Zambezi Challenge Cup between Bullets FC and Zimbabwe’s top league side CAPS United has shifted to Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre from Malawi’s Capital City of Lilongwe’s Civo Stadium.
The game, which was also initially scheduled for March 3 taking advantage of the Marty’s Holiday in Malawi, has been moved to Wednesday, March 4.
Head of organising committee Kelvin Moyo said the changes were necessitated by Bullets’ March 4 engagement.
“Bullets are having a charity work on March 3 as they will go to Chikwawa to visit some of the people affected by the floods,” Moyo said.
“So it would have been difficult for them to travel to Chikwawa on Tuesday and then Lilongwe for the game. They asked for the changes. So the organising committee accepted them.”
Bullets chairperson Kond i Msungama confirmed of the changes eying Bullets had made a commitment to visit flood-hit people in Chikwawa.
“We wanted to show our human face by visiting the people who were affected by the floods,” Msungama said.
But he did not indicate whether the team would donated items or not.
Last year the Zambezi Challenge Cup involved four teams, CAPS, Bullets, Mighty Wanderers and Silver Strikers.
