Join the trek to Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in large numbers, urges Kamanga.
Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) President, Andrew Kamanga, is urging fans to converge at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in substantial numbers this Friday to rally behind the Chipolopolo Boys as they embark on their 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification journey, facing Congo Brazzaville in the opening match.
The team regrouped in Ndola today and is scheduled for its initial training session this afternoon. Kamanga, in his weekly update known as the President’s Corner, assured that stringent security measures will be in place to ensure spectators occupy designated areas within the stadium.
Tickets are presently available for purchase at ShopRite Stores nationwide via Computicketing, with prices starting as low as K50.
Addressing the significance of the upcoming match, Kamanga emphasized the hard work invested in securing Levy Mwanawasa Stadium as the venue and called on fans to fill the stadium on Friday to inspire the team to victory. He expressed satisfaction with the positive response from fans in acquiring tickets early.
Kamanga underscored the importance of the World Cup journey for Zambia, highlighting the country’s 59-year history without qualification. Drawing parallels to the closest qualification attempt in 1994, which coincided with the USA as the designated host, he sees 2026, hosted jointly by the USA, Mexico, and Canada, as an opportunity to fulfill the long-awaited qualification dream.
As the team displays high motivation and determination, Kamanga outlined the logistical preparations for the away match against Niger in Morocco on the following Tuesday, while maintaining focus on the impending match against Congo Brazzaville.
Zambia is set to host Congo Brazzaville at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on November 17, followed by a journey to Marrakech for a match against Niger four days later. The kickoff at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Friday is scheduled for 18:00
