FAZ TO MEET CLUBS ON CAF OCTOBER 15 DEADLINE
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has called for a stakeholders’ meeting to chart the way forward on the October 15 deadline given by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to submit the four representatives from Zambia.
FAZ will meet club representatives from the Super Division clubs at Golden Peacock this Friday at which the matters surrounding the continental envoys will be discussed.
CAF has informed its members of the revised calendar that will see the continental competitions staged from August through to May, following the same schedule as most of the major African leagues and also that of the European club competitions.
The current Champions League and African Confederation Cup are the last to be staged within a calendar year.
The Zambian Super League traditionally ends in November but will have to be staged in conformity with the new CAF calendar next year.
