TNM Super League of Malawi champions, Big Bullets have praised Mafco FC for choosing Chitowe Stadium to be their home ground, saying it is one of the best football pitches in the country which offers teams a chance to display purposeful football.
Bullets FC has also paid special tribute to the ground owners Illovo Sugar Corporation and the stadium managers for their respective roles in making sure that the ground is in good shape and offers entertainment to soccer lovers in Malawi’s central region.
Chitowe stadium which is situated within the Illovo-Dwangwa Sugar Estates and home ground for Salima based Malawi Armed Forces College (Mafco) outfit was constructed over three decades ago by Illovo Sugar Corporation and has been managed by Illovo-Dwangwa Company all along.
“We thank Mafco for choosing Chitowe Stadium to be their home ground. This is one of the grounds that are good in the country. It can be rated second to the Kamuzu Stadium and we are also happy for the ground owners in the way they look after the stadium and promote the game of soccer in the country,” said Bullets Team Manager, Rahim Ishmael Saturday.
Rahim, one of the youthful Soccer administrators in the country, was speaking after TNM re-launch for the second round which saw Bullets defeat home team Mafco with a goal from Yamikani Fodya, who has established himself as a free kick specialist.
Dwangwa is one of the townships in the country that has shown that it has many people that love sports, especially football, golf darts and cycling and the idea by Mafco to use Chitowe stadium as a home ground was received with enthusiasm by people from the township and Nkhotakota district as a whole, and in return, people from the people give the Army team moral support whenever it plays at Chitowe.
Illovo has a football team, Dwasco (Dwangwa Sugar Corporation) which stars in the Central region Chipiku premier league but once played for the Super league. The team is currently chasing leadership in the league. It has also produced football stars and coaches of international repute like Esau Kanyenda and Llyod Nkhwazi.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
