The game between Bullets and Mighty Wanderers on Saturday in a high profile Blantyre derby in the TNM Super League, raised K8.3 million gross gate collections.
Sulom general secretary Williams disclosed that each club pocketed K2 million, cashiers and supervisors got K720,000, Malawi Police Service K345,000.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) and Football Association of Malawi (Fam) received K431,000 each while Malawi National Council of Sports got K240,000 from the cut.
Stewards were paid K420,000 and paramedics got K20,000.
But the Sulom general secretary still feels that the revenue was on the lower side and the gate collection could have raised more if the gate collection was outsourced.
“We are happy with the collection. However the game could have raised more if the game was handled by private cashiers,” Banda said.
The game attracted an impressive crowd despite that the Open stands tickets were at K500 while MBC stand tickets were at K1,000
Those wishing who watch the game from the covered stand coughed K2,000 while the VIP stand was at K3,000.
The derby ended in a one-all draw after Bullets’ talismanic striker Gabadinho’s 40th minute goal was cancelled by Innocent Dzimbiri in the 85th minute.
