Within the struggle of balancing academics and sporting activities, the MUBAS football team has managed to qualify for the National Draw of the FDH Bank Cup and also the Quarter final stage of the Powerstart Top 8 competition.

According to the Sports Director Peace Nkhata, the first round of the tournament comprised of 20 teams.

“Our first match, we played against Wizards FC  which we beat them 1-0. This made us qualify for the next round which had 10 teams. Our next match was against Zomba Air Base which we drew 1 all and later beat them through post-match penalty shootouts by 5 goals to 4. That is when we qualified for the national phase,” said Nkhata.

When it comes to the Powerstart Top 8 tournament, they have reached the quarter final stage after  beating FOMO FC from Mulanje 2-1.

Nkhata explained that the team is doing well because their goal is to achieve more and win trophies since there are more players in the squad hence more competition among the players which is helping them to put in extra effort to improve individual performance.

The University Sports Administrator, Chifundo Tenthani hailed the boys on the brilliant performance though they have to balance education and sporting schedule which he says is not easy at all.

“I am very proud of the team and I am hopeful that they will go all the way and win the competitions. We are happy they are putting the name of the University on the map through sports. I also like to thank Management for the support that they give to the team,” said Tenthani.

Nkhata also  thanks Management for the support in various ways and also fellow students who take time to come and cheer them during their matches.

Their next match is against Blantyre City on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Mpira stadium in Chiwembe.
