Carlsberg Malawi to sponsor both Wanderers, Bullets again

Carlsberg Malawi Limited on Tuesday disclosed that Mighty Wanderers and Big Bullets have done enough to earn the brewers’ sponsorship and they will all be bankrolled to the tune of K15 million about $38, 000) each

CEO for Carlsberg Malawi Abel Chanje told a news conference at Protea Ryalls, Blantyre, that “after a thorough determination” they realised that b oth Wanderers and Bullets put up strong determination for the sponsorship.

“I want to remind you Carlsberg does not condone indiscipline…you could have done far far better. There was no much significance in terms of behaviour and performance for both teams,” Chanje said.

Carlsberg were last season funding both Bullets and Wanderers  at the same tune of K15 million and said one that impresses in fair play, performance and discipline would  get the final nod as the team to be picked for a long-term deal.

Both sides had some equal measure of blemishes and successes.

They, both, finished the season with a cup each (Standard Bank Cup for Wanderers and Presidential Cup for Bullets) while also sharing crowd trouble cases.

Supporters of the two teams were all smiles following the announcement of sponsorship news.

However,  some football fans have argued that development will kill the fan and rivalry that has always been there between the two teams.
“One team wins another loses. Why sponsoring both teams? Who told them to pledge sponsorship to one team? You have killed the fun,” said one football follower who asked for anonymity.
While congratulating the company for renewing its commitment towards football development in the country, Moses Wandale said the company is also championing “policies of appeasement” in football circles.
 Carlsberg will at the end of the year review the sponsorship and Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu cautioned the clubs against hooliganism and violence
