He said contrary to the assertions in sections of football fraternity alleging that FAZ was lacking enough funds to run football, the football body was still appealing to stakeholders to come on board to support the development of the game.
“FAZ has been for a long time appealing to various stakeholders to come on board to support football,” he stated.
He also explained that the pulling out of certain clubs from the tournament is due to the clubs own financial reasons such as expenses of lodging facilities.
