FDH Bank Plc has renewed its partnership with Football Association of Malawi (FAM) by doubling the sponsorship amount from K60 million to K120 million translating to K360 million for the next 3 years (2021 – 2024).

FDH Bank Plc has been sponsoring the National Soccer Team since partnering with FAM in August 2016.

Speaking during the contract renewal at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre, FDH Bank Plc Deputy Managing Director George Chitera said that as a bank, they have seen fruits of the initial investment over the years including the performance of the team at Cosafa tournament in South Africa and the scorching of the Zebras of Botswana to qualify for World Cup group stage in 2018.

“Recently, this year, we saw more fruits as the Flames qualified for AFCON 2022. As a brand that believes in growth, we are proud of the progress and the growth that the Flames are attaining and how the country at large is embracing the Flames and the FDH Bank Cup. We are celebrating this progress and the victories today by unveiling a new sponsorship deal.

“This sponsorship is separate from that of the FDH Bank Cup that has an annual sponsorship of K90 Million which translates to K270 million in 3 years. Thus, for the next 3 years FDH Bank Plc is pumping more than K630 million for FAM and the Flames,” said Chitera.

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu expressed gratitude at the exponential response of FDH Bank plc of the 100% sponsorship contract renewal.

“This clearly demonstrates that FDH Bank plc is a true friend of Malawi football,” said Nyamilandu.
