Cash strapped Malawi champions Big Bullets have pressed the panic button over the lack of sponsorship ahead of the team’s ambitious 2015 CAF champion’s league participation next month.
Bullets chairman Kondie Nsungama said the club is in the dark on whether mobile service provider TNM who promised to financially support them in the campaign, will indeed release the much needed cash.
“We are now getting anxious because time is running out and TNM are yet to come out on the pledge they made,” said Msungama in comments made in The Nation newspaper on Friday January 23, 2015.
Msungama was reacting to TNM public relations and sponsorship manager Limbani Nsapato’s response to the paper that so far, nothing has come up on their pledge to assist Bullets.
The Bullets chair said TNM did not indicate what kind of assistance they would “and that puts us in an awkward
situation because it is becoming difficult in terms of planning.”
Nsapato said he could not say “when or what sort of assistance because as at now there’s nothing.”
Bullets play their CAF preliminary round first leg against Club Fomboni of Comoros Islands on the weekend of
February 13 2015 away in a trip that would cost about K30 million.
