The Zambia Rugby Union (ZRU) says the suspended National Rugby League will resume on 28th August 2021.
ZRU suspended all league games on 17 June 2021 after Covid-19 cases and deaths increased in the country.
ZRU head of Competition Enock Shikabeta said clubs should immediately start training in readiness for the games.
‘Further be guided that we will be sharing guidelines from the medical committee prior to resumption of games,’ Shikabeta said.
‘Note that league games will start on 28 August with week 9 games and end on 2 October 2021, and as such clubs are directed to resume training in preparation for resumption of games,’ he said.
Defending champions Red Arrows are leading the table with 32 points as at Week 8.
