Super league of Malawi (SULOM) vice president Colonel Gilbert Mitawa says the four-day UEFA Assist League Development programme will help league administrators and its affiliates to understand the essentials of management and governance for modern running of professional elite football leagues.
Mitawa spoke during the opening ceremony of the workshop currently underway at Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe.
The program is aimed at building capacity for Super League clubs in the quest to professionalise the league by providing long term development plans for league football administration in the country.
Sulom’s second in command said after the training, the league administrator will follow up with its affiliates to evaluate the implementation of the areas under focus aimed at professionalising the local game.
UEFA’s Head of International Relations Eva Pasquier said clubs are backbone of football in any country and believes the training will assist the clubs to go to another level in running their affairs and operations.
Pasquier stated that after the training Sulom and club officials will be able to manage and run the league clubs on a different level in terms of technical development of the game.
