Zambia vs Mali

Arthur Davies Stadium
The Football Association of Zambia has pegged open wing gate charges for Saturday’s Under-20 qualifier match against Mali at only K20, 000.
The grand stand and VIP tickets will be sold for K150, 000 and K300, 000 respectively.
“At K20, 000 per ticket, this gives an opportunity to the fans to easily afford this international qualifier match and turn up in large numbers to cheer the future champions of our game. There are limited VIP and Grandstand tickets. But that should not be a concern because the design of Arthur Davies is such that the greater component of the stadium is open stand,” FAZ Spokesperson Erick Mwanza said.
“We would therefore like to urge the fans on Copperbelt and indeed from other parts of the country to turn up in numbers for this game. The support of the fans will be important and we trust that the arena will be full to capacity with cheering fans who will be there to encourage these young players throughout the match. Kick-off is 15:00hours and as always, we appeal to fans to turn up early because tickets will be sold at the stadium.”
Mwanza cautioned fans against going to the stadium late.
“The capacity of Arthur Davies is four times smaller than that of the 40,100 Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. As such, the significance of fans going to the stadium early and securing their tickets and seats cannot be over emphasized. Let us all go early and buy tickets from the designated selling points at the stadium,” he said.
