The Football Association of Zambia – FAZ- has embarked on a programmes to raise $10m for developing football standards in the lower leagues.
FAZ president Andrew Kamanga says the association is seeking to see division two and three football leagues get full support.
He says football is expensive and lower division clubs have financial challenges because they are sponsored by individuals.
Kamanga said this when he addressed officials and football administrators in the Copperbelt Province.
Meanwhile, Kamanga says FAZ is planning on realigning the lower leagues in line with football development so that in future division two league can run by age groups.
The FAZ president also says the association is hoping to introduce division four and five in future.
