Kamuzu Stadium manager Charles Mhango said as of Thursday, they were yet to determine the estimated tickets to be sold for Sunday’s TNM Super League Blantyre derby between Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers.
Mhango said the figure for the number of tickets to be sold will be arrived at after consulting the clubs themselves and Sulom following the reduced capacity of the stadium.
Mhango and Sulom general secretary Williams Banda also said the number of tickets to be sold will be crucial in addressing the issue of security as printing more tickets would be a recipe for disaster.
“Following the cordoning off of other areas, the capacity of the stadium has been reduced greatly and, therefore, the determination on how many tickets should be sold will have to be made after through consultations with all the stakeholders in particular the clubs and Sulom,” said Mhango.
He said the stakeholders were supposed to meet later on Thursday to discuss the matter.
Mhango said following the cordoning off of some of the terraces, the open stands can now accommodate about 16 500 fans.
He also said should there be a huge turnout, some fans will be allowed to watch the action from the northern part of the stadium where there are billboards.
