Bullets will compete in the Champions League while Silver registered in the Confederation Cup.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, said the two teams deserve best wishes as they are representing Malawi on the continental stage.
Butao said as Bullets and Silver finalise their preparations for their assignments, the entire Wanderers family has joined hands in wishing them success in the away matches.
“We are wishing both Silver Strikers and Nyasa Big Bullets all the best as they represent the nation in this year’s Caf tournaments. We urge them to get positive results away from home.
“Winning away matches will help the two teams to maximize their chances of proceeding to the next round. This will also help in ensuring high patronage in the return matches. They are our ambassadors and we wish them well. We are behind them all the way,” he said.
Wanderers could be reciprocating to Bullets’ gesture that saw the People’s Team donating K500,000 each to Wanderers and Masters Security ahead of their participation in the two continental club competitions early this year.
“We have nothing to say for now. We will respond when the message reaches us. Maybe it is on the way,” Haiya said.
Bullets are due to leave for Nairobi Sunday while Silver left for the East African country on Thursday where they had stopped over for a friendly against Tusker FC Friday.
The Lilongwe giants are expected to leave for Gabon Saturday.
Silver players will be competing in Africa for the first time as they last registered in Caf competitions over 20 years ago.
But Bullets still have several players who were there when they last participated in the Champions League about four years ago.
