The other teams are Silver Strikers and Dedza Young Soccer.

By invading the pitch, the clubs’s supporters contravened Article 21(16) as read with Article 21(2) of SULOM rules and regulations, according to SULOM Treasurer, Tiya Nsomba Banda.

Bullets faced the offence when some of their followers invaded the pitch following their 2-1 victory over Lilongwe based side, Civo FC, while their city rivals Wanderers’ unidentified support invaded the pitch during the half time of their match against Silver at Kamuzu stadium.

Silver supporters invaded the pitch to celebrate the Bankers’ 2-0 win over Wanderers. Likewise, Mzuni’s and Dedza Young Soccer followers invaded their pitch at the end of their matches against Red Lions and Kamuzu Barracks, respectively.

“Please be reminded that your club is responsible for the actions of your supporters and that you are required to take all the necessary precautions to prevent your supporters invading the pitch before, during, and after the match,” said Banda.

Banda said pitch invasion by Mzuni supporters also threatened the security of the match officials, hence the K300,000 fine.

I think the football bodies need to revisit the rule on pitch invasions. They should differenciate celebrations and invasions.
You are punishing teams for celebrating, I thing this is inhuman. Had it been that they went there with evil intention such as stoning the visiting teams.
Think and think carefully akuluakulu.


People paid their money to woch a beautiful game, so they were deliberately amused by the ref.


Sorry, Mzuni sapotaz ddnt invade the pich, but it was all those who were flastrated by the ref decesion giving a fake penalty against Mzuni at 90
