Malawi’s pioneer mobile technology provider would like to use the TNM 2020 Super League season as a gateway to unleashing endless possibilities and potentials, Acting Chief Executive Officer Arnold M’bwana says.
Under the theme NdiZotheka or “It is possible”, The 2020 Super League season finally kicks off this coming, ending a seven month long suspension on all football activities in March this year due to the threat of Covid-19.
TNM Plc Acting Chief Executive Officer, Arnold M’bwana says as the theme entails, the 2020/21 TNM Super League season creates a platform for the return of life to normalcy in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and opens up to a pool of life-changing possibilities.
M’bwana said: “We realize that football touches many lives, and in different ways. In the 2020 season, we are looking at the league providing a platform for engaging people socially and economically.
“For example, those in the media can plug into the league for content advertising opportunities, those in retail trade can take advantage of actual games to bring their products closer to fans, and in the social sector, an opportunity will be provided to raise awareness on national causes such as is the case this year whereby we would like to use the opening game and subsequent ones as a medium to spread knowledge on how to stay safe in the wake of the global Coronavirus pandemic.”
Furthermore, the Acting CEO said the 2020 season will strive to enable football stakeholders achieve great things in their daily endeavors, hence the theme NdiZotheka.
He then welcomed three newly promoted teams, Red Lions, MAFCO and Ekwendeni Hammers to the elite league:
“The brand welcomes them to the elite club. It can really get tough as Red Lions and MAFCO can attest to this but with proper planning survival is possible,” M’bwana said.
The 2020 season marks the 14th year of TNM’s long-term sponsorship of the league with 2019 champions Nyasa Big Bullets hosting Blue Eagles in the official opening match of their title defence at the Kamuzu Stadium.
TNM plc has since called on all Super League stakeholders and Malawians to adhere to health guidelines and necessary protocols during the matches to prevent further the spread of the pandemic.
On business aspect, TNM Plc Acting Chief Executive Officer says the 2020 Super League season will provide a pedestal on which TNM plc seeks to avail to its customers the greatest affordability and connectivity opportunities in voice and digital services.
Customers should be able to realize their social, business and professional needs using TNM’s services based on their affordability depths, he said.
“Our 4G network offers customers the option of plugging into the game to watch highlights, and live games through streaming.”
