City, Blades, Nakonde & AM Welding win promotion
City of Lusaka, Konkola Blades, Real Nakonde and AM Welding football clubs have been promoted to the 2017 MTN FAZ Super League after finishing as champions in their respective FAZ Division One Zones.
FAZ Division One Zone One champions City of Lusaka return to the top flight for the first time since their demotion in 2010.
Zone Two champions Konkola Blades won promotion at first attempt following their demotion a season ago while Real Nakonde and AM Welding from Zones Three and Four respectively will be debutants.
Real Nakonde will become the first side from Muchinga Province to play in the Super League.
This year Lumwana Radiants became the first team from North Western Province to play in the Super League following their promotion last year from the defunct FAZ Division One North League.
While the four teams which have been promoted are now known, the line-up of demoted teams is not yet complete in the Super League where Mufulira Blackpool are the only side whose relegation has been confirmed.
With survival prospects out of their hands, Lusaka Tigers’ demotion could be confirmed if they fail to win their next match. Lusaka Dynamos and Mufulira Wanderers are third and fourth from bottom and still harbour hopes of survival but only if they win their respective matches in the run in.
