FAZ suspends all games, Rugby goes ahead

All FAZ Super Division matches which were supposed to be played today have been rescheduled to tomorrow Sunday by the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ).

This is due to the three day period of national mourning for the late Mrs Salome Kapwepwe, widow of the late Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe that ends at 18:00 hours today.

Acting FAZ general secretary Sam Phiri however said only one official match will take place on  Saturday.

Phiri said the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup Group C match between Zesco United and Smouha of Egypt will go ahead as scheduled at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
