Nyasulu said that the cup’s period was prolonged due to a shortage of referees.

“We had a lot of games to be played with few referees who were also assigned to officiate Super League games, Simso Innobuild games, Nyasa Capital Finance Cup, and Unayo Cup hence it was quite a challenge,” he added.

Head Coach for Songwe Kamu FC, Arnold Mwangomba said his team was more than ready to beat the Young Lions of Chitipa and get hold of the Unayo Cup since Karonga Stadium was their home ground.
