Malawi pulls out of 2018 CHAN and 2019 Nations Cup
Malawi has announced that it is pulling out of the 2019 African Cup of Nations and the 2018 CHAN. The reasons cited for these are financial constraints and the non-availability of a national team coach.
In a statement, the Football Association of Malawi stated that the Malawi government had refused the FA permission to hire an expatriate coach.
“Having considered all the available options, in accordance with required notices for withdrawal, it was further resolved that the Malawi National Senior Football team be withdrawn from CHAN Competition by March 31, and from AFCON by April 30, 2017, due to lack of funding.”
