Nyasa Manufacturing Company says it will invest back money realised from Nyasa Big Bullets merchandise sales.
Even before the official unveiling of the business deal between Nyasa and Bullets, the company has been producing T-shirts that are being sold at K3,500 each.
The company’s representative, Chimwemwe Chikwana, speaking on the sidelines of the Bullets supporters awards on Thursday, said they were encouraged with the sales.
“So far the situation on the ground is okay. Nyasa Big Bullets-branded T-shirts are being sold in designated areas. The response has been quite okay,” he said.
Chikwana could not disclose how much the company has pumped into the project, saying such information will be made available to all the stakeholders at the appropriate time.
“There is nothing to hide once we are set we will release necessary information so that the supporters and other stakeholders should appreciate what is happening on the ground. However, we can assure Bullets supporters that money realised from the merchandise will be pumped back into the team,” he said.
He also said they had worked out a profit sharing arrangement between the two parties.
“But I can’t go into specifics now,” he said.
Chikwana also stated that the company was seeking legal expertise to protect the Bullets brand.
“We don’t want anyone or organisation to sale Bullets merchandise without our consent,” he said.
