Bullets win appeal, to face Silver at Mulanje Park in Airtel Top 8 second leg

Nyasa Big Bullets have won an appeal to have their Airtel Top 8 Quarter Final 2nd leg match against Silver Strikers staged at Mulanje Park Stadium. Initially, the game was scheduled to take place at the Zomba Community Centre (ZACC) Ground according to an earlier fixture released by Football Association of Malawi (FAM).

The change follows a complaint filled by Bullets to FAM in which among other things they argued that ZACC ground especially the pitch itself is in a bad state.

This  prompted Bullets to send a delegation of some of its officials to inspect Mulanje Park Stadium few days ago opting to choose the newly built district stadium as their second home.

FAM through a revised fixture for Airtel Top 8 2nd leg quarter final matches released on Tuesday confirms the change.

But Nyasa Times understands that Silver Strikers are still not comfortable to play at Mulanje Park Stadium and have penned FAM raising security concerns at the new allocated venue thus interms of patronage as well as safety of players.

The Bankers General Secretary Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda described their encounter as a very high profile match that will attract a huge crowd and not fit to be staged at a venue which has a capacity of not more than 5000 people.

But FAM through it’s Competitions Manager Gomezgani Zakazaka has turned down the security fears and promised that the will put in place strict measures to ensure they provide maximum security on the match day.

In justifying why they have bowed down to Bullets pressure to move the game from Zomba to Mulanje, Zakazaka said according to rules and regulations  of the Airtel Top 8 Cup, the home side stands a chance to choose an alternative venue.

He cited an example of the first leg involving Bullets and Silver in which the bankers opted to use Bingu National Stadium as their home instead of their official Silver Stadium.

Thumbs to Fam official for sticking to the rules & regulations of the competition. For Bullets make sure ur appeal bear the fruits otherwise supporters won’t spear you once the game goes other way round.
