“The team is focussed and busy Training, looking forward to the game on Saturday against Zanaco in the ABA competition. The boys are highly motivated to deliver. Our eyes are on the cup. We believe this is our time to get the ABSA Cup. This is the first time we have come this close and we will surely finish strong,” says Col Jim Kafumukache.
If there is a way to show how committed Green Eagles is to this cause is the organization of making sure their fans watch the game. Something which the team puts as a priority.

“The Green Eagles support Base is growing everyday day throughout the country. I am happy to mention that many people across the nation are giving us support. We are committed to mobilizing as many supporters as possible to travel to Lusaka to give support to the Team..”
