The Zambia Sports Fans Association (ZSFA) has urged soccer fans to turn up in big numbers and support Nkana Football Club as it faces KCCA of Uganda tomorrow in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) champions league.
And the venue for the Nkana versus KCCA match has been moved from Nkana stadium to Arthur Davies due to a water logged pitch at Nkana.
ZSFA patron Peter Makembo told ZANIS in an interview in Lusaka today that tomorrow’s game against KCCA should not be treated as a Nkana game but as a national game.
Pastor Makembo has since called on Nkana not to worry of the intimidating media attacks from the KCCA coach George Nsimbe.
During the week, coach Nsimbe continued to issue remarks that his side will shock Nkana in tomorrow’s match citing the 2 nil away win to El Merrek in Khartoum on February 8 as a testimony.
But Nkana coach Masauso Mwale refused to be drawn in a war of words with the KCCA coach.
Pastor Makembo urged the team to remain united and focused and ensure that they beat KCCA with a convincing margin.
And the heavy rains that poured in Kitwe over the week have forced Nkana to change the venue to Arthur Davies stadium.
Nkana secretary Ken Mwansa has told mtnfootball.com that the heavy rains have left the pitch saturated and the situation worsened by the teams decision to train on the same pitch.
Mwansa said the decision was made yesterday after a meeting with Power Dynamos management.
He said this development has already been communicated to both FAZ and CAF.
