TNM League sponsorship up to K0.5 billion

Football Association of Malawi President Fleetwood Haiya has hailed TNM Plc for increasing the Super League sponsorship by 350 per cent from K150 million to K500 million.

Speaking at the sponsorship unveiling ceremony in Blantyre on Wednesday afternoon, Haiya said FAM is excited to see the relationship between Sulom and TNM growing despite changes in the leadership of the two institutions.

“When there are changes in the offices like in this case Sulom having a new president and TNM a new CEO sometimes the chances of partnership continuing are not there. Let me applaud Sulom and TNm for ensuring that this partnership is continuing.

“During my campaign for the FAM presidency in December 2023, I made a solemn promise to see to it that our elite league sponsorship should be at the minimum of half a billion Kwacha. Not many believed that this would be possible.

“Today let us all celebrate the new TNM Super League sponsorship of K500 million. This is a massive step up and a huge steppingstone in our quest to Transform the Game in Malawi. Many thanks to TNM (Telekom Networks Malawi) for their unwavering support and investment in Malawi football. Indeed, you are Always With us,” he said.

From the package, K176 million will go towards teams’ prizes with the winner carting home a cool K100 million; K10 million to individual awards and K160 million towards teams’ subventions with each team pocketing K10 million.

TNM has also set aside K50 million for grassroots football a development Haiya says will play a key role in fulfilling the FAM’s key strategic pillar on youth football development.

The sponsors’ Chief Executive Officer, Michel Hebert says the development demonstrates the company’s love for Malawi football after sponsoring the league for the past 17 years.

Sulom President Col Gilbert Mitawa was is overwhelmed by the new sponsorship and said: ” TNM has not only tripled the sponsorship which we asked but have also added some money on top of what we had requested. This sponsorship will help us revive, reform and rebrand Malawi’s football,” he said.

He then urged Malawian to support TNM products and services as a token of appreciation for the sponsorship.
