Nyasa Big Bullets football club will face Be Forward Wanderers football club on Sunday in a friendly fundraising match organised by Central Region Football Association (CRFA) at the kasungu stadium.
CRFA has organised the match to raise funds to console families of Make sure pirates players who died after the team was involved in an accident on their way to Mchinji to play against St Gabriel football club.
The association vice general secretary Antonio Manda said they expect to raise k20 million and has asked people from the central region to support them.
On their part, Wanderers football club team manager Victor Maunde has promised to take all reliable players on their trip to Kasungu.
“We accepted to help CRFA with what they want to do and we will travel with all our reliable players as there is nothing like a friendly match when these two sides meet,” he said.
Maunde further said the match will give chance to wanderers supporters in the central region to bid farewell to Joseph Kamwendo who is retiring from active football.
“Joseph Kamwendo will lead the team on the day as he is retiring from active football and we have to celebrate all he has contributed to the team. So we expect all our central region supporters to come in large numbers and bid fair well to him”, said Maunde.
On the day both teams will wear t-shirts of former Make sure Pirates players who died because of the accident. The nomads will put on blue t-shirts with a picture of Douglas Mkolongo while the 2018 TNM super league champions will wear red t-shirts with a picture of Blessings Mhango.
