Nyasa big Bullets have applied to Super league of Malawi (Sulom) to change its name to NMC Big Bullets.
The people’s team has driven the new name from the prefix of their Sponsors Nyasa manufacturing Company (NMC).
The acting general secretary of the club, Kelvin Moyo said that they want to formalize their name change in the season 2016 since Sulom records still show that their official name is Big Bullets.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda confirmed that they have received a letter from Bullets asked for name change.
“Changing team name is indeed applicable once new sponsors come in just as Mighty Wanderers did when they found sponsor Be Forward.
“We have since responded to them on what procedures to follow for them to change name,” said Banda.
One of the requirements which Sulom has given Bullets is the payment of a K 200 000 fee to be used for changing the team’s logo.
