Spirits were high as Malawians from across South Africa cheered on their favourite players at the finals of the 2018 Malawian Flames Tournament. Players and attendees were especially celebratory as the finals fell on Malawian Independence Day.
This year’s tournament, held in partnership with The Malawian Mission, was the biggest yet. Football (Malawi Flames) and Netball (Queens) teams competed in regional play-offs held in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The tournament culminated in the finals, held on 8th July in Johannesburg.
