TEAMS PROTEST OVER CARLSBERG CUP SEMI-FINAL VENUES

1.Reference is here-by made to
your unfounded and
disappointing choice of venue
for the Carlsberg Cup semi-
finals involving ourselves (Moyale
FC) and Be Forward
Wanderers FC.
2.We believe every competition in
football is based on
principles of fairness,
sportsmanship and
entertainment apart
from marketing policy of the
Sponsors that be. We have come
to realise it has been your
intention throughout this
Competition to deliberately
frustrate Moyale FC by scheduling
all our games away from both
our home ground and our fans/
supporters who you are well
aware that they are in Mzuzu.
This is unfair considering that
the other Three (3) Semi-
finalists have been allowed to
play at home infront of their
Supporters/fans at least once
since the competition started.
3.You are therefore reminded
that when a team is travelling it
incurs unwelcome costs that
encompass fuel, wear and tears,
food, accommodation,
allowances and other unforeseen
expenses. If a team travels
always to participate in a
Competition, which has never
happened anywhere in the
World, (team playing away
always and wins a Competition)
it
will in any case use more
resources than the ultimate prize
money of the Competition, except
when it is for charity.
Therefore by forcing Moyale
Barracks FC to play away from
home, you are, in effect,
subjecting the team to Zero
return on
resources even if it eventually
wins the Competition.
4.We would like to believe that it
is important for Carlsberg
Malawi, Sponsors of the
Competition, to market their
products
across the Country by ensuring
that Northern Region and
particularly Mzuzu customers get
a glimpse of at least one
quarterfinal- onward game of
this years competition, and also
to market their newly Oxygen
refurbished plant in Mzuzu using
such an opportunity. However
with the choice of your venues,
it appears more of a mockery to
Northern Region Customers
and in effect jeopardises the very
purpose on why Carlsberg
Malawi is continuing to Sponsor
the Competition.
5.In conclusion we want to
categorically state that the Venue
be changed from Civo to Mzuzu
Stadium inorder to enable our
fans/Supporters and Carlsberg
Malawi Customers in the
Northern Region to watch their
team. We would like to
observe that this years
competition has been a classic
example of poor management, a
supposed reflection of the
current FAM administration
which fails to see obvious
unwelcome politics in football,
and that it would not want to
bring in the controversy of
Moyale FC failing to pitch up at
the
Venue because of your apparent
unfairness, unsportmanship
and shear incompetence as
regards to basic rules of the
game
of football. Of course as per your
mediocre explanation, Civo
Stadium is a neutral venue for
Moyale FC and Be Forward
Wanderers FC. What of Big Bullets
FC playing Silver Strikers
FC at Kamuzu Stadium? Is this a
neutral venue?
6.Grateful.
