Big Bullets clubhouse that was closed for renovations over a month ago, has reopened.
The club, located in Mandala, has been refurbished and adorned with the clubâ€™s red and white colours as well as their sponsor, Carlsberg Malawi, colours.
Bullets chairperson Malinda Chinyama said it is a relief that the clubhouse is now operational.
â€œWe were losing between K250 000 [about $833] and K300 000 [about $1 000] a week in revenue. Now that it has been patched up, we are back in business,â€ said Chinyama.Â
The Bullets head also said plans are underway to partner Carlsberg Malawi in the establishment of a commercial department within the club with the aim of running joint promotions.
He also said now that the renovations are through, the teamâ€™s executive committee will meet soon to agree on the date for the bash to celebrate their Presidential Cup glory.
Bullets are in the long-term plan to have their own clubhouse. The team has already applied to Malawi Housing Corporation for the place which used to be Shelter Club at Kwacha.
Carlsberg senior brands manager [alcoholics] Twikale Chirwa confirmed that they are going into business partnership with Bullets apart from being their sponsor.
â€œWe have been blown away by the fan base of the two clubs [Bullets and Mighty Wanderers], in particular Bullets.
â€œBig Bullets is a big brand with a lot of potential which can be exploited.
â€œSo, as Carlsberg, we are looking at affordable replica jerseys and also partnering them in the establishment of a commercial department within the club which will run joint promotions with us,â€ said Chirwa.
