The controversial 2018 Barclays Cup draws has been rescheduled to Wednesday morning at InterContinental Hotel in Lusaka.

The draws were due to be held today, August 21 in Lusaka.

FAZ confirmed the change of dates but gave no further details.

This year’s tournament is marred in controversy following Lusaka Dynamos eyebrow-raising qualification.

Dynamos failed to make the top six cut for FAZ Super Division clubs in their allotted opening 19 games as per tournament rules after finishing 10th on 27 points at the halfway stage.

However, FAZ officials insisted Dynamos had dully qualified from points accrued in games played after Week 19 and that matches played after the mid-way point also counted.

The decision robbed Green Eagles of a Barclays Cup spot who had made the top six on 32 points and were sixth by Week 19.

It was the first time a team had made the cut on that blurred ruling following numerous delays in the tournament eleven year history over unplayed games from the first half of the season.

2017 semifinalists Dynamos will go into the draws alongside 2015 champions Green Buffaloes, two-time winners Power Dynamos, record five-time champions Zesco United and holders Zanaco.

2014 losing finalists Nkana complete the six Super Division clubs in the draws.

Meanwhile, 2015 semifinalists Mufulira Wanderers will represent Zone Two.

Young Green Buffaloes will play from Zone One, demoted side Real Nakonde from Zone Three and Manchester United Zambia Academy from Zone Four and will all be making their tournament debuts.

The lower tier sides will battle each other in the quarterfinal playoffs to meet their top-flight counterparts who are on bye.
