Zanaco face Zesco in BP Top 8 quarterfinals


Defending BP Top 8 champions Zanaco have been drawn against Zesco United in the quarterfinal of this years tournament that kicks off this Saturday, September 22.

Zanaco, who are also the outgoing league champions travel to Ndola to face heir-apparent Zesco, who currently lead the Faz Premier League table and are strong favorites for the top-flight crown this year.

In the rest of the quarterfinal draws made Tuesday morning at the Holiday Inn in Lusaka, 2005 winners and 7-time BP Top 8 champions Kabwe Warriors host 2-time champions Power Dynamos at Railway Grounds in Kabwe.

Winners of the Zesco-Zanaco and Warriors-Power quarterfinals will face-off in another potentially explosive semifinal clash on October 20.

And in the other quarterfinal draws, 5-time champions Green Buffaloes will travel to relegation-threatened Nakambala Leopards in Mazabuka.

5-time BP Top Eight losing finalists Konkola Blades who have yet to win the cup in its 38-year history host Forest Rangers.

The winner of the Blades-Rangers quarterfinal game will face either Buffaloes or Nakambala in the last four next month.

Semifinal matches will be played at Nchanga stadium in Chingola and Nkoloma stadium in Lusaka while the final will take place on November 10 at Woodlands stadium in Lusaka.


  1. I wish Nkana was eligible for the BP Top 8!
    Nga twalibanaya bamukuta just like we have been doing in the Backlays Cup and Coca Cola Cup. Also watch out for Kalampa in the Mosi Cup. We are play this saturday.

    Also, the good news for us is that will, from the begining of next season begin playing pa Chilata!! The 14 month ban will(has) be lifted by FAZ so that it only cover this season.

    Long Live Nkana FC
