As one tactic of expanding their revenue base Malawi’s representatives, Big Bullets have left gate management for their CAF Champions League final leg of the Preliminary round in the hands of the country’s Football Association.
FAM has since opened the bid by asking those who feel can run the demonstrate efficiently to express their interest to the Association secretariat.
Big Bullets play Fomboni De Moheil FC Saturday February 28 2015 at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre where incidents of fraud are eminent, but tickets for the game will be sold three days before the kickoff date.
Other than outsourcing the gate management services gate charges have also been raised up to make sure they reap as much as K25m, which Head of Marketing Dan Mbebuwa say is the target.
The open stands have been pegged at K1, 000 while MBC stand is costing K2, 500 but those interested to be at the Covered stands will have to pay K5, 000 and those seeking the comfort of the VIP stand, where many argue that many people enter free, will part ways with K10, 000.
Fomboni FC need not worry about the features at Kamuzu Stadium as it has an artificial turf just like Stade de Beaumer where Bullets got a goal through substitute Kumwenda’s superb that came in stoppage added time.
If anything, Fomboni have to worry about the ‘red army’ that will likely fill the terraces to the bream in their red and white combat to support their team.
Reports indicate that in Comoros the game was played under the eyes of 1,000 spectators which could be one-twentieth of those that will watch the game live from the terraces.
The Malawi team arrived at their base Wednesday but business was at a standstill wherever the team was making a stopover like, Songwe boarder, Mzuzu City, capital Lilongwe where and Zalewa Road Block.
Bullets Supporters’ vice-chairperson, Austin Kasito has since urged people who love Bullets to continue supporting the team through the TNM SMS campaign.
Cases of football team supporters taking control of gate management has been a thorny issue in Malawi with Blantyre becoming the worst.
