The Football Association of Malawi held a successful Extra- Ordinary General Meeting at the Chatonda Lodge in Chintcheche, Nkhatabay on Saturday.
The delegates discussed all agenda items that were shelved during the Elective AGM held on 14th December 2019 in Mangochi.
Among others, the Assembly approved the FAM’s 2020 detailed budget as well as the Financial Statements of the year ending June 2019.
The Delegates also endorsed the names of the members of FAM Judicial bodies as proposed by the FAM Executive Committee.
The bodies include the Disciplinary, Appeals, Ethics, Club Licensing First Instance, Club Licensing Appeals and Ethics Committees.
The main project in the 2020 budget is the establishment of the FAM full time academy at the Luwinga technical Centre in Mzuzu.
FAM President Walter Nyamilandu hailed the delegates for sober discussions at the meeting which was held exactly 60 days after the tense elective AGM.
“I am pleased and impressed by the maturity that we have shown today considering where we are coming from.
“It is encouraging to see that we have left all the elections related differences behind and today meaningfully discussed important issues to develop our football. Let us maintain this spirit,” said Nyamilandu
He added: “We have a lot of projects ahead of us and the Football Academy at the Luwinga Centre is the main priority.
But we also have a lot of national teams’ activities, local competitions as well as developmental and capacity building. We have work to do and raising the bar starts now,”
