Sulom has however lamented Kamuzu Stadium closure as the main reason why they failed to collect half a billion, which was the body’s target heading into the just ended season.




  1. I feel sorry for teams to be getting far less than half of the total collections. Infact, it is the teams which should be main players and they should be entrusted to pay for security, ground and other stake holders. They spend allot of time on the field training and playing games. They should be getting 60% or more for their efforts. In fact they are the owners of the business and the rest should be bargaining for their services. The other stake holders should reduce their charges in order to improve football teams operations in the country. This has always been my observation over a period of time. It is time to check on teams expenditures and more will agree with me.
