FAZ vice-president Rix Mweemba says football must be used to unite and not divide members. During the FAZ sponsored and FIFA approved administrative and management course held at Wamulungwe Lodge in Kasama, Mweemba said FAZ president Andrew Kamanga was keenly watching progress on the training being handed to all the member clubs across all divisions.
“This seminar is very important, it is for knowledge sharing. We must come out with a little bit additional knowledge. Football should always be a unifying factor, it should bring us together. We should have no enemies in football but opponents,” he said.
And Northern Province football administrator Lennox Chansa says councillors in the region have been eagerly waiting for the course.
Chansa said councillors were very happy with the course that would enhance their capacity to manage the game.
“It is therefore good to note that the clubs here are not only well represented but the club administrators have been waiting for this programme eagerly,” he said. “My appeal is that this programme is meant to help all of us present to build capacity. It is my sincere hope and prayer that at the end of the day all of us would have been equipped with key principles of football administration.”
Northern Province has 38 FAZ member clubs comprising six division one, 16 division two with also 16 in division three.
All 10 provinces have been catered for with six provinces covered so far, which are Southern, Eastern, Western, North Western, Copperbelt and Northern.
