Mweemba revealed that some of the proposed measures include playing several matches at centralized venues and disinfecting facilities.

“If the worst comes to the worst come mid July we should be starting the league. There will be two weeks of training before we say game on,” Mweemba said.

Meanwhile, Minister of Sports Emmanuel Mulenga said the Ministry of Health will have the final say on the pending resumption of football.

“It is Ministry of Health to advise that yes they (FAZ) can go ahead,” Mulenga said.
