Nyasa Big Bullets Buy Blantyre Zero Football Club
Nyasa Big Bullets’ quest for a third successive CAF Champions League participation has taken a new twist after the club acquired ownership of one of the country’s renowned and established women's football outfits, Blantyre Zero Football Club.
Club Chief Executive Officer, Sugzo Augustine Nyirenda, in a statement issued on Thursday, said “the acquisition of the Southern Region Women Football champions demonstrates the club’s commitment towards continued participation in the CAF Champions League and laying a strong foundation for a complete and well-established football powerhouse in the continent.”
Nyirenda says the team, now called Nyasa Big Bullets Women Football Team, will have all the necessary support, both financial and technical to enable it to compete well at the national level.
The acquisition of Blantyre Zero Football Club brings the number of teams under Nyasa Manufacturing Company’s fold to four after Nyasa Big Bullets senior, Nyasa Big Bullets Reserve, and Nyasa Big Bullets Youth.
Meanwhile, National Women Football Association president, Sugzo Ngwira, says sound sponsorship is a key motivating factor for the development of the sport.
Silver Strikers Football Club, who also expressed interest to participate in the Confederations Cup, has also been linked with reports of adopting Lilongwe-based outfit, Skippers FC to meet the demand by CAF.
