FAZ has banned all clubs from conducting team training sessions due to the Covid19 pandemic.
Football clubs have been holding limited closed-door training sessions in the midst of the pandemic that had seen the entire FAZ League postponed indefinitely.
“Following measures announced by Republican President His Excellency Edgar Chagwa Lungu around the response to the covid-19 threat the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to advise clubs to ensure that they take steps to help towards combating the pandemic,” acting FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala said.
“FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala has advised clubs to suspend training activities or take preventive measures where they prescribe individualized sessions.
“Kashala says the social distancing measure prohibits regular training for clubs and expects that members will adhere to the directive.
“Meantime players are encourage to embrace to technological tools in engaging in training at individual level and ensure that they keep fit.
“The Football Association of Zambia will advise the members once the situation allows for resumption of normal business.”
Most FAZ Super Divisions have been holding two weekly training sessions for a period of just one hour.
