The 2014 Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) MTN premier league will resume on the 1st March, 2014.
The league will be preceded by the traditional opener of the Samuel “Zoom” Ndhlovu charity shield which will take place on the 1st of February, 2014.
According to the FAZ website monitored by ZANIS sports, the league will begin with week one fixtures across all divisions countrywide.
However, week two fixtures will only be played on March 22, as the weekends of 8th and 15th February are reserved for the CAF Champions League preliminary round involving Nkana and Mbabane
Swallows of Swaziland.
Meanwhile, Nkana, Zesco United, Red Arrows and Nchanga Rangers are the four teams expected to compete in the Samuel “Zoom” Ndhlovu charity shield.
The teams will play double-header semi final games on 1st February and later compete for the charity shield final on Saturday 22nd February, 2014.
Defending champions Power Dynamos and runners up Zanaco will not participate in this year’s Charity shield because they failed to finish among the top four in last year’s FAZ/MTN league.
