SUPER League side NAPSA Stars football club has resumed training and has camped its team at a lodge in Chongwe.
According to a source, Napsa Stars have been in camp since Sunday.
The source said the team has been training in readiness for the league resumption after consultations between the Football Association of Zambia and the government.
“I am not in Lusaka, I am in camp sorry, I missed your calls in the morning, we were training so I left my phone in the room,” the source said.
Asked how long they would stay in cam, the source indicted that they have not been told when they will be in Lusaka.
“We are not sure when we will be back. Since we came on Sunday, we are training and this afternoon we will be at the swimming pool and here it’s nice, it’s just hidden, it’s in the middle of the bush,” explained the source.
However, FAZ has indicated that it will summon clubs defying the presidential directive not to resume sports activities.
FAZ general secretary Adrian Kashala said the association has not opened any training and camping.
“There is a presidential order that stopped gathering and football training. It’s not about the association, it’s about national regulations and the instructions that have been given out by the Head of State, they have to abide by that and ensure that they observe the health guidelines that have been put in place. We have not opened any training, we have suspended all the trainings and camping for all football activities and whoever has gone against that shall be sanctioned,” said Kashala.
