Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has admitted that it is becoming very difficult to control the number of supporters patronizing super league games at the country’s soccer cathedral Kamuzu stadium particularly games involving big teams.
This follows last weekend’s Blantyre derby involving old age rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and Big Bullets in which the stadium flooded beyond its capacity putting lives of people at risk.
“It is very hard for us to control people entering the stadium,” said Suleman.
Suleman suggested that the best way is for the government with assistance from relevant stakeholders including the corporate world to construct a new stadium in Blantyre.
“This is the time we should get a big and better stadium in Blantyre” he said.
The capacity of Kamuzu stadium was reduced in 2009 to a capacity of about 20,000 people on safety grounds after it was revealed that some parts of the stadium were in a very bad shape and needed renovation.
Meanwhile, veteran soccer analyst Charles Nyirenda and sports journalist Leonard Sharra of Montfort Media have also ordered the government, Sulom and the local soccer governing body Football Association of Malawi (FAM) to take action by putting strong measures to ensure that the stadium never park beyond capacity.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
