Wedson Impressed With Konkola Stadium Turnout


Zesco United coach Wedson Nyirenda says he was excited to see a huge turnout of fans at Konkola Stadium on Sunday during their Week 4 game away to Konkola Blades.

Konkola was two-thirds full as the home fans roared on the Chililabombwe club against the current league leaders despite Blades losing 2-1.

“I liked that crowd if you had a crowd like that shows the results of us winning the Africa Cup,” Nyirenda said.

“The fans again have rediscovered their heart for the game. They want to see our local stars before they see them at the national level.

“It is now up to FAZ to take advantage of this and market the game.”

Nyirenda also hoped that the enthusiasm to watch local football will be constant this season.

“We have started well this year and I hope we will stop bickering. People will differ on opinions but we move on,” Nyirenda said.

“You can see that everyone has big expectations for Zambian football. You can see how Power Dynamos were humiliated in Congo, the whole nation was humiliated and the same thing with Red Arrows we were humiliated.”


  1. I agree with you Wedson, FAZ needs to take advantage of the AFCON victory and advertise the local. We need to strike when the iron is still hot.

  2. Yes, FAZ needs to serious market the local league. With more fans in the stadia, the clubs will get more money and hence be able to motivate players.

  3. Some players are not used to large crowds,hence when that begins from club level,they will not find difficuties when called for natoinal dutis,congrates fans lets keep on supporting our local league.

  4. Thanks for the a new challenge you have relaeved in your post. One thing I want to reply to is that FSBO connections are built over time. By presenting yourself to the owners the first saturday their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to masses get started calling on Monday, you produce a good interconnection. By giving them methods, educational products, free reports, and forms, you become an ally. Through a personal interest in them and also their circumstances, you create a solid connection that, in many cases, pays off if the owners decide to go with a real estate agent they know and trust preferably you actually.
