FAZ decentralises offices

By Staff Reporter

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has established offices in all the 10 provincial centres as part of its decentralization process.

Gracing the women’s football seminar in Lusaka today, FAZ President Andrew Kamanga said the move was meant to help develop youth and women football in the country.

He disclosed that staff in the provincial offices would include an administrator, a registrar and officers in charge of refereeing.

“FAZ is sensitive to women’s football development, worldwide women football has developed to a point where it now attracts sponsorship as a standalone discipline,” said Kamanga.

“… because of the attention women football has attracted, FIFA has introduced Women’s World Cup league in which two top African teams will be participating. FIFA has apportioned a sponsorship of about US$50, 000 per year to FAZ for Women’s Football development in the country. The money from FIFA will be used specifically for Women’s Football development activities.”
