The team which held its EGM on Sunday at Kumudzi Eco centre, unanimously voted that its sponsor Nyasa should be the key owner of the team and give them mandate to find partners who can help in running the team

One of the trustees, Malinda Chinyama who heads the marketing team,   said the country’s most successful needs to go commercial.

Chinyama said if the team go commercial it will be able to generate its own revenue that will be helping the team operations.

He said with the current economic challenges facing the country no company is interested to give out its hard earned resources in form of sponsorship without expecting to win something, saying gone are the days that sponsorship meant donation as now companies wants a win-win situation

Kennedy Nkhoma a Bullets trustee said it’s high time the team owns its brand amend name by preventing traders who are selling the club’s  branded merchandises without the teams blessings and without the team gaining anything, saying this can only be done if the team adopt commercialization drive

To enable the team go commercial the assembly also unanimously voted for the dissolution and deregistration of the trusteeship which the team is registered and being operated on within 60 days and send a proposal to its sponsors Nyasa.

Delegates have since agreed to sale the majority of the team’s ownership to Nyasa and empower them to find other would-be partners that can come and buy shares from the team.

The AGM has since given fresh mandate to its acting chairperson Noel Lipipa to come up with the team that he is going to work with to ensure they follow all legal procedures to change the team into a Limited company and write a proposal to the Nyasa if they can be key owner of the tea, within the agreed period of 60 days when the trustees shall cease to be trustees of the team

In his remarks, Lipipa described the assembly as the genesis of what he believes a new chapter as the team now is going into the right direction of commercialization drive.

    Make it Blantyre Bullets FC because it will represent a city with a lot of history and the name will be permanent with a professional touch to it. Nyasa manufacturing as a sponsor, can not use its name to be the name of a club, that’s not a professional setting.

    It is time the league in Malawi turned professional with clubs being named after cities and towns they represent. The case with Be-forward Wanderers is another example of a team not fully representing its community . You can’t have a team being called by the name of a used car dealer; for Wanderers to be a real professional team , it has to be called either Limbe Wanderers or Blantyre Wanderers. Any team that bears a sponsor’s name or is affiliated to the military or police need to be in an amateur or semi-professional league. As of now, teams such as Silver Strikers, Civil Sporting, Wizards, Blantyre United, Karonga United, Dwangwa United, Chitipa United, and Zomba United qualify to be in the professional league because of their names which are independent of sponsors’ names . They represent the communities and are not dictated by sponsors. All that is needed is for such teams is to be fully commercialized and seek sponsors as partners.

    Malawi should learn from England. Even small towns in England have teams representing communities and those teams are named after towns. Any business operating in those towns can show interest to sponsor their community team apart from sponsors from abroad. It is very annoying to have a team followed by many in a city or nationwide, keep on changing names to appease sponsors. The history of Malawi should also be reflected on its teams with names that represent its communities.
