THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has closed the 2019/2020 league season following the recent surge in numbers of the covid-19 cases.

FAZ Communications Manager Sydney Mungala has revealed in a statement that the association been monitoring the situation and also constantly engaging the authorities on the possibilities as the numbers continue to surge.

Mungala said delays in securing test appointments and results by most of the clubs in the league after being tested has been one of the major challenges as some matches could not be played due to the inability of clubs to produce results when called upon to do so.

Mungala said despite signing up to observe the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health, the compliance levels by most of the clubs has also not been satisfactory.

“Among the breaches noted by ZNPHI from our clubs were failure to manage the isolation of players and officials who tested positive, unrestricted access to camping sites, failure to observe social distancing and lack of sanitizers and disinfectants at designated places, ” said Mungala.

“Arising from the following challenges and in view of the high incidents of new covid-19 cases the FAZ executive has been left with no choice but to bring the league to an early closure.”
