Written by on May 13, 2019


MAZABUKA-BASED Zambia Super league FC Muza became the first team to qualify to the newly introduced 2019/2020 National First Division.

The team confirmed its relegation from the Super League after a one all away draw against Lumwana Radiants on Saturday.

With only two games to go before the end of the season, Muza Muza only have eight points and are at the bottom of the table in Stream B of the national league.

The draw against Lumwana meant that the maximum points Muza could get were 14 and could, therefore, not go above eighth placed Lumwana Radiants who have 15 points from 16 games.

The 2019 league debutants have only managed to record one win in 16 matches with five draws among them holding Nkana and Buildcon in Mazabuka.

Muza’s only win was an away match in which they defeated Napsa Stars one nil at Lusaka’s Edwin Imboela Stadium.

The relegation bound team host Napsa Stars in their next match before concluding the league with an away tie with Forest Rangers who they also held to a goalless draw in the first leg.

They become the first team to qualify for the newly formed National League (Division One) which will comprise 18 teams beginning this august.

Other teams fighting relegation are Circuit City and Lumwana Radiants who are relying on their last two fixtures to determine their fate in the Super League.

Lumwana Radiants will be away to Green Eagles before concluding the league with a home fixture to continental contenders Nkwazi FC, while Circuit City play Buildcon away before hosting Nkana in the last fixture.

Lumwana have 15 points and only need a win to avoid being overtaken by Circuit should the later win in any of the last two matches.
