Bullets, Silver pocket K49 million

The TNM Super League match between giants FCB Nyasa Bullets and Silver Strikers played at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre pocketed K49.1 million in gate revenue.

Silver Strikers, now coached by Bullets legend Peter Mponda, broke the hearts of the hosts when Chinsinsi Maonga scored a late goal just a minute after coming in as a substitute to inspire the Bankers to a famous 1-0 victory.

 

According to information we have seen, the two teams and stadium owners received K10.16 million each while Super League of Malawi and Football Association of Malawi received their K4 million share each.

 

The match revenue sheet, match day sales generated K32.8 million while K3.23 million was made from e-ticketing with the remainder being generated through advance ticket sales.

Both teams said they were satisfied with the figure.

 

Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said: “We are fine with it because the gate charges were lower than the derby.”

 

Silver chief executive officer Patrick Chimimba also said they are happy with the revenue.

“The pre-sale of tickets seems to have been well embraced and we are on the right path.

“We should thank our counterparts Bullets for involving us throughout the process.”

 

This was the second highest revenue in the top-flight league after the Blantyre derby between Bullets and mighty Mukuru Wanderers at the same venue which made K80.4 million last month.

 

The other high-profile fixture between the Bankers and the Nomads at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe last month grossed K33 million, which was a record at the stadium.
