Management of Surestream Stadium and BAT Ground have said they would have no problems hosting Super League games in the forthcoming season.
The development comes in the wake of a joint decision made during a recent meeting involving FAM, Sulom and Super League teams to approach authorities of the two facilities to ease the problem of grounds in the Southern Region.
Surestream Academy technical director Peter Mponda said they would have no problems allowing Sulom and FAM to use the stadium for competitive matches provided they come up with proper arrangements.
“We could come up with an arrangement to allow them to use the stadium on condition that it should be one game per weekend and that the match should not be of high-risk to the facility.
“I am sure there would be no problem with that and we are ready to meet authorities from FAM and Sulom over the issue,” said Mponda.
Kamuzu Stadium manager Charles Mhango, who also oversees the management of BAT Ground, also hinted that he does not foresee any problems.
“Of course, for that to happen then Sulom and FAM would have to go through the Ministry [of Youth and Sports] for approval, but I do not foresee any problems as long as they do not involve big teams such as Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers due to limited space.
“Otherwise, the surface is more or less the same like that of Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo and Balaka Stadium. So, there should be no problems,” said Mhango.
Super League teams based in the Southern Region requested FAM and Sulom to pursue the issue of venues, saying they spent a lot on costs last season by travelling to play outside the city following the closure of Kamuzu Stadium.
