Nyasa Big Bullets supporters are preparing to drum up support for the team in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League preliminary round second leg against FC Platinum in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe on Saturday.
Bullets were held to a goalless draw during the first leg at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on July 29.
In an interview yesterday, Bullets supporters committee general secretary Mabvuto Chibambo said it is important for the fans to raise the morale of the players in the away game.
“The fans are required to pay K40 000 each as return bus fare and we will leave on Friday at 5am at [our]
clubhouse in Blantyre.
“We need more supporters to give the team vocal support so that the team should do well,” he said.
Chibambo said the arrangement has received overwhelming response and 100 fans have already paid for the trip.
“We wanted to have two buses, but with the increase in the number of fans intending to travel, we will arrange for a third bus.
“We are encouraged that it’s not only Bullets fans who are paying, but also from other clubs,” he said.
Chibambo also applauded Bullets directors for supporting the initiative by releasing a bus to carry the fans.
Bullets captain John Lanjesi applauded the fans for the move.
“This is good because as people might have noticed, FC Platinum came with their fans who played a big role to motivate their players.
“It will be a big motivation. It is still game on and we stand a better chance to qualify to the next round should we avoid a goalless draw,” he said.
