The poularity of Chess in Malawi has seen interest growing among sponsors. Malawi Sun Hotel is the latest to join the sponsors list after its announcement that they will sponsor the playing venue and snacks to players and officials during the finals of the Lab Enterprise tournament slated for 25th and 26th September 2010. Announcing the news in an Email, the Southern Region Chess League Chairperson, Susan Namangale said Malawi Sun Hotel will provide free playing Hall and shall provide tea and snacks during break. The finals has attracted players from Mzuzu and Lilongwe. Joseph Mwale should be a favourite to retain the cup after having failed to qualify for the 2010 Olympiad. The only major obstacle should be the National Champion Gerrard Mphungu who failed to travel to Khanty-Mansiysk after the College administration refused to release him. He is likely to be in devastating mood to prove his worth unless he fails to shrag his misery of having failed to appear for his first international game. Chess Association of Malawi has since sent an appreciation message to the new sponsors through SCL and hope that the relationship will grow stronger with time.
