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 raising the funds to make good you debts. Failure to do that in good time you risk the trustees being taken to court to face the bankruptcy charges. Imagine the trustees losing the bankruptcy charges i.e. “the peoples’ team” being declared bankrupt! Eiiish! For those of the team’s supporters who do not know what this means (and I think they are quite many!!), it means the team’s assets will have to be sold to service the debts. But that is not all! It also means the team will not be allowed to do business in Malawi for the next 7 years!!! Now in simple terms let’s assume the bankruptcy is concluded on 31st October 2015, then BB would only be allowed to do business (to play football – for that is its business) on 1st November 2022!!!!! Now now now I don’t know if the team can still be BB at that time. Yambani kusonkha limodzilimodzi to avoid this possibility. DO NOT WASTE TIME WITH FAM coz ngongole yanu sikuwakhudza and I think sanasayinilepo ngongole yanu iliyonse. Pretend that you are not savages and concentrate on the way forward. ZAMANYAZI KWAMBIRI FOR THE PEOPLES’ TEAM TO TURN THEMSELVES INTO CARTOONS!!!!!

    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.

    Mbuli ndani pakati pa FAM ndi BB i THOUGHT fam WAS SAYING caf DOES NOT KNOW BB BUT FAM and also said they are the ones to manage the gate collections against Al Hilal? Now why change tune,Masewera awana ukalowelera mkulu chifukwa cha dyera umayaluka nazo. FAM should pay for the debts.A Jangale musaoneke ngati ochenjera koma pakanakhala kuti Bullets yapeza ndalama bwenzi mukuti it is FAM success.Truly,”Failure is an orpha and Success has got so many parents”

    Matama siabwino. Anthu muli mabondo mbuuu ngati a mbuzi nkumakaiputa dala CAF? Why forcing matters if you had no money???? This is very shameful.

  11. Roots says:

    How is FAM involved in the Bullets debt? I saw a strategy in barbaric Fote that they wanted to use FAM as an excuse in the liquidation of their debts. Bullets is full of salvages. How could one say he expected MK40 million amid confusion and 100 percent increase on gate charges. I think Fote needs to understand the demand concept. FAM avoid dealing with these salvages. THey failed to account for JB, TNM and Fomboni gate colections. Asiyeni masaveji awa

    Big Bullets, explain why you say you paid accommodation for the Sudan Team yet they paid for themselves. They also paid for your transactions in Sudan and agreed with you that due to your financial woes, Sudanese were bent to pay everything on their own in Malawi and for you in Sudan. How and from where did the debt accumulate. Anthu osayamika inu. Mukhalira uba komweko nkona team yakalekale mpaka pano ilibe ground, buildings, basi and permanent human resource. Volonteers like Forte and Msungama cant make a team rich, instead the would like to reap the team. Wake up Malawians.

    We have always risen from the ashes as bullets family and it will be the same this time around kungoti many football administrators and influential individuals ara wanderers sympathisers and always try hard to kill off us and the carlsberg sponsorship is aa good example of the corporate world hypocrisy and biasness away from bullets but just as we are called ma PALESTINA this name did not come out of the blues, we are resilient, hardcore fans and we won’t just lie down and die a natural death, it will be total war this year, TIKUMANA nonse mabwana a corporate ndi mabanja anu musayerekeze kubwera ku ma game coz ikhala yemen mwana
