Pomp and fanfare have characterized the launch of the K1.5 million Andiamo football league on Saturday in Balaka. Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust (AYCT) in conjunction with Association of Lawyers from Bergamo in Italy have sponsored the league.
Prior to the actual match, that will involve last year’s champions Chilobwe FC and runners-up Manjawira Admarc, several other activities such as athletics have been held, where children competed in the 30 metres run before boys and girls in the 100 metres in their respective categories.
Being held in memory of Sergio Frizzoni, a friend to Peppino who is the president of Association of Lawyers in Bergamo, the league has attracted 74 teams from across the district and currently played in the eight zones.
