Kamuzu Stadium management has clarified on Nyasa Big Bullets’ training at the Blantyre facility on Tuesday, weeks after clubs’ usage of the venue was suspended.
Bullets also trained at the stadium prior to their TNM Super League 1-0 victory over rivals, Be Forward Wanderers, on Saturday.
Recently, the stadium’s management banned the two giants from using the venue in a move aimed at preserving the worn-out artificial turf.
However, Kamuzu Stadium Manager, Ambilike Mwaungulu, said Bullets had four training sessions’ arrears when the ban came into effect.
“When we decided to impose the ban, Bullets had already made an advance payment for some days. As a result, we agreed that whenever they needed to train at Kamuzu Stadium, they should notify us in advance,” he said.
Mwaungulu said in respect of the agreement, the People’s Team trained before the derby and on Tuesday.
Commenting on the supporters that went beyond the cordoned-off terraces during the derby, Mwaungulu said stakeholders would meet on how best to deal with the situation.
“It does not happen often. A small section of the supporters went beyond the limit. We need to work jointly to stop that habit. Otherwise, the supporters must also be responsible,” he said.
