Football Association of Malawi ( FAM) has announced the main pre-selling tickets points for this coming Saturday’s explosive Carlsberg Cup finals involving Big Bullets and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
FAM competitions manager Gomezgani Zakazaka has stressed that no tickets will be sold on the match day.
Fans would be K2,000 for Open Stands, K5,000 Covered K5,000 and VIP Stand: K10,000.
“The pre-sale of tickets will run from the afternoon of Wednesday 26th August to Friday 28th August 2015. Places where tickets will be sold will be announced in due course,” said Zakazaka.
Zakazaka said the move would help to give a chance to many fans to access the tickets more easily.
“It is the wish of FAM to reach out to as many people as possible to access the tickets,” Zakazaka said.
Zakazaka said some fans fail to watch games because they are not comfortable to que up to buy tickets on the very day of a game.
The selling points are as follows:
Chiwembe Technical Centre
Civo Stadium, Kafoteka Filling Station, Petroda Filling Station pa Thank, Kawale filling Station, Area 23 filling Station, Likuni filling Station, Area 18 filling Station, Area 25 filling Station, City Centre Puma Filling Station, Bwandiro near Silver Stadium entrance and Mbowe filling Station
Zakazaka said: “Fans are therefore advised to get their tickets in good time on the said days.”
It will be the first time that the two teams will clash in the final of a knockout competition in 12 years.
Ironically the two teams last met in the final of the same competition 12 years ago which ended in controversy leading to the giant brewer withdrawing sponsorship before coming back a few years ago.
To reach the final Bullets beat Silver Strikers 3-0 in the semi-finals on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium while Wanderers edged Moyale FC 1-0 at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Sunday.
In Saturday’s match, Jaffalie Chande scored the Bullets’ opener in the 12th minute and Bullets led 1-0.
The Divason Mlozi, fresh from his Swaziland stint, added the second before Chiukepo Msowoya closed the scoresheet.
On Sunday, Victor Nyirenda’s lone strike in the 22nd minute, was enough to book the Nomads a place in the semis.
The winner of the tournament will pocket K9 million with the losing finalist getting a K5 million consolation cheque.
Meanwhile both teams are playing mind games on their preparations.
