Football fans in the country will have to dig deeper in their pockets if current Football Association of Malawi (FAM) President Walter Nyamilandu retains his position as he has disclosed that he will adjust gate charges.
The FAM leader revealed this on Saturday night during Presidential candidates’ debate organised by Zodiak Broadcasting Station at Bingu International Conference Centre in Malawi’s capital, Lilongwe.
Nyamilandu said Super League matches will be pegged at US$3 while for national team matches, football lovers will be coughing about US$5.
“Our soccer matches gate charges are cheap and I will at least put US$3 dollars for Super League matches and US$5 for international matches,” said Nyamilandu.
The incumbent said he want to borrow a leaf from neighboring country, Zimbabwe, where he had a visit recently and had to vomit $20 to watch a football match.
As of Saturday, 1 United States dollar was pegged at MK593.33.
This means that people will be paying about MK1800 for a Super League matches and MK2900 for Flames matches.
Currently, people already dig deep into their pockets to pay MK500 for a Super League match whereas for national team games they pay MK1000.
