Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers have urged their fans to support Nzika Foundation’s cause by turning out in large numbers for their charity match tomorrow.
The People’s Team and the Central Bankers clash in what has been dubbed Ufulu friendly match at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe to raise funds for needy students in public universities.
Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said they feel honoured to take part in such a noble cause.
He said: “There are many students in public colleges that are struggling to raise fees. We are, therefore, asking our fans to patronise the match.”
Chigoga also said their technical panel will use the match to prepare for the TNM Super League second round as well as the FDH Bank Cup.
“It will also give the coaches an opportunity to assess other players apart from regulars,” he said.
Silver company secretary Peter Masiye also said they expect their fans to support the cause.
He said: “We are calling on our supporters to come and cheer their team, thereby supporting Nzika Foundation’s cause. It’s sad to see some students failing to finish their studies due to lack of fees. We, therefore, commend Nzika Foundation for their gesture.
“We also expect the coaches to use this match to assess the players in readiness for the second round.
“So, we are taking the match seriously.”
Nzika Foundation team leader Gift Nankhuni said preparations for the match are at an advanced stage.
Apart from the match, the foundation has also organised a music show at Bingu International Convention Centre to be headlined by Patience Namadingo. Eli Njuchi and Driemo will also perform.
