Carlsberg Malawi Limited today announced a one-year K15 million (about $38 000) sponsorship deals each for Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers as both giants’ equal deplorable behavior failed to break the sponsorship tie.
Letting the cat out of the bag at Protea Ryalls Hotel in Malawi’s commercial city of Blantyre, Carlsberg chief executive officer Abel Chanje said neither the Nomads nor The Peoples’ Team performed exceptionally in the decisive last season.
“I want to remind you Carlsberg does not condone indiscipline…you could have done far far better. There was no much significance in terms of behaviour and performance for both teams,” Chanje said in Mulanje Room at 1 pm.
Bullets won the 2012 Presidential Cup while Wanderers settled for Standard Bank Knock-Out Trophy. They also shared blemishes in hooliganism and violence. And FAM president Walter Nyamilandu was not amused.
“If Carlsberg wanted to pull out they could have used the deplorable behaviour as an excuse but they have given the two teams a second chance. Their behaviour was insignificant but it was noticeable..please let us behave,” said the man who brokered the deal.
Carlsberg will at the end of the year review the sponsorship which equals the package the company gave last season to both season.
