Our players share their thoughts on Chigoli.

Sponsor a Player

Get involved from wherever you are in the world and support one of our players via sponsorship. Each individual player sponsorship lasts 12 months and covers a contribution towards their involvement in the Academy. The option to fund their education is also available, should you wish to do so. Be a part of changing the game for our talented players.

Sponsors receive a letter of thanks or video from the player, your name on our 'Wall of Fame', are named as a players sponsor on our 'Player Gallery' below, as well as a receiving a certificate of sponsorship.

Together we can create pathways out of poverty for some of Malawi's most talented children.
