The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has now extended its match postponements to all League games due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
FAZ’s decision comes 48 hours after this weekend’s 2020 ABSA Cup quarterfinal matches were postponed.
The League was due to resume on April 4 after the FIFA international match break.
“The decision has been arrived at after wide consultation with various stakeholders to safeguard the interests of the players, fans and sponsors,” acting FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala said.
“FAZ will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that they track pronouncements from the Ministry of Health and also the World Health Organization that have stipulated guidelines to combat the threat posed by the COVID-19.
“Members will be informed in due course when the Leagues can resume.”
Twenty five out of 34 league games have so far been played in the FAZ Super Division with Forest Rangers leading by one point on 46 points with a match in hand.
