Bingu National Stadium (BNS) and Kamuzu Barracks (KB) officials have contradicted each other on the TNM Super League defending champions’ claim that the Chinese-built stadium is their home ground.

KB Team Manager, Francis Shaba, said his club entered into a formal agreement with BNS officials to use the stadium for its home games this season.

“We will be using BNS as our home ground. Nothing has changed from our earlier announcement. We already discussed with the stadium officials and the paperwork was done,” Shaba explained.

He said the club is only waiting for Super League of Malawi to start fixing their games at the facility.

Shaba said he expects the team’s next game to be played at BNS, claiming that the Super League launch match against Wanderers would have been played there had it not been for other activities that were booked earlier.

“We have so far played three games and two were away. You will be seeing us play at BNS anytime as per our agreement with ground owners. We played Wanderers at Civo because BNS was booked for other activities on the day,” Shaba said.

He also said Civo Stadium will be the soldiers’ alternative venue.

But BNS Manager, Eric Ning’ang’a denied ever entering into the said agreement and stated that the stadium is open to any team which meets the required conditions.

“I am not aware of any formal agreement with KB on the use of BNS. What I know is that just like other teams, KB came to us asking if they can be using the stadium for their games and not to book it as their home ground. The stadium is open to any team that meets our conditions. So far, there is no agreement with any team on using BNS as their home ground,” said Ning’anga.

BNS is the country’s biggest and most sophisticated match venue with a capacity of more than 40,000.

The match venue has already hosted several high-profile local and international matches, with the recent Airtel Top Eight Cup final match grossing a record K52 million in revenue.
