PRESS STATEMENT (For Immediate Release)

Football House, Lusaka
25th February, 2017

AFCON under 20 ticket sales

The Football Association of Zambia –FAZ- is very happy with the ticket sales for the Total U 20 Africa Cup to be hosted by Zambia.

There were numerous concerns on lack of publicity around the tournament from a cross section of society.

These concerns have clearly been overshadowed by complete sale of the Zambia vs Guinea game. This clearly shows that people were well informed and were eager to watch the Zambian game live.

FAZ would also like to take this opportunity to inform the members of the general public that ticket sales for the Zambia vs Guinea game have all been sold out.

We are also aware that there are fans who have been buying tickets in BULK. We are had given a chance to our fans to be able to get a maximum of 01 tickets. However, we have decided to reduce this number to 5 tickets per person due to the fact that people are using this as a way of buying and resalling.

The Football Association of Zambia wishes to advise soccer fans to buy tickets for other fixtures. We are aware that there are some fans who are disappointed that they could not buy tickets for the opening game between Zambia and Guinea.

We wish to advise them to buy tickets for all other matches in advance.

The overwhelming turn happy with the overwhelming support from members of the public ahead of the Total Under-20 Africa Cup to be hosted by Zambia.

Accreditation and ticket purchases across designated places is going smoothly.

FAZ wishes to caution members of the public that as they troop to the stadium to enjoy the matches they should not at any time be in their political regalia.

It should be noted that this is a CAF event and everything around the tournament must be strictly in adherence of CAF/FIFA rules and Statutes.

FAZ also wishes to appeal to members of the public to maintain peace and order during and after the U20 AFCON tournament.

Zambia will be under the spotlight from CAF/FIFA and also to the outside world and our potential to host future tournaments hinges on how we conduct ourselves during and after the tournament.

The Football Association of Zambia is appealing to all football loving supporters to show exemplary behaviour and present the best image to both CAF and Fifa and also to foreign visitors coming to watch the tournament.

We also wish to appeal to our fans to turn up in large number and support the junior Chipolopolo boys.

For and on behalf of:
FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION OF ZAMBIA

    • Desmond, that is bad way of starting a new job at FAZ. Too much writing and too much accusations.
      We only complained about “Dununa” song.
      Congratulations for sales.
      Who has the money from sales? Are we not going to see FAZ dragging Nzala in mud again?

  1. “We are had given a chance to our fans to be able to get a maximum of 01 tickets. However, we have decided to reduce this number to 5 tickets” How is this possible?

  2. Please I hope Kamanga is more transparent about what is collected …why should one person buy a maximum of 5 and not 3? Imagine 2 people can easily get 10 tickets.
    FAZ please show us you have cleaned up from the dark days of GALU and his ticket racketing schemes.

  3. Yaba Boza kupaka in the world i wanted to watch now i cant. But i know i will still buy tickets from the stadium at inflated prizes. i will still buy. I know faz want to get an extra ngwee from me. but its not an issue

  5. 2 weeks ago somebody from the now boring opposition party was telling me that during CAF U20 games,Heroes stadium will be empty because many Lusaka residents hate ECL so they will boycott and that nobody can waste his k20 or K10 plus transport money to and from the stadium to and watch games because the economy is bad.I TOLD THIS DREAMER THAT WAIT AND YOU WILL BE SHOCKED AFTER SEEING HOW FULL HEROES STADIUM WILL BE ON OPENNING DAY ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE’S DARLING ECL IN ATTENDANCE!!MY WORDS HAVE COME TO PASS-ALL TICKETS SOLD OUT FOR GAME ONE!!!i just wonder why the known opposition party keeps on cheating itself that its very popular in Lsk like in its 3.5 provinces when the opposite is the truth!!!TOMORROW IT WILL BE DUNANA REVERSE RELOADED AT HEROES STADIUM!!COME ONE,COME ALL TO SHAME…
