According to the communiqué from the Football Association Zambia, the format for the Absa Cup (formerly Barclay’s) has changed.
The new format will only start at the semi final state. The communiqué also states that Division One Teams will not be part of the Country’s only Cup tournament.
The four teams that will qualify for CAF in this transitional season will also qualify to play ABSA Cup.
For a clearer explanation, the top two in each stream will qualify to play ABSA CUP.
The semi final will be played on the 15th June with the final coming up on 22nd June 2019.
