Malawi withdraw from 2019 AFCON, 2018 CHAN


Malawi have pulled out of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) citing financial constraints and non-availability of a national team coach.
The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) released a statement after the government refused the FA permission to hire an expatriate coach.

The FA had proposed the hiring of a foreign coach on a 50-50 cost sharing agreement with government.

After months of consultation, the government through the Ministry of Sport, rejected FAM’s proposal on financial grounds.

A meeting of the FAM executive committee then agreed that Malawi should withdraw from the two continental competitions.
