Pitch shortage hits Big Bullets, Be Forward Wanderers


As the shortage of proper football pitches continues in the country, the situation has worsened with giants, Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers, training on the same pitch.

It was a rare spectacle last week as the arch rivals converged on MDC Stadium in Chilomoni Township, Blantyre for their respective training sessions that were supposed to run concurrently.

Last Thursday, as the first training session for Wanderers was starting at 8 am, Bullets players, whose training sessions was scheduled for 10 am, could be seen trickling in.


Bullets started their training session at 10 am just after Wanderers got out.

A week ago, lower league teams, Namiwawa and Griffin Young Stars, also had an altercation with Side B Socials of Chilomoni and Club 40-40 from Ndirande over the use of the same venue. A fight broke out and both teams were fined.

Recently, teams were stopped from training at Kamuzu Stadium in an effort to preserve the worn-out artificial turf.


The newly-constructed state-of-the art, Bingu National Stadium, in Lilongwe is yet to be opened, a situation that has aggravated the scarcity of pitches in the country.
