Mighty Mufulira Wanderers promoted


Mighty Mufulira Wanderers on Sunday ended a nine-year FAZ Super League exile after recording a 1-1 draw at Grinaker in Chililabombwe to win promotion back to the topflight league.

Second placed Wanderers who are tied on 64 points with Division One North leaders Forest Rangers have an assailable lead over third placed Kalulushi Modern Stars who have 60 points with a match left in the campaign.

Manfred Chabinga’s side has so far recorded 19 wins, seven draws and seven defeats scoring 38 goals while conceding 20.

Mighty last played in the Super League in 2005.

Wanderers’ promotion is expected to excite thousands of fans at home and abroad.

Meanwhile, Forest bounces back to the Super League after spending just a season in the lower division.

Mighty and Forest have joined Lusaka Dynamos and Nkwazi who have already won promotion from the Southern Division.

  9. As a young man growing up in Ndola, I used to support Kabwe Warriors having starting my professional career in Kabwe. I had a horde of friends in Ndola all supporting Mufulira wanderers and I was an odd man out. Reading about Mufulira Wanderers brings a lot of good and bad memories. Good memories if Kabwe warriors beat them. It happened that most of Mufulira Wanderers supporters also supported Manchester United in UK. I hated Manchester United for this reason to the hilt. I welcome Mufulira Wanderers and the fans to super League.

    • Iwe Jethro I think I know you. because I was and still is a Mighty supporter (no longer a Man U supporter)who hated Warriors because they used to grab the cups we thought were given to us by God. I also hated Devil Devil because they had players who celebrated badly when they scored a goal at Shinde. awe bola yalelowa shilya nshiku
