FAZ appeal halts Division One play off

By Sports Writer
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has postponed the Division One play-off between Young Green Eagles (Zone 4) and Kansanshi Dynamos (Zone 2) that was set for Nkhosa Stadium in Kafue this weekend.

Yeta Football Club (Zone 4) had appealed the decision the Player Status Committee to award three points to Young Green Eagles following a Week 23 match that found the former to have used two ineligible players.

Yeta Football Club was found guilty of using Oscar Mukelebai and Mulowa Siyanga in place of Mwangala Siyanga and Blessings Mwamba respectively.

FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala announced that the Appeals Committee will adjudicate the matter on Saturday July 6, 2019.

“We received an appeal from Yeta Football Club and have since notified the Appeals Committee to convene and close this matter,” said Kashala.

“We wish to apologize to the clubs involved and the football family for the inconvenience this may have caused. Our desire is to ensure that this matter is concluded amicably.”

The other playoff involving Kabwe Youth Academy and National Assembly FC will go on as scheduled on Saturday 6th July 2019 at President’s Stadium in Kabwe.

This is according to a media statement FAZ Communications Manager Mwazi Chanda.
