The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has taken a significant step to address the vacancy left by the demotion of Buildcon from the National Division One. Following Buildcon’s relegation to the Copperbelt provincial league due to multiple breaches of FIFA and FAZ Statutes pertaining to player transfers and remuneration, FAZ has decided to organize a play-off to determine the deserving team to occupy the vacant spot.
In this upcoming play-off, Chipata United and Livingstone Pirates will take to the field in a highly anticipated clash. Chipata United, who came close to securing promotion during the national play-offs, will be seeking redemption and the chance to prove their capabilities. On the other side, Livingstone Pirates, as the best placed team among the relegated sides, will be determined to demonstrate their resilience and earn their way back into the National Division One.
The play-off event, scheduled to take place in Lusaka this Saturday, is set to captivate football enthusiasts and fans alike. The stakes are undeniably high, as the winner of this contest will seize the opportunity to fill the vacant position in the National Division One. With all eyes on this decisive match, the anticipation for a thrilling and intense competition is palpable.
