Crowd pullers Nyasa Big Bullets are scheduled to award outstanding players in the 2022 season on December 23 at Comesa Hall in Blantyre.
Bullets Chief Administrative Officer Albert Chigoga said the awards ceremony will be a red carpet and black tie event.
“We want to say thank you to our stars under the theme ‘Awarding the Excellence of Our Athletes’. Ordinarily, our supporters would come to such an event dressed in club colours. But things will be different during this ceremony. We want them to put be in formal attire.
“We are, therefore, calling upon the entire sports fraternity to come and witness this great event. This is one way of motivating our players to continue performing well. They have done well in the 2022 season and we want them to continue delivering in 2023,” Chigoga said.
He said each award category will have three nominees to be voted for by fans.
“To vote for their favourite player, the fans should send a keyword representing each category together with the name of their preferred choice to our 441 mobile platform. We will also honour some of our legends during this ceremony by giving them certificates of recognition for their impeccable contributions to the club,” Chigoga said.
He asked the corporate world to partner them by buying tables for 10 at K500,000, K200,000 and K100,000 each for platinum, gold and silver, respectively.
“For individual entries, each ticket is being sold at K50,000 each for platinum while gold is at K20,000. We also have silver tickets that are going at K10,000 each,” Chigoga said.
According to Bullets’ website, advance tickets for the annual gala are being sold at Nyasa Big Bullets offices, Energem Filling Station Ndirande, Chigos Cuisine at Kameza, Jack Shoppers in Blantyre and Limbe Total Filling Station.
The club will give out the Player-of-the-Season award to the best performing player in the 2022 season according to the supporters’ choice.
There will also be award categories of goalkeeper-of-the-season, defender-of-the-season, midfielder-of-the-season, striker-of-the-season and discovery-of-the-season.
