    Given the popularity of football and the current population of Zambia, this country would have been a football powerhouse if it had been governed properly especially at local government level. Proper planning of residential areas is critical with sport infrastructure carefully designed built and maintained. Sizeable population means there would be no shortage of young people to play the game and competing locally in order to improve standards.


    You never talked of entry fees ,I hope it’s free free. Let it be free because its the first time to watch football match in the year 2020 .
