Mighty Be Forward Wanderers were Sunday officially crowned the 2017 TNM Super League Champions after sharing the spoils with ninth-placed Red Lions at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.

It was a colorful match, with the military side granting a guard of honor to the champions as they entered the pitch for kick off.

Officials of the Japanese car dealer, Be Forward, sponsors of Be Forward Wanderers, threw balls to the Nomads’ supporters’ stands before kick off in celebration of winning the title.

Red Lions led in the dying minute of the first half through Kumbukani Mwambene’s goal, but Mike Kaziputa diverted into the Reds’ goal a free kick by Joseph Kamwendo to level the score sheet, three minutes after break.

The soldiers’ attack suffered a heavy blow as Mwambene had to take an early shower following a hard tackle on Kaziputa. It ended 1-1 after regulation time.

Wanderers coach Yasin Osman hailed his charges for grabbing the league after an eleven year drought, saying their eyes are now on the CAF tournament.

Wanderers won the championship last Saturday after collecting three decisive points by beating Masters Security 4-1 at Balaka Stadium.

They have been finished with 69 points, seconded by their Blantyre city rivals Nyasa Big Bullets with a two point difference. Silver Striker are third with 61 points.

Wizards FC, Blantyre United and Chitipa United have been relegated from the top flight league.

New comers so far are Karonga United from the Northern Region Football League and Nchalo United from the Southern Region  Football League.
