Woes worsen for league club, Buildcon, as FAZ suspends participation from Division One


Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has with immediate effect suspended National Division One side Buildcon from the league citing various breaches of FAZ and FIFA statutes.

In a statement by FAZ media manager, Sydney Mungala, on Friday, FAZ General Secretary, Reuben Kamanga, said Buildcon had apart from multiple sanctions imposed on them been deregistered from the FIFA registration system.

Buildcon are said to be serving a transfer ban from FIFA and are currently suspended from the registration system which makes it impossible for them to fulfil their league and legal obligations.

Buildcon were relegated to the National Division One league after the 2022/23 season.

Kamanga stated that in respect of the FAZ constitution, Buildcon was in breach of Article 13 and 18 that stipulates some of their member obligations.

He said FAZ would advise in due course whether there would be a replacement for Buildcon.

“We are ready for the 2023/24 season which kicks off on August 19, but we expect a lot more from our clubs in terms of fulfilling club licensing guidelines. We also wish to remind the membership that FAZ will act sternly on any acts of hooliganism at stadia,” he said.

The 2023/24 season kicks off on August 12 with Power Dynamos playing Forest Rangers in the Carling Black Label Charity Shield match at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
