Big Bullets, Civo United clash beats target


Big Bullets and Civo United’s Standard Bank Knock-Out Cup semifinal on Thursday beat its revenue target by raising K10.9 million from the targeted K10.7 million at Kamuzu Stadium.

Football Association of Malawi (Fam) printed 19,900 tickets that were supposed to realise the K10.7 million target.

According to Football Association of Malawi (Fam) facility and transfer matching system manager, Casper Jangale, the biggest expense was K1.6 million that went to Malawi Police Service which provided maximum security.


The teams received K1.7 million each. Stadium owners and government also got K1.6 million each and K1.4 million for Fam. Malawi National Council of Sports pocketed K352,000.

Jangale said they were impressed with the performance of Fellowship Association of Malawi (Fama) which won the bid to outsource gate management.

“We will be happy if they can do the same in the final. After reconciling the leaflets from the sold tickets and the collected sum, we realised that there was a slight overage in terms of money collected at the gates,” Jangale said.


“Some people were rushing into the stadium without getting their tickets after paying. Most of them were late.”

Bullets once again missed out on a chance to win their first ever Standard Bank Knock-Out Cup title after giving away a one-goal lead to go down 2-1 to Civo.

Chiukepo Msowoya gave Bullets the lead in the first half, but Raphael Phiri quick double in the second half sent Civo to the final.

Civo await the winner between Be Forward Wanderers and Blue Eagles, who meet this afternoon at Civo Stadium in another semifinal.

This year’s champions will pocket K10 million in prize money
