Buildcon FC are reportedly struggling with operational matters and have not even kicked off their pre-season training.

According to the Zambia Daily Mail on Monday, the ambitious Ndola club has been hit by a player exodus with at least ten key players reported to have left Levy Mwanawasa Stadium that the.

But the list does not include their key striker Brian Mwila who is currently part of  a 30-member home-based Chipolopolo team camped  in Lusaka  ahead of next month’s FIFA World Cup Qatar Group B qualifiers against Mauritania and Tunisia.

“The team is beginning training this week after managing to solve some issues,” a source familiar with the development told The Zambia Daily Mail.

While Buildcon are dormant at their Ndola base, the other seventeen FAZ Super League clubs are entering their third week of pre-season ahead of the 2021/2022 campaign.

The league season is scheduled to start on September 11 after the August 30-September 6 FIFA World Cup qualifiers window.

Buildcon, who are owned by Ndola civil engineering tycoon Moses Mubanga, made their FAZ Super League debut in 2017.

The clubs’ business model heavily relies on foreign players.

South African midfielder Mpho Mathekgane arrived in Zambia via Buildcon in 2019 before swapping Levy Stadium dressing rooms a season later to join Forest Rangers.

Buildcon’s best league placing to date was a third place finish in 2019 that saw them make their CAF  Confederation Cup debut in the 2019 /2020 season where they made a preliminary stage exit.

The Ndola club finished ninth last term.
