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 the whole cost of 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 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. Help us create pathways out of poverty for some of Malawi's most talented children.
