2. Ticket Pricing
The tickets have been competitively priced to enable a lot of Malawians to watch and support their beloved national team, the Flames, playing at home for the first time since November 2019.

4. Corporate Clients
FAM has made special arrangements for corporate boxes to be centrally managed at Bingu National Stadium. This approach will give executive clients convenience and easy access to customise and organise corporate boxes to their liking.
5. Flames Fan Engagement
Through Town storming activations, the Flames Moto crew will storm Lilongwe townships with exciting promotions to get the fans prepared, geared, and switched on to watch the Flames play Ethiopia at Bingu National Stadium on 5th June.
6. Flames Moto Connect
FAM has launched a programme called ‘Flames Moto Connect’ targeting school going youth to inspire national patriotism, unity, teamwork, and active sportsmanship. Under this programme, we have invited 20 schools targeting 2,000 learners to watch the Flames match for free. We appreciate these learners are the core of Flames fan base and some of them are future Flames players. It is therefore important that they get exposed and inspired to achieve their dreams at a tender age.
7. Family Stand
FAM has designated two stands at Bingu National Stadium, stands E4 and E5 as ‘Family Stands’. These stands are reserved for family viewing. Some stewards and security officers will be specifically allocated to these stands thereby guaranteeing families to feel safe and secure to bring their children to the stadium. Our aim is to encourage family bonding, interaction and entertainment using the game of football.
8. Replica Jerseys Sales Promotion
FAM is running a special sales promotion of Flames Replica Jerseys to encourage fans to paint Bingu National Stadium RED by putting on Flames jersey in support of the team. For each purchase of the Flames jersey, the fans will be given a complimentary standard ticket for the Malawi v Ethiopia match. The promotion runs from 21st May to 4th June 2022.
FAM is upgrading the matchday experience for the fans as one way of celebrating the Flames playing at home and that Malawi is now hosting other countries to play their home matches at Bingu National Stadium thereby profiling the image of the country and improving our game.
