TNM pumps K15m for Bullets CAF Comoros trip: ‘Always with you’

Despite Big Bullets rejecting  TNM’s offer to run an SMS promotion to enable the club raise funds for their CAF Champions League campaign, the mobile phone service providers have pumped K15 million ($33 333) rescue package to the Malawi champions.

TNM, sponsors of the flagship Super League, announced during the prize presentation ceremony in December last year that they would assist Bullets in their CAF campaign.

Bullets chairperson Kondie Msungama said they had slashed their budget to K15 million  for the first leg preliminary encounter against Fomboni Club in Comoros Islands slated for February 14.

This then means TNM sponsorship covers all the expenses for the Comoros trip.

“We can confidently say that our trip is on and grateful to TNM,” said Msungama.

Apart from the K15 million, TNM has also donated two sets of uniforms worth K1 160 000 ($ 3 555) to the Bullets. The uniforms are for away and home games.

TNM chief commercial Officer Dan Makata said to ensure financial viability of the Bullets Champions’ League project, the mobile operator has launched an SMS promotion to raise funds from its customers.

“As a proud and patriotic Malawian service provider, we are giving Big Bullets an advance of K15 million to be recovered from the revenue we’ll generate through the SMS promotion. Further, we are donating two sets of uniform as a part of our corporate social responsibility,” Makata said.

Makata said with a customer base of more than K2.5 million($5 555), TNM estimates to raise K30 million ($66 666) from the promotion, which will run for eight weeks.

Customers are requested to send their SMS to the code 2015 and each SMS costs K50, of which K40 goes to the club.

He said lucky customers stand a chance of winning up to K2 million ($4 444) in cash prizes and airtime worth K100 000 during fortnight draws. One lucky customer will win K1 million during the grand draw.

“We urge all TNM customers to participate in the promotion to assist the Bullets’ cause while at the same time standing a chance of winning big cash and airtime,” he said.

The Bullets need some $400 000 to fulfill all their Caf engagements.

    You don’t cross the river by just watching, you go into the waters. At least BB knows what it takes to big competitions.

    I doubt whether BB executive are still practicing Christians. They could tell lies , non stop all day long.

    Ndinamva Kondie akulankhulana ndi Brian wa Times amanena kuti ma Sapota ( Supporters) a Bullets ali 5,000,000 ( That is why it is called ” The Peoples Team”! Are these real supporters? Are they living supporters?

    How I wish Kondie a ka bwera tidzawonane. Simple Arithmetic, if all these are living supporters and contributed only MK1,000.00, they would make MK5,000,000,000.00 (MK5 Billion). Why then are they crying for sponsorship? Shame!!!!!!!! Shame.

  41. Timvane Tembo says:

    Good show TNM, koma aMalawi ena sindidziwa kuti maganizo awo ngotani. what is your problem? Atsogoleri a mantha safunika koma kulimba mtima zinthu zimatheka. Tadandaula kwa nthawi yayitali kuti nchifukwa chiani ma team akuno kwathu sachita nawo mipikisano. Koma zatengera atsogoleri a bullets kulimba mtima. Nanuso atsogoleri a matimu ena limbani mtima nzotheka. No wonder our national Team is a big shame because our teams do not participate in these competetions. The fruits of 2004 were seen in 2010.
    TNM woyeee, maule woyeeee.
