Big Bullets FC has opened an account with NBS Bank from which they are hoping to raise K10 million towards their CAF Champions League preliminary round first leg assignment against Club Fomboni in Comoros Islands.
Bullets general secretary Harold Fote said the account was opened at the bank’s Blantyre Branch on Wednesday afternoon and the number is 0020981070012.
“In the short term, the target is to raise K10 million within the next two weeks to go towards the trip to Comoros Islands, but in the long-term we are looking at raising K100 million.
“In essence, we are projecting that if an estimated 1 million fans and well-wishers can deposit K100 each then it would translate to K100 million. We are therefore appealing to all our supporters and well-wishers to contribute the little they can,” said Fote.
He claimed that through zonal supporters’ committees, Facebook page and the media, they have already started mobilising fans and well-wishers to assist towards the cause.
Asked what transparent measures they have put in place to ensure accountability, Fote said the funds will not be abused as the account has four signitories—club chairperson , treasurer, main supporters committee chairperson and trustees chairperson.
Bullets need about K30 million for their Comoros Islands foray. The first leg is slated for February 14.
