Zambian Football Stakeholders On Quota System


By Chansa Kunda

Various Football stakeholders have welcomed the decision by FAZ to restrict the number of foreign players in the Zambian Leagues.

The introduction of the Quota system will see all Super League and National Division One clubs register and feature only five foreign players in their squads.

NKana Football Club Chief Executive Officer Mutale Kapwepwe said clubs have been given enough time to regulate the number of foreign players that will be playing for their teams.

Kapwepwe told ZNBC Sports News in an interview that the Club has welcomed the move and that he looks forward to the fruits it will yield in future .

And Power Dynamos -CEO- Happy Munkondya said the introduction of the system has been long over due.

He said this is because his club has always believed in grooming young players to fill the ranks.

Munkondya said the club currently has four foreign players adding that regulating the number to five is doing justice to Zambian football .

And Kabwe warriors Chief Executive Officer Charles Chakatazya said with the introduction of the Quota system , the club will deploy more scouts into the provincial Leagues so that young talent can be identified .

Chakatazya said the move will also improve soccer at national level.

And Football analyst Musonda Chibulu said with the League currently having unregulated foreign players , the move will propel local players to work harder .

Meanwhile, Football analyst Puncherello Chama said the Quota system is a wrong move as it will have a drastic impact on teams that will be taking part in continental football .

Chama said what Clubs and FAZ should work at strengthening grassroots structures as it is the foundation of having a strong National team .

On Saturday, Football Association of Zambia-FAZ- Congress during the Annual General meeting -AGM held in Kabwe unanimously voted to have the Quota system introduced for the 2021/2022 football season.
