BB undecided on venue, Nomads maintain Balaka

Nyasa Big Bullets have said they are yet to decide on the venue for their home matches in the forthcoming season in the absence of Kamuzu and Chilomoni stadiums in Blantyre.

On the other hand, Be Forward Wanderers have said they will maintain Balaka Stadium.

Both teams had earmarked Kamuzu Stadium for their home matches, but government, through the Ministry of Labour, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development recently announced that the stadium will not be ready for use by the time the 2018 football season roars into life next weekend.

The ministry’s spokesperson Christina Mkutumula told Weekend Nation on Tuesday that installation of the new artificial turf will start this month, but could not provide the exact date.

Responding to a question on their alternative home venue, Bullets chief executive officer Fleetwood Haiya yesterday said: “We are yet to decide.”

Chilomoni Stadium could have been the ideal alternative for the People’s Team as was the case last year, but part of its perimeter wall collapsed recently.

On his part, Nomads general secretary Mike Butao said: “Balaka will be our home ground until Kamuzu Stadium is ready.”

Wanderers had a good run at Balaka Stadium last season, where they won all, but one, TNM Super League games. They drew the other with Civil Sporting Club enroute to winning the title.

Azam Tigers have said they will use Mulanje Park as their home venue.
