Barclays Cup Draws: Champions Buffaloes draw Power Dynamos
The 2016 Barclays Cup was formally launched today (Tuesday) with draws for the preliminary and quarter final rounds conducted at Pamodzi Hotel.
This year’s tournament will have a preliminary knockout round featuring FAZ Division One teams.
Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy, Konkola Blades, Nampundwe and Zesco Victoria Falls are the Division one teams that will play in the knockout round to be staged in Lusaka on 11th September.
Two winners from the preliminary round will qualify for the quarter-finals where they will join MTN FAZ Super League teams Nkana, Green Buffaloes, Zesco United, Zanaco, Power Dynamos and Kabwe Warriors.
The quarter-finals will be hosted at Nkoloma Stadium 17th and 18th September.
Holders Green Buffaloes will match up against Power Dynamos while Zanaco will play against Kabwe Warriors.
Nkana will play the winner of the preliminary round tie between Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy and Zesco Victoria Falls while the winner of the tie between Nampundwe and Konkola Blades will play Zesco United.
The quarter-final match involving Zesco United will be postponed to a later date because the fixture clashes with a CAF Champions League semi-final fixture.
The semi-finals will be hosted at Arthur Davies Stadium on October 15 and the final at Nkoloma on a date to be announced.
