Over 52 players from various teams in the domestic league in the country and one foreign based player have changed teams during the mid-season transfer window market.
Transfer market opened on July 30, 2018 during the TNM Super League mid-season break, saw 52 major transactions and signing of two players from Reserve or Youth side.
In an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Wednesday in Blantyre, Super League of Malawi (SULOM) General Secretary Williams Banda said the teams used the newly introduced electronic transfer system (e-transfer system) to transact.
“Every transaction in the just ended mid-season transfer market used the Domestic Transfer Matching System which is a system of transaction that takes place online, but the only challenge we had is the change of officer user,” he pointed out.
