Who We Are?

Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club (NBBFC) was formed in 1967 by a group of football players who split from Mighty Wanderers in Blantyre. The original name was Blantyre City Stars with a certain level of support from Blantyre City Council before the club managed to source sponsorship from Bata Shoe Company and was renamed to Bata Bullets. Bata Shoe Company bankrolled the club for nearly a quarter of a century until the petroleum firm —TOTAL Malawi stepped in during the early 1990s.

In 2003, the then President of Malawi Dr. Bakili Muluzi adopted the team and renamed it Bakili Bullets. It was during this period that the team enjoyed one of its glamorous periods, reaching the lucrative group stages of the CAF Champions League in 2004. After Dr. Muluzi’s sponsorship receded, CIFU Group came in, but their stay was short-lived with the club going through a spell without a serious sponsor until 2016, when the cigarette firm, Nyasa Manufacturing Company, came in and later became a major shareholder in a newly created commercial football club. The club was renamed Nyasa Big Bullets and it remains the same to this date.

The new organization structure has addressed most of the previous shortfalls, which was lack of ownership, which entailed that no one was interested in investing money in the club knowing so well that the entity belonged to everyone, hence a serious risk to any form of individual investment. The new club owners — Nyasa Manufacturing Company have invested massively for the past 5 years pumping over MK400 million each year and this has allowed the club to win the Super League for three consecutive years and has been participating in each of the CAF Championship League competition since 2017.
