Nine Member Associations affiliated to Football Association of Malawi have received a donation of donated top of range Hp Laptops from the country’s FA.
The donation is one way of promoting use of technology in the management of the game, FAM Second Vice President, Othniel Hara said this when handing over the donation to the Associations representatives.
Hara who is also chairperson for the Finance and Administration Committee said: “The game has evolved a lot and there is need to embrace use of technology at all levels.
“The use of computers is part of our daily lives nowadays. As football we also need to move in the same direction and use technology to manage the game.
We noted that the Member Associations had challenges with equipment and as a starting point we thought of buying them laptops. We believe this will help to ease their record manamgent”.
Northern Region Football Association chairperson Lameck Khonje thanked FAM for the gesture saying they were facing problem managing data in the absence of computers.
“Football is all about data and statistics. But we were having problems managing data as we were mostly doing it manually. This is a very welcome development as will be able to timely produce and manage our records,” said Khonje.
The laptops are valued at K790,000.00 each translating to K7.1 million.
