Malawi Pulls Out of AFCON And CHAN Over Lack of Funds

In a move the government criticised as “hasty”, Malawi has pulled out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2018 African Nations Championship due to lack of funds.

The Football Association of Malawi said in a statement on Sunday that “having considered all available options” it was withdrawing “due to lack of funding”.

Alfred Gunda, the head of FAM, said that the withdrawal “cannot be avoided looking at the current level of desperation in the national team in terms of funding and overall support”.

FAM has been solely sponsored by the government after local companies dropped their support as the national economy struggles.
