Bullets FC’s financial woes has taken another twist as they need at least K20 million to host AL Hilal of Khartoum of Sudan including accommodating them at the four-star Protea Hotel Ryalls in the return led of CAF match scheduled for April 4.
The situation has been caused by the arrangement that Bullets made with Al Hilal in Khartoum to foot each other’s bills as it was the case with Fomboni in Club De Mheil of Comoros Islands.
Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote said the problem with the Al Hilal arrangement is that it was sealed in black and white unlike the Fomboni which was a verbal deal.
“We suggested to our counterparts to consider accommodating us in a standard hotel on the understanding the we will do the same here,” Fote said.
“But we learnt that they had booked us at a five-star hotel as per CAF requirements and we were made to sign MOU.”
Ryalls costs $153 about K68,850 translating to K1.37 million per day and a squad of 30 they need K20 rooms.
Apart from K20 million, Bullets also should cough K13 million return air tickets and K10 million outstanding to other service providers Dorvic Hotel, Gold Card Executive Lodge and players outstanding allowances.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
