Bullets banned from Airtel Top 8, fined K7.2m for violence

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) disciplinary committee has slapped Malawi football powerhouse, Nyasa Big Bullets  with a K7.2 million fine following the violence that erupted after the Airtel Top 8 final against Blue Eagles at Bingu National Stadium (BNS).

Bullets fans teargassed during the violence at Airtel TOP 8 finals

The People’s Team has been found guilty on six counts in a fracas that left property damaged and referee Misheck Juba assaulted, for giving a late penalty to eventual winners, Eagles.

According to the verdict  released by FAM on Friday, the disciplinary committee has further ordered Nyasa Big Bullets to pay K325 606.25 for damages caused at BNS and banned them from playing at the said stadium until the repairs are done.

Bullets will also pay for the cost of the proceedings amounting to K971 635.

FAM has also ordered Bullets to pay K1 million, which was suspended last year following violence at MDC Stadium in a Fisd Challenge Cup match against Karonga United, where they were told not to commit a similar offence within two years from November 2017.

Bullets have also been banned from the next edition of the Airtel Top 8.

BB fans and players please refrain from violence and learn to accept defeat in whatever form.Refereees are human and they make mistakes.They need to make decisions quickly when football is being played and they can easily make errors so we need to learn to accept and forgive.

BB is playing well this season so lets support and encourage the team.It is not easy to win all the times.

Wampira, just accept that a wrong was committed. The team deserves the punishment. Even if Bullets stops participating in competitions that will not kill the game in the country…..life goes. By the way, have you noted that elections have taken place in Zimbabwe without Robert Mugabe?? No-one is indispensable.

No work done if the individuals who caused the havoc are left free. Something fishy has taken place. Typical of Malawi.
