THE Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Andrew Kamanga and Ponga Liwewe lead administration has moved the Lusaka Dynamos vs Green Buffaloes game, which was scheduled for Woodlands Stadium on Sunday 22nd April 2018 at 15:00hrs to Sunset Stadium.

This was communicated in a letter issued to Lusaka Dynamos secretariat this morning and made available to the media team.

The game was originally scheduled for Heroes Stadium which is the official home of Lusaka Dynamos, but FAZ moved it to Woodlands to accommodate the beaming live of the match on SuperSport Sport 9. In a surprising twist, the football mother body has at the 11th hour moved the match to Sunset Stadium but has not given reasons.

“As Lusaka Dynamos, we wish to apologise to our fans, sponsors and other stakeholders for the inconveniences caused by these changes even though they are beyond out control.

We look forward to seeing many supporters at the game as we push to go towards the top of the league,” read a Football House message to Lusaka Dynamos Media .

Meanwhile, LD has announced charges for the game as K20 for open wing, K50 for grandstand and K150 for VIP. The club maintains its policy of allowing persons with disabilities and children below the age of 13 free entry to its games.

Lusaka Dynamos Football Club is a Zambian football club based in Lusaka.They play in the top division in Zambian football. It is renowned for its ability to nurture upcoming footballers into full-fledged players. The club’s President is Hanif Adam – a businessman and experienced administrator. All home games are played at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

The club was formed in 1979 by Hanif Adam who was a popular DJ around Lusaka nightclubs. He was also a part time player at the club, which slowly evolved into one that focused on giving youths from different communities opportunities, and then later sell them on.

Lusaka Dynamos has sold players to destinations including Germany, Israel, and South Africa. A number of former Zambia National Team players trace their roots to the club.

Lusaka Dynamos has also given opportunities to footballers who arrived as refugees in Zambia to revive their careers at the club, with a number coming from Rwanda and Liberia. The club a few years ago decided to change its strategy in a bid to compete for honors. The club has recently signed several star players from across Africa, as well as identifying potential stars of the Zambian game.

Lusaka Dynamos have yet to win a league title with its best position being 6th in 2007 while the club managed to win its one and only trophy in the 2008 BP Top 8 Cup after beating Zesco United 1-0 in the final.
