The Flames’ last 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Swaziland has been shifted to Sunday September 4 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Initially, the game was earlier scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 3.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) general secretary Suzgo Nyirenda confirmed the development.
“CAF [Confederation of African Football] has shifted the match because they want it to be played on the same day with the other Group L last match between Guinea and Zimbabwe,” he said.
“The rules that last matches will be played on same day same time.”
He said CAF wanted the match to kick off at 4:30pm just like the Guinea versus Zimbabwe match, “but we pleaded to start earlier because Kamuzu Stadium has no floodlights.
Flames anchor Group L with two points from five games.
Zimbabwe are topping the group with 11 points while Swaziland are second with eight points. Guinea are on third position with five points.
