The Nomads are complaining that the two matches they played in the central region in this year’s competition costed them a lot of money.

The Nomads are expected to face Civo Service United in this years’ Standard Bank final.

This will be Wanderers’s third assignment to be played in the central region in all the four matches in total they are to play in Standard Bank Cup.

Nomads General Secretary Mike Butao said they do not have a problem playing in the central region but asked Fam to consider cutting the costs through compensation.

“We do not have a problem playing at Civo or anywhere, but it is becoming quiet a costly exercise for us now.

“Hope Fam will note this and compensate us the transport and accomodation a tleast,” Butao is quoted as saying in the Daily Times dated 20th October, 2015.

But in response, Standard Bank Organizing Comittee Chairperson Jaber Alide has turned down the plea indicating that the rules and regulations of the competition are clear that the committee in consultation with the sponsors can decide the venue for Standard Bank cup matches.

“At Civo, we are looking at issues of capacity, accessibility and security in general as we expect a large number of fans to watch the game. We have looked at several factors,” said Alide.

Wanderers beat Blue Eagles 1-0 to reach the final while Civo hammered Bullets F.C 2-1.

Alide is hoping that by going to Lilongwe Civo will win the trophy. How can one team play all its games away at Civo as if Nomads are beggars? You want to drain the teams resources? Fam mbuzi/Jaba alide mbuzi/ std bank mbuzi/ Pitala mbuzi yayikulu.
