Newly elected Be Forward Wanderers Treasurer, Robert Mbedza, has said the team’s Executive Committee will resurrect fundraising activities for stadium construction.
In 2016, Wanderers held fundraising activities, including dinner and dance, to raise money for buying a piece of land for the stadium.
However, Wanderers abandoned the idea after failing to raise enough money.
But Mbedza, while not guaranteeing construction of the stadium by his committee, said buying a piece of land was possible.
“We are one of the oldest teams in the country and the idea to have a piece of land for our stadium was great. All we need is to purchase land so that whoever comes in future at Wanderers should have a good foundation. It is our hope that we will manage to do this,” Mbedza said.
Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, last Sunday, after being ushered into office, said the committee has great ambitions for the new season.
The team’s Supporters Committee General Secretary, Sam Mponda, said they would support the stadium project.
“We are very sure that they will achieve that. Having a piece of land will give us hope that one day the dream of having our stadium will come true,” Mponda said.
Meanwhile, Nyasa Big Bullets said they were also looking for a piece of land to build a 10, 000-seater capacity stadium.
