Carlsberg Malawi Senior Brands Manager for non-alcoholics Titha Mbilizi said while in South Africa the team would compete in six-nations’ knockout tournament.


Following the Copa Coca-Cola held in Balaka Carlsberg Malawi sponsors of Copa Coca-Cola helped by MASSA selected a team of 15 players.

“These players were selected from different divisions based on skills and sponsorship displayed during the tournament and these lucky players will be travelling to South Africa from 7 September to 12.”

Mbilizi said the camp was important because it would give them a platform to meet players from other countries.

“This will give them an opportunity to meet players of their age from other countries where they will share ideas and the dream which at the end of the day pursue other career or soccer is hobby,” she said.

Malawi will face other teams from Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zambia and hosts Zimbabwe.

They will start with a training camp which will include basic training.

In the past years the regional camps stops taking place as the organizers were concentrating on two outstanding players from each country visiting overseas countries such as Germany.
