The final of the 2019 Absa Cup will be hosted at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, the competition sponsors Barclays Bank Zambia have announced.
This will be the third time the state of the art multi purpose facility will host the Barclays Cup final, having done so in 2012 when Napsa Stars defeated Power Dynamos on post-match penalties and in 2014 when Zesco United overcame Nkana
The development was confirmed on Friday morning at a media breakfast meeting hosted at the Protea Hotel in Ndola by Barclays Bank Zambia Head of Marketing and Corporate Relations Mato Shimabale.
Shimabale stated the final will be played on June 22 and that President Edgar Lungu will be in attendance as the guest of honour.
This year’s abridged competition will start at the semi final stage with a double header at Nkoloma Stadium, where Zesco United will match up with Buildcon in the lunch time kick off while Green Eagles will take on Zanaco in the second match.
