Misa match grosses K9.2 million


Misa-Malawi realised K9 million in gross gate revenue during a fundraising match involving giants, Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers, at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe on Sunday.

Misa organised the match to raise funds for the construction of an office block in Lilongwe.

Misa-Malawi Chairperson, Tereza Ndanga, said their net earnings were estimated at K5 million.


“Our target for the match was K5 million and we believe that, after deducting expenses, we will get close to our target. Considering the capacity of the stadium and gate charges, we are happy with the gross revenue,” Ndanga said.

Fans paid K1,000 for open stands.

Silver General Secretary, Thabo Chakaka-Nyirenda, said they agreed to contribute to a good cause.


“There was no ground levy and we did not ask for participation fee because we accepted to play for a good cause,” Chakaka-Nyirenda said.

The media body reportedly spent over K2 million on transportation, accommodation and allowances for Bullets.

During the game, Bullets defeated Silver 2-0 as both teams fine-tuned for the TNM Super League, which is slated to kick off on April 14.

Bright Munthali and Nelson Kangunje scored for Bullets, who also defeated Mafco 2-1 on Saturday at Lake Valley Ground.

In another strength-testing match, Be Forward Wanderers were held to a goal-less draw by Chipiku Premier Division side, Dedza Young Soccer Stars, at Dedza Stadium.
