TopSports Limited, who organised the Zambezi Soccer Challenge tournament, have said K10 million (about $25 000) was realised from gate revenue on Saturday and Sunday.
TopSports operations manager Kelvin Moyo said generally, they barely managed to break even from their investment.
“I think for a start, it wasn’t bad. There were lessons learnt from the shortfalls and I want to assure the soccer fraternity that next year, we’ll be back better and even bigger,” said Moyo.
Mighty Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda said the organisation of the tournament was okay, “but we are aggrieved with the winner takes all arrangement.
“We played an extra game than Big Bullets and Silver, but we received the same amount which is not fair. That is an area that can be looked into because we spent more money on preparations.”
Zimbabwean top side Caps United won the inaugural tournament after beating Wanderers 1-0 on Sunday.
To qualify for the finals, Caps booted out Silver 4-3 on penalties while the Nomads beat their age-old rivals Big Bullets 4-1 also on penalties on Saturday.
