“We are a big company and we always want to be associated with a winning team. So teams should produce good results,” Vitsitsi said.

He also cautioned on aspiring teams to demonstrate a spirit of fairplay, discipline and financial prudence as other conditions for the sponsorship.

“We are ready to sponsor a team that shows discipline on the pitch and financial management,” he said.

Mighty Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao said the team had already submitted a proposal to Be Forward management on the possibility of clinching a sponsorship deal.

Bullets chairperson Kondi Msungama also said the teams had an audience with the Be Forward management at Sunbird Capital Hotel in Lilongwe over the same issue.

Be Forward organised a four-team tournament involving two Blantyre teams Wanderers and Bullets and their Lilongwe counterparts Silver Strikers and Epac played on Friday and Saturday.

Silver, who beats Bullets 1-0, won the tournament budgeted at K7 million with to pocket K2 million while Epac got K1 million a losing finalists.

Wanderers, who lost to Epac 4-3 on penalty shoot outs in the first game beat Bullets on third place play-offs to win K500,000 while Bullets got consolation prize of K250,000.

In a related development the tournament grossed K8 million from gate collection for the two-day tournament with K5.3 million raised on the first day and K3.1 million on second day.

The tournament organising committee general secretary Rashid Ntelera said the money was on the lower side considering the number of people who turned out.

Fellowship Association of Malawi (Fama) was entrusted with the gate collection management.

If the sponsors want a team with good performance, will BB and Noma win this sponsorship? I hope EPAC can get this because the former two teams performed badly during the tournament.
