Football Association of Malawi ( FAM) has suspended its plans for advance tickets selling for the Carlsberg Cup final between Bullets FC and Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Saturday.
FAM had earlier announced the pre-selling of tickets for the dream cup final pitting Malawi’s most popular and successful top league clubs after a meeting held on Wednesday, the day when the selling was scheduled to start.
“Following a meeting held today at Civo stadium with representatives of the two Carlsberg Cup finalists, Big Bullets FC and Be Forward Wanderers and the Civo Stadium Management, the Carlsberg Cup Organising Committee would like to announce that selling of the tickets for the final match between the two teams on Saturday 29th August 2015 will be done on the day of the match at Civo Stadium from 6 O’clock in the morning,’.
Carlsberg Cup Competition Chairman Jabber Alide, who chaired the meeting said the agreement has been reached after the parties considered a variety of issues during the discussions.
“The Carlsberg Cup Organising Committee noted the various merits and demerits in the foregoing arrangement of pre-selling the tickets and notes that this consensus has been reached in the spirit of mutual respect and in the interest of the game,” he said in a statement.
“The Organising Committee would like to kindly request all supporters and stakeholders to timely proceed to the stadium on the date of the match to avoid congestion.”
The meeting also resolved the early opening of the stadium gates to facilitate a smooth process during the finals.
The organising committee apologised to all supporters and stakeholders for the inconvenience the change may cause.
The Open stands for the game is K2,000, with the Covered Stand going at K5,000 while the VIP charge is fixed at K10,000.
