Eagles will stick to Choma for CAF games

Sports Eagles will stick to Choma for CAF games

Green Eagles say they will play their continental home matches in Choma if they finish in the top four.

Eagles are six games away from a debut continental outing if they can stay in the top four until the Week 35 cut-off.

The Southern Province club is currently third on 54 points, two more than Nkana who occupy the final fourth slot.

Second placed Green Buffaloes and leaders Zesco United are tied on 62 points.

No club from the province has ever played continental football.

“Not at all, our fans cannot watch their team in Lusaka. We have a stadium here so they will have to watch their games from this stadium,” Eagles chairperson Lieutenant Colonel Jim Kafumukache told ZNBC Sports.

“For those of you that have been coming to Choma’s Independence Stadium, the way it is now in terms of infrastructure development, that is not the way it was last season.

“So there is quite a lot we are putting in place and this is not the end, we are receiving overwhelming support from command.”

Third or fourth place finish will see eagles play in the 2018/2019 CAF Confederation Cup that kicks off in November.

  1. Yes why NOT in China, is it because of UPND?
    Listen when Kambwili was PF minister of sports he lay corner Stone for Mongu Stadium, up to now that PF dream was just insult to lozis.
    Now it’s opportunity for PF to show Tongas that there is DIALOGUE by republishing Choma Stadium. Just make a simple nice one, AVIC can do it in a month.


  3. Hotels for who? We have plenty of big lodges for accommodation. Iwe Caf requirements. Who needs to sleep while they are playing?

    • Iwe Banda don’t just yap. Read first.hotels for visiting teams. Caf has rules that a game cannot take place more than 50km from a four star hotel.

  4. Upgrade your stadium first… don’t even understand what benchmark FAZ has in approving some stadia. That Independence stadium in Choma for top flight football? We are jokers
    Another one is Sunset stadium, can you say its for a premier league club with terraces on one section and fans are forced to stand the colonial style ku fence. Standards FAZ use for their approval must be outdated and shallow.

  5. I realy dout if CAF can allow Eagles play their games in Choma cause of standers of stadium the hotels and most important the airport maybe in livingstone if they improve the stadium

  6. Wow it’s our team and we need to watching all the games in here Choma ???? congrats team one southerners ????% saport .
