The cup final attracted an impressive crowd despite that the game involved a lower league side, Zomba United.

Bullets beat Zomba United 2-0 without much pressure with goals on either side of the half from Victor Limbani and captain Henry Kabichi.

The teams pocketed a K2.6 million leaving the rest to be shared among FAM, Malawi National Council of Sports, government and expenses towards security.

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda said they were happy with the revenue considering that they  pegged the charges as low as K500 for Open Stands.

The match attracted many soccer fans who either rallied behind Bullets and or Zomba United following the hype created by both camps ahead of the final.

Zomba United threatened that they would win with Divine Intervention forcing Bullets controversial winger Fischer Kondowe to bet his Toyata Rava 4 with any challenger should his team had lost.

But nobody came forward to take up the bet as Bullets beat Zomba 2-0 to win the cup.
