The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to inform its members, stakeholders and the public that the Ministry of Health has given the greenlight to have fans at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Zambia and Tunisia.

FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala says following a request to the Ministry of Health to have fans in the stadium for the crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier, the ministry had granted permission for 20, 000 fans to be admitted subject to strict adherence to Covid-19 Guidelines.

“We are pleased to announce that following our engagement with the ministries of health and sport, we have been allowed to admit fans for the September 7, 2021, FIFA World Cup qualifier. This, however, is subject to strict observance of Covid-19 guidelines,” Kashala said.

The 50, 000 capacity Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola will host the FIFA World Cup qualifier between Zambia and Tunisia on September 7, 2021. Zambia will be away to Mauritania on September 3 for their opening Group B match.

Gate charges will be pegged at K300 (VIP), K200 (West Wing), K50 (East Wing) and K100 (South and North Wings).
Tickets will be sold via Computicket in Shoprtite outlets by September 2, 2021.

Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary Dr Kennedy Malama has notified FAZ and advised the Association to liaise with Copperbelt Provincial Health Director DR Robert Zulu in meeting all the Covid-19 guidelines.
