Malawi football blame game: FAM says not responsible for Bullets’ K30 million debt

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has distanced itself from the huge Big Bullets debts which they have accumulated as they were participating in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) champions league.

The debts have bloated to K30 million and they also risk legal action and a K4.2 million fine from CAF.

However, Bullets have excused themselves from taking responsibility of the debts, pushing it to FAM arguing the country’s football governing body managed the gate collections from Sunday’s first round, second leg match against Al Hilal of Sudan at Kamuzu Stadium.

“If it were not for the squabbles, we were targeting K40 million from the Al Hilal game. Better proceeds from the Fomboni game did not happen by accident; we had a strategy. Since people accused us of delaying to announce the figures, we allowed FAM to manage the next game,” Fote told local media justifying why all creditors are being referred to the association.

But  in a telephone interview with Nyasa Times , FAM commercial manager Casper Jangale, said Bullets’ debts have nothing to do with the association.

“FAM is not responsible for the Bullets’ debts. I’m sure you know how FAM operates and there is no way the association can settle debts accumulated by a club affiliated to Super League of Malawi,” Jangale said while referring this reporter to Bullets’ general secretary, Halord Fote.

Efforts to talk to Fote proved futile as his phone number was out of reach.

According to impeccable sources, Bullets owe Interocean Travel Limited K2.2 million as travel costs for referees who officiated the preliminary round, second leg match against Fomboni Club de Moheli at

Kamuzu Stadium. The Red army, among others, must also pay SKY Links Travel Bureau K13 212 500 for air ticket expenses for the first-leg trip to Sudan where they lost 4-0.

Some football analysts have argued that the Bullets’ huge debts have potential to affect the team’s performance in the TNM Super League.

Being the link does not mean you own a team secondly, footing out the bill is the entire responsibility of the team. Manning the gates is according to the rules. if you Bb have nothing to say keep quite and solve your problems. Who do you want to solve your problems, you thought you are being clever by chasing your bosses before sorting out money issues. Go to hell with your Problems. Mumangidwa nose mukapanda kulipira. Ramadaninso mumupatsa zake za contract yonse.

Anthu a Big Bullets mwatani kodi? Mukukhala ngati mitu yaduka bwanji? Du expect FAM to take responsibility ya ngongole yanu? Ndiyetu mwangokala a bunch ya anthu opanda manyazi okhaokha. Hahahahahaha! Are you really serious in expecting FAM to foot your bills? Do not hide behind the technicality of managing gate collections. That is a non starter. Or was it illegal for FAM to manage the gate collections? If yes then pursue that issue otherwise do not behave like brutes to push your liabilities to FAM. Let me give you my free advice: You better be looking at the ways of… Read more »

Good lesson for other teams. Bullets forgot that in 2004 they were being sponsored by government. I mean Bakili used our money to sponsor Bullets for political gain.

2015 was different. Bullets went empty handed joining CAF believing that fans will contribute generously. Went ahead getting Katapila. What a shame. You thought DR Mafuta Mwale and his executive were dull by not letting Silver Strikers join CAF? Anayiwonela patali game. Ndi mabankertu amenewa. Akanakhala amatama ngati Kondi msungama akanatenga Bank OD ku Reserve konko not katapila

Team yadyera koma ili yosauka. Mudakana sponsorship ya TOTAL kufuna kudyera Bakili. Ndizotu lero.
