Nyasa Big Bullets are banking on the media to help the club garner support from the corporate world for their three-day international bonanza.
The bonanza which will be staged at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre from Friday, will feature Clube Ferroviario de Nampula of Mozambique, Zimbabwe’s Chicken Inn, and local sides Be Forward Wanderers and Bullets.
Senior Business Development Manager for the People’s Team, Kelvin Moyo, said they had reduced broadcasting rights because the team realises the important role the media plays in selling the game.
“We are prepared for the tournament. We are currently working hard to bring all stakeholders on board. The main purpose of this tournament is to invest in a venture whose fruits we will reap in the next five years.
“We are urging the media to join us because they are our partners. To achieve this, we have deliberately slashed broadcasting rights to accommodate them. This is a massive party for all football lovers in the off-season break. We only need good publicity for the tournament so that stakeholders should be enticed to sponsor us,” Moyo said.Advertisement
He disclosed that Bullets expect to spend about K50 million on the bonanza.
Bullets will kick off the event on Friday with a match against Ferroviario de Nampula while Wanderers will take on Chicken Inn.
On Saturday, Bullets face Chicken Inn whereas the Nomads will entertain Ferroviario .
The tournament ends on Monday with Bullets playing against Wanderers, to be followed by Chicken Inn’s match against Ferroviaro.
