The TNM Premier League matches in the first week raised K23.2 million gross in all the venues of this country, Super Premier League of Malawi treasure Tiya Somba Banda confirmed.
Banda described the gross as a good start to the season and hailed the team supporters for adhering to their commitment of not manning the gates.
“This is very commendable and we also promise to be accountable and transparent. Raking K23 million in week one it promises to be a good season,” said Banda.

“It is our hope that the teams will continue benefiting more from the system,” said Banda.
