    Wow K26 million that was great. But sorry to my Bullets and Wanderers fans for you may only have one such derby to watch before Kamuzu stadium is either demolished or undergoes major renovations and expansion, so all of your games will be played in Lilongwe. Oh how I wish Bingu was alive. If it will take almost 4 years for a well funded Chinese stadium to be completed it will surely take 10 or so years for a Malawi govt funded stadium to be completed in Blantyre. So during those 10 years our Lilongwe counterparts will be enjoying these mouth-watering Blantyre derbies. I’ll not blame Bullets and Nomads if they start arrangements for relocating to Lilongwe. Didn’t I hear FISD Wizards is also about to relocate to Lilongwe? Cry my beloved Blantyre City!

    From the look of things Ground Levy seems to be a percentage of some sort. If this is the case then I totally disagree with the format. I bet if the charge was fixed, it wouldn’t have been as high as 6million, therefore, I ask that the charge should be fixed that way Big Teams stand to benefit from their sweat.

  13. Child labour. Those young ball boys were on wages as well? Shaaaaa

  14. Sulom, FAM what role do you play in football? is it bcoz u release fixtures? that job can be done by teachers bcz they knw how to formulate a timetable. apolisi mumawapatsa ndalama zochuluka, amalowesa anthu kumenekuja and were pocketing something. that game wud have collected alot of money but purse keepers are thieves…pali zambiri zomwe nnaziona..kumalawi mpira suzatukuka. nyamilandu pomakakamira ka chi 4 akudziwa muli kudya mumpira….they hv a syndicate..

  15. Bon Kapinda says:

    26, 817, 705? How do you reconcile the seven hundred and five kwacha at the end when the minimum fee was one thousand kwacha? We’re there any special discounts that some were even paying their entry in hundreds?

  16. Chandiona says:

    Thou shall not steal! Ground levy 5.6 million? Fam/Sulom combined…4.4 million (Ground levy plus Fam/Sulom equals 10 million out of 26 million.) Abale, this is worse than slavery….daylight robbery! You football Administrators are thieves of the highest order. This sucks!

  17. Chikopa says:

    Sulom, fam, sport council, groung levy ndiye pasala chani? Ground levy kulandila yofanana ndi ma team shaaaaa

  18. Banda says:

    Kudyera ma team shame on you sulom and Fam. Something must be done the sharing format is not benefiting teams and players who sweat on the pitch. You suck
