Zesco United and Lusaka Dynamos will kick off the 2021/2022 campaign in the season-opening Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Memorial Charity Shield final on August 21 in Lusaka.
FAZ President Andrew Kamanga confirmed the news in his Facebook FAZ Presidents’ Column.
The league will kick-off with the Charity Shield on August 21, 2021, with Super League winners Zesco United facing ABSA Cup champions Lusaka Dynamos,” Kamanga said.
“We expect that after the FIFA International Window in the first week of September, the league proper will commence.”
The meeting will be a repeat of the 2021 ABSA Cup final that Dynamos won 3-1 on post-match penalties following a scoreless draw at the same venue on April 24.
Meanwhile, Zesco are back at their Ndola base after a ten-day pre-season camp away in the Eastern Province provincial capital of Chipata.
