FAZ president Andrew Kamanga says they will ensure the US$6 million four-year grant from FIFA will be accounted for in its development programmes.
FIFA will stagger the grant to all its member associations until 2022.
“For the 2018 to 2022 cycle they have increased the allocation to each federation to US$6 million which is essentially money that we are going to receive over a period of four years. So in each year we will be receiving US$1.5 million half of which will go into projects, the other half will go into administration and the management of the football development,” Kamanga told delegates last week at the close of the FAZ administers and management workshop held at Government Complex in Lusaka.
“Again we have come up with the audit and compliance committee where we want to make sure that all of you subscribe and ensure that you are accountable and ensure that development and funding from FIFA is able to trickle down to you.
“We did ask some of you to provide bank accounts which you failed, there is no money that is going to come to you from the FIFA forward which is not accounted for and it has to be audited.
“We want to make sure as we go forward all provinces will get funding.”
