The cubs have questioned the figure of gate collections raised at Super League Matches involving Nyasa Big Bullets against Moyale Barracks and Nzuni FC played at Mzuzu Stadium over the Weekend.

According to gate Collections summary sheets seen by clubs depicted that k8 730 530 was realized from two games.

The teams feel the amount do not reflect the large turnout  and gate fee hike from k500 to k1000 for open stands and k1000 to k1500 for covered stand.

According to reports, Bullets match against Moyale on Saturday grossed k4 145 000 of which each team got k 833 712.50.

Sunday’s game Mzuni realized k4 585 530 and each team received k 934 760. 72.

Moyale assistant team manager Gerald Kanje said they were expecting more than k8 million from the game.

“It is annoying that the gate collections were lower than what we expected. It is surprising that during the presidential cup semi-finals against Be Forward Wanderers we earned k1 335 000.00 at the same venue, but turnout was small compared to this game,” he said.

Mzuni general secretary Khumbo Kumwenda and Bullets general secretary Kelvin Moyo have also hit on the same claim.

According to Mzuzu City Council chief executive officer Mcloud Kadammanja, the stadium has a seating capacity of 17 000.

However, only 8500 tickets were printed for the two games.

However Sulom general secretary Williams Banda has promised that they are going to investigate into the matter
