NDOLA glamour side Buildcon Football Club has allegedly been put on sale, a source has exclusively told Zambianfootballnews.com.
The source alleges that the owner of Buildcon football club Moses Mubanga who owns Buildcon construction company has allegedly put the club on sale for US$6million (an equivalent of K96 million). It is not yet clear if suitors have been found yet.
The Ndola side are yet to commence pre-season training with less than 14 days remaining to the start of the 2021/22 season.
Buildcon were founded in Choma as AM Welding in 2012.
Buildcon were promoted to the Zambian Premier League in 2017 after winning the Division One. Before the 2017 season the club changed its name and city, relocating north to Ndola.
The club had been sold to Buildcon Investments, a Ndola building company, after the start of the 2016 season. Buildcon had originally petitioned to change their name after the first game of the 2016 season, but were not allowed.
After their promotion, Buildcon developed a reputation as heavy spenders. They were the first team in the Zambian league to register more than 25 foreign players on their books and frequently fielded teams of 11 non-Zambian players.
The non-Zambian influence helped Buildcon avoid immediate relegation, finishing ninth on their debut 2017 Premier League season.
Buildcon dropped 14 foreign players and added more Zambian players for the 2018 season including international Chisamba Lungu.
