Edward Chilufya graces Women’s Christmas tournament in Kasama

Sweden based Chipolopolo Winger Edward Chilufya is still in the country for holidays and was yesterday part of the crowd that witnessed the Chipili Chomba Women Christmas Cup Tournament final at Kasama Sports Stadium!

Edward Chilufya later joined FAZ Northern Province Executive led by Chairperson Mwansa Kapyanga and Women’s Representative Ms. Beauty Namwawa together with soccer fans on Saturday 26th December to support the Women who were competing in the Chipili Chomba tournament and encouraged them to be hopeful and focused.

Mpaji Girls were the winners via a 4-3 scoreline on post-match penalties after playing to a 2-2 draw in regulation time against Pride Stars.

It was all smiles from the girls after seeing ‘Tiger’ who they look up to for inspiration having come from Mphande Youth to help Zambia U-20 win the 2017 AFCON and reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup then penning a professional deal with Djurgadens IF in Sweden.

FAZ Northern Province Chairperson Mwansa Kapyanga has confirmed that plans are currently underway to have a women’s league in the northern province.

“Yes, apparently they are 12 women’s teams in the region and we have plans to have a women’s league come next year,” Kapyanga told the ZamFoot Crew.

Chilufya sponsored his own Christmas tournament on the men’s side of things won by Chintelelwe.

Should Northern Province form a Provincial Women’s League they will join Lusaka, North Western, Central Province, Copperbelt, and Eastern Province as the Provinces with Women’s leagues while Southern Province has District Women’s Leagues.

The National Women’s League is also expected to launch early next year and  twelve teams have confirmed participation.
