Surestream lost 3-1 in an entertaining game in which the Super League rookies threatened the defending champions especially in the first half.

Super League of Malawi Treasurer Tiya-Somba Banda said the two teams shared K1.5 million while the rest was shared among cashiers, ground owners, security personnel.

But Somba said the amount raised had fallen short of the expectation considering a good number of people who turned out for the match.

“The game raised K6 million but I think there’s more that could be done to tighten security at the gates otherwise the amount is not a true reflection of the patronage,” he said.

Soccer analyst Kelvin Moyo said it was not surprising that the game attracted a good patronage because Surestream are a good team to watch.

“Surestream is currently a good brand of football and this will make them to attract a good number of supporters especially against big teams,” Moyo said.

In a related development Tiya Somba Banda said not all Surestream Academy’s first four games were home games.

“It’s not true Surestream are playing all their first games at home because some of the games are away games only that they are being played in Blantyre,” Tiya Somba Banda said.

Surestream started the campaign against Blue Eagles and they lost 3-1 last week.
