πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡²πŸ˜· FAZ decide to end Super League after Coronavirus safety disaster

FAZ have announced a call to end the Super League 6 August 2020.

FAZ revealed the decision via a released statement late on Thursday, where Communications Manager  Sydney Mungala, explains alarms bells from the league's partners and national health.

“Following an Executive Committee meeting held on Thursday afternoon, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has decided to bring the 2019/2020 season to early closure.

"The decision to close the league has been necessitated by the concerns that the Association has received from various stakeholders especially the Government through the Ministry of Health particularly from Zambia National Public Health Institute. The recent surge in numbers of the COVID-19 occurrences has put a strain on the health system across the board.

"FAZ has been monitoring the situation and also constantly engaging the authorities on the possibilities as the numbers continue to surge," added the statement.

According to ZamFoot, the season will be ended on matchday 27, where champions will be crowned for both the FAZ MTN Super Division and FAZ Eden University National Division One.

Additionally, the 2020/21 season is marked for 17 October 2020, which will be preceded by the ABSA Cup and Charity Shield.
