This is the highest amount of money ever realised from gate collections in the history of Malawi football.

From the gross collection, organisers of the event Luso Television pocketed the lions’ share of K25 million with ground owners- Ministry of Labour, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development claiming K9.6 million.

Football Association of Malawi (Fam) levy amounted to K3.8 million while security police personnel got a total of K2.7 million. The gate management firm owned by Lilongwe based Japhet Majekete pocketed K3.2 million.

Match stewards received K1.2 million in total with the rest of the expenses going towards printing of tickets, first aid, fire fighters and other expenses.

As per agreement with the organisers, Wanderers and Bullets did not benefit anything from the gates. Apart from dangling the 26-seater bus valued at K25 million, which was eventually won by Wanderers, the organisers paid for all the teams’ expenses, ranging from transport, meals, accommodation and game bonuses.

Fam general secretary Alfred Gunda, who provided the figures confirmed this is the highest amount ever realised from the gates in any football match.

The Bus Ipite first leg played at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on December 26, 2016 grossed K13.6 million.

The first game has really impressed. Let’s follow the trend during next matches. But all in all ticket sales were super.

Turning to the sponsors, tinene mowopa Mulungu, bus imene ija singakwane K25m ayi. Chimavuta ndi chiyani kungonena chilungamo?

Next time bullets and noma never allow these town mongers to use your names for their benefit , imagine they have raised more than 60 million Malawi kwacha from two matches without giving you anything apart from that so called 26 seater bus. MUYESEKONSO MATIMU ENAWA OSAMANGOTI MUKAFUNA KUPANGA NDALAMA NDIYE BASI BULLETS NDI WANDERERS ASEWERE NDICHOLINGA CHOFUNA KUPHA MAKWACHA ENI AKEWO AKUVUTIKA. NGATI MULI MADOLO PANGATI ZOTI WIZARD FC NDI DWANGWA FC ASEWERE TIONE NGATI MUPANGE NDALAMA ZOCHULUKA. BULLETS WAKE UP , NOEL LIPIPA WAKE UP AKUKUDYERANI MASUKU PAMUTU AKAMBEREMBERE APATAUNIWA.
