To curb gate ticketing fraud, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) has introduced security features called Tamper Evident Security Holograms—an extra layer of security—on entry tickets.
The special tickets are on sale ahead of today’s African Nations Championship (Chan) match between Malawi’s Flames and Madagascar.
The second leg, first round qualifying match is scheduled for Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
Of late, there have been concerns over gate ticketing fraud after some fans were caught selling fake tickets during the recent Chifundo Charity Shield at Civo Stadium.
Despite the setback, Fam Marketing and Commercial Director, Limbani Matola, is confident that the new security features will minimise fraud.
“We have engaged FDH Bank and the government auditors on this. We are working very closely with the printers to make sure that there are no flaws. Every stage has been duly audited and certified,” Matola said.
Fam General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, has since challenged the technical panel and the players to beat Madagascar.
Malawi lost the first leg match 0-1 in Madagascar.
