Mighty Be Forward Wanderers have committed to paying transfer fee balance for players from Azam Tigers through their share of Super League games gate collections.
The Nomads’ general secretary Mike Butao said they had agreed to pay at least K1 million every month to Tigers through gate revenue to settle a balance of K6 million for players such as Kondwani Lufeyo, Mike Kaziputa and Kondwani Kumwenda.
“What has happened is that we have committed a certain amount from our gate collections to be paid to Tigers,” Butao said.
“We are no longer getting the gate collections. What is happening is that Sulom gets the money and pays Tigers and gives us the balance.”
The arrangement is for Super League games gate collection only.
“But still we paid Tigers K300 000 out of the K750 000 we got from the Standard Bank Knockout quarter-final match against Red Lions,” Butao said.
“We want to finish paying all the outstanding debts we owe anybody.”
Wanderers promised to pay the balance by the end of first-round, a thing that never happened, prompting Azam Tigers to complain to Sulom.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary Williams Banda confirmed that they ordered Wanderers to pay the balance or risk having the players barred from playing.
“Tigers wanted the players to be deregistered, but the issue is now sorted out,” Banda said.
Tigers chairperson Sydney Chikoti said the Kau Kau boys were satisfied with the arrangement.
“The issue is indeed resolved,” Chikoti said on Tuesday.
