The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has announced that they are targeting over K15 million (about $50 000) from gate revenue in Saturdayâ€™s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ghana.
The setting is Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
FAM commercial manager Casper Jangale said the association has printed 20 000 tickets that will be sold in Lilongwe and Blantyre today and tomorrow.
â€œWe are working on K15 million (about $50 000) and above, that is our projection,â€ said Jangale.
Meanwhile, the association has announced that entry tickets and Flames replica jerseys will be sold at Lilongwe Community Centre ground, Civo Stadium, Kamuzu Institute for Sports, Kanengo Puma Filling Station, Kawale Total Filling Station, Area 25A PTC shop, Likuni Energem Filling Station, Biwi Triangle Walkers, Area 23 Puma Filling Station, City Centre Puma Filling Station and Area 18 Puma Filling Station.
FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda said in Blantyre, the tickets will be sold at Kamuzu Stadium and Chiwembe Technical Centre.
â€œFAM is, therefore, urging fans to buy the tickets on the given dates as per new Fifa security regulations which discourage sale of tickets on the day of the match,â€ said Nyirenda.
He stressed that nobody will be allowed to watch the game while standing and that gates will be closed once the stadium is full.
Nyirenda also said FAM will provide maximum security in terms of police officers and stewards.
â€œAnd we would like to warn othyola khobwe [fraudsters] that they will be arrested should they be caught indulging in the malpractice.â€
