Bullets’ FDH Bank Cup semi-final date confirmed


FCB Nyasa Big Bullets will face Dedza Dynamos in the second semi-final match of the 2023 campaign on 24 September, the Football Association of Malawi confirmed on Thursday.

The match, which was postponed to accommodate the Malawi national team camp ahead of the TotalErnegies Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea this Saturday, will be played at Kamuzu Stadium a few days before our trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo to face TP Mazembe in the second preliminary round of the CAF Champions League.

Bullets defeated Extreme FC 4-2 on penalties following a 1-1 stalemate in regulation time away in Lilongwe on 5 August to book a place in the last four of the FDH Bank Cup against Dedza.

It will be our first meeting with the Central Region-based outfit in a cup competition, but it will be a fourth encounter in all competitions, having faced them three times in the TNM Super League.

In our three league fixtures against Gilbert Chirwa’s side, we won twice and drew once, the latest being the 2-all draw at our base in which we had to come from behind twice to salvage a point against a significantly improved side.

The first semifinal match of the FDH Bank Cup will see our crosstown rivals Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, whom we met at this stage last year, battling it out for a place in the final against Mafco FC at the same venue on 16 September.

After the international break, it will be a busy period for Kalisto Pasuwa’s charges, who, apart from the two-legged CAF Champions League tie against TP Mazembe on 17 September at Bingu National Stadium and away in DRC thirteen days later, will also be involved in the TNM Super League and the FDH Bank Cup fixtures.
