LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Chipiku Premier Division side based in the area of traditional authority Mlonyeni in Mchinji district Villa FC has produced replica jerseys for the supporters as one way of embracing commercialization drive through resource mobilization of the club which has just joined the league.

One of the team’s sponsors, Yobe Duwe told The Maravi Post that the move came after many supporters across Mchinji kept on asking about the Jersey, after looking at commercialization.

The team is currently struggling sometimes to pay players and to buy some materials for the sustainability of the club.

“We are a club with proper structures, we thought it wise to produce the jerseys and sell them out to our supporters and other stakeholders who may wish to assist the team which has currently won many hearts of football loving people in Mchinji and surrounding areas.

“We are selling the Jersey at MK15,000. It can also be customized when you give us order in time. We don’t want to be street beggars hence the initiative”, Duwe lamented.

According to Duwe the Jersey can be found at Mchinji Boma by asking for any Villa FC official.

Villa FC who secured Chipiku Premier division slot from Mtsiliza United are currently on position 2 in group C of the 2022 MK15.5 million with 11 points from 6 games played so far 7 points behind leaders Airborne Rangers who have 18 points from the same number of games.
