New FIFA president Gianni Infantino has accepted an invitation to visit Zambia.
Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Andrew Kamanga said Infantino accepted the invitation to visit Zambia in 2018 after they met at the ongoing FIFA Congress in Mexico City that began on May 11 to May 14.
Kamanga said Infantino has accepted to visit Zambia during the 25th anniversary of the 1993 Gabon disaster next April.
“We are delighted that the FIFA president has accepted my invitation to come to Zambia in 2018 after we had fruitful discussions with him on various developmental issues,” Kamanga told FAZ media.
“He has expressed confidence in our leadership and wants Zambia to succeed with its football development programmes.
“Fifa has further agreed to send a legal team to help us revise our constitution in line with their directive for us to reduce the FAZ electoral college by 30th September.
“Other than that, we also discussed the possible funding of our reconvened annual general meeting later this year and there has been a willingness by Fifa to help.”
