FAM AGM adopts first ever Strategic plan

The 2024 FAM Annual General Meeting on Saturday adopted the association’s first strategic plan that will guide the FA in its broader objective of transforming Malawi football for the next ten years.

Delegates at the meeting, which took place at Sunbird Nkopola in Mangochi, endorsed the document touted as a game changer in the aggressive pursuit of football transformation in the country.

The plan aims at harmoniously guiding the FA and all its affiliates in their approach to achieving FAM’s strategic objectives.

FAM President Fleetwood Haiya in his opening remarks asked the delegates from the nine Member Associations (MAs) to embrace the strategy as it would act as a scientific and measurable road map to achieve sustainable growth of Malawi football.

The key elements in the blueprint include strengthening of governance, legal, football growth and infrastructure.

The meeting also approved FAM Executive proposals to wave the 5 percent of gate revenue in League games, admit Eastern Region as a Member Association and establish a National Football Tribunal as an independent judicial committee to hear and pass decisions on football related disputes and regulatory applications.

“The revenues for the clubs playing in the league in Malawi have been inadequate for the teams to meaningfully support and the affairs of the clubs. It is against this background that as part of the transforming the game and ensuring improved revenue for the clubs we decided to waive a five percent.

“Worth notifying is that engagement with Malawi National Council of Sports to consider sending a percentage from their share is ongoing and is aimed to ensure increased revenues towards clubs,” said Haiya.

On the Easter Region being commissioned as FAM’s 10th member Association Haiya said: “This new MA will come to address a gap that was there where districts such as Zomba, Machinga, Mangochi and Balaka were feeling disenfranchised in the administration of football at regional level.

“This development means that the districts in the Eastern Region will now have a fully dedicated committee that will be key in developing the game in the districts under their jurisdiction. Such a move will enhance the visibility of talent in the area but also will empower committees in the region to focus more and commit to our strategic objective of Transforming the Game.”
