FAM President Walter Nyamilandu : Fears for Bullets

Nyamilandu fears how Bullets would manage to meet the expenses of the Champions League expenses while the national team, which enjoys government funding struggles to fulfill assignments.

“I am very nervous about this uncertainty surrounding funding. It is a great concern to me and the association. I am worried that in the absence of sponsorship locally, how will they be able to fulfill international engagements with one trip costing K20m,” Nyamilandu said.

He said the team had no clear vision on how they would manage to secure sponsorship for tournament as the clock ticks closer to the first game against Fomboni of Coromos Island on February 13.

“I see a lot of pressure of pressure being piled on them to secure the sponsorship and there is no clear vision on where the funding will come from,” he said.

But he said the team’s successful participation in the tournament would benefit the nation.

“I am hoping for the best as their participation will benefit all of us. However my worry is that when fines are imposed it is the association [FAM] paying as they were registered in our name,” he said.

Bullets Chairperson Kondie Msungama however insisted that the discussions for a possible sponsorship were at higher level.

CAF stipulates that could face US$1,500 (about K750,000) fine and a country is banned for two editions.

Civo United and Escom United also registered to participate but withdrew from the tournament.

  2. Kumboni Stars says:

    I din’t expect frustrating remarks like these from one Walter Nyamulandu. Instead of sugesting ways of assiting the peoples team in getting funds for CAF participation, he is dicouraging them. Anyway, he was once a Nomads player and official, no wonder.

    Walter shut up concentrate on fam and wanderers leave bullets alone ukuona ngati ndalama zichokera Mu nthumba mwako eti shut up and just concentrate on your habit of womanising

  6. golo says:

    This statement from FA president is unfortunate.H e should be the one in the forefront assisting in the solicitation of funds, after all he hasn’t asked Bullets how they are going to meet all the expenses related to CAF champions league participation. He is always doubting and that’s the problem of a person who sits in an office and his thinking horizon is also confined to that office not knowing that the sky is the limit…. amati kanthu ndi khama phwiti anakwatira njiwa …. ili ndi khama la BB asiyeni afuna kuona kuti munthu ukachita khama zimakutengera pati.


    zanunso izo a nyamilandu, koma ikanakhala wanderers ndiye mukanakhala pasogolo looking for sponsors. bullets ndi timu yabwino kwathu kuno ngakhale imakunyasani a nyamilandu. try to develop football not kill the game of in Malawi,

    Instead of encouraging the BB committee n helping them to find away to get money,he is busy discouraging.

  13. popi says:

    The peoples team!, do not make silly comments and useless noise, all we want is for you to be financially sound and stable for the tornament. Bullets will carry malawian flag at the continental showpiece and we don’t want the team to dissapoint us. all this requires money!

  14. Mulopwana Wa Mamwene says:

    I was just hearing from people that Walter Nyamilandu doesn’t want Big Bullets because he supports Wnderous, today I have read with eyes that this guy is indeed testless water in football fraternity. How can you that stupid word yet you are FAM President? You are supposed to be proud of your country and encourage companies to support and sponsor such participations. That’s why you have fought tooth and nail to make sure that Big Bullets doesn’t secure sponsoship from local and international companies like the way you did with Carlsberg sponsorship and Beforward. Water be patriotic citizen, after it’s time for you to move out of FAM

  15. Cashgate 1 says:

    I agree with Walter, these things need a good preparation. I fear the team will run out of resources in the middle of the games which is a poor planning. Rather Bullets need to have that budget ready and may be they can raise an contingent part of the budget as surplus in case of any eventualities. Remember it happened for frames just recently and FAM Management looked foolish in running up and down to source money, is that what Bullets wants? lucky for National team they were rescued because of national support, what about Bullets case?

  16. Bigteamz says:

    Alibe kanthu yet mukukhu zochuluka!

  17. Gum says:

    The President must be the first one to demonstrate by encouraging the bullets family as it will represent Malawi. Think positively and help the club to secure sponsorship. Forget about club allegiance!

  34. kyroc says:

    FAM President is incompetent. the soccer fraternity knows he is bias. he tries to thwart Bullets. But know this: Maule had been there,is here and will be there while ya presidency is for a short time. pulezidenti woyipa kwabasi.

    Too ambitious for nothing.
    An economy on its knees, judges on strike, acb, university shut down, doctors and nurses threatening…, with no hope in sight….
    More importantly, Kaferapanjira of MCCCI says local companies are currently not making any profits. So, who will fund them???? Kapena ku “Commercial Capital” kuli bwino???

  45. Israel Difense Force says:

    What the FAM boss is talking is reality, a team that does not even have a wooden chair requesting for a financial support amounting to 180 million MWK, which well wisher will be confortable to release such huge amount of money?

  46. Mbolo Sidwala! says:

    It’s unfortunate such a statement is coming from the president himself. No wonder mpira sikupita patsogolo ku Malawi! So what Walter sees in the dark cloud is storm not rain for the harvest. I thought sukulu yake anachita ya economics/marketing? Do u know who is an entrepreneur or what is entrepreneurship? Tilimbikitseni, a pulezident! Money should not be an issue here but the desire to succeed! Go maule go! More fire mapale!

  47. Fwetseki says:

  51. Mngoni weniweni says:

    Anthu oganiza zosa……, sanga….., ndipo sadza……tha. Mr Nyamilandu, why thinking negatively against Big Bullets! If it Wanderers, you would be going company after another looking for an assistance, but coz its BB, you can see a doom of failure. Mwauponda man!! Ife ndi Maule!!! After all mwanena kale kuti it will be FAM that will pay after we fail an assignment, so it’s up to you kuti muisove!! Simple!!!!

  62. Tilipo says:

    Let us wait and see. You want to blame Water for expressing his worry. Why? He is the president of FAM meaning football in Malawi. Remember he is interested to see Bullets successful.
    His point is that there is no clue yet how Fote is going to find money for the tournament. Simple and straightforward.
    Why can’t some people see sense. Appreciate what Water is fearing. Give us the clues and everyone will be happy and no day dreaming here. Everyone wishes but all that is required is money.
    DONT accurse Nyamilandu give him your solutions. It is FAM that gets the penalty for childish failure if that can happen without proper research and planning on Bullets side.
