TNM Super League gate revenue reaches K916 million

By Chisomo Phiri

Super League of Malawi (SULOM) has announced that TNM Super League gate revenue has almost doubled to at least K916 million from the previous season’s K588 million.

SULOM President Fleetwood Haiya disclosed this at a press briefing held at SULOM Offices in Blantyre yesterday.

Haiya attributed the rise in revenue collected to strict fiscal measures imposed on ticket and gate management and efforts to curb gate fraud among others.

He then commended sponsors for making the just-ended season a success.

The SULOM boss said he will negotiate with potential sponsors for a hike in league sponsorship and the Man of the Match award, considering the devaluation of the local currency.

Haiya also asked the government to recognize sponsors in their taxes to woo more of them to come on board.

Last Sunday, Haiya, who is also vying for Football Association of Malawi’s presidency on December 16 polls, said the association would hike club subvention to K20 million from K10 million per team during the 2024 season.

In 2022, SULOM collected gate revenue of about K600 million.
