TNM Super League gate revenue jumped from K182 million to K314 million last season, representing a 72 percent rise.
The figures are contained in the Activity Report which Super League of Malawi (Sulom) general secretary Williams Banda presented at the annual general meeting (AGM) held in Lilongwe on Saturday.
The funds, the report shows, were shared among Football Association of Malawi (FAM) (K22.1 million) Sulom (K22.7 million), Malawi National Council of Sports ( around K10.8 million).
Ground levy totalled K56.4 million while security personnel, cashiers, stewards and other match day workers shared K8. 7 million.
The 15 clubs got K113 million with Nyasa Big Bullets getting the lion’s share of K28.9 million, Be Forward Wanderers followed on K23. 7 million while Silver Strikers came third with K10 million earnings.
At the bottom of the recipients are Airborne Rangers who received K2.4 million.
Bullets acting general secretary Kelvin Moyo said the figures further proved that the People’s Team is the most followed on the local scene.
“The interpretation is simple; we are the club with the biggest fan base. We appreciate the support we get from the fans and we encourage them to continue patronising our games,” he said.
Sulom treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda said the rise in gate revenue is a result of prudent gate management which the body is enforcing.
“As you might be aware recently you have heard that some people have been arrested on suspicion of having stolen gate collections. All this is down to the system,” he said.
