Soccer League will be held on Saturday at Sunbird Livingstonia in Salima.
Central Region Beach Soccer Committee (CRBSC) general secretary Ali Mwachande also said the league’s sponsors Impakt Events, will also be unveiled at the launch.
Impakt Events, owned by music icon and Member of Parliament (MP) Luscious Banda, have pumped in K500,000.
Earlier in the year, Impakt Events Banda helped the league to raise K500 000 through a music show that took place at the M1 Centre Point, bringing the total to K1 million.
Mwachande said in appreciation to Impakt Events’ gesture, the league will now be called Sand Festival Central Region Beach Soccer League.
“They have made a huge contribution towards the running of the league. It is only befitting that we change the name to honour the sponsors, ” he said.
On his part, Banda said he is looking forward to a long-term partnership.
“Will be monitoring how the league will be managed and come with something big next year if all goes well,” said the local music icon.
Beach Soccer Malawi (BSM) general secretary David Sado has since applauded Banda for coming to the rescue of the sport in the Central Region.
He also appealed to companies and individuals to finance the southern and northern leagues to promote the growth of the sport in the country.
