By MUKWIMA CHILALA
NEWLY introduced Teqball is soon expected to introduce a professional league to be played alongside football teams, Teqball president Dickson Jere has said.
And Jere says the first professional Teqball team will be launched at the Matero Stadium by Lusaka Tigers.
Jere was speaking during a handover of 500 out of the 10,000 face masks earmarked for sports teams in Matero Constituency of Lusaka which were given to Lusaka Tigers at Matero Stadium yesterday.
He said that the sport had received overwhelming response from super division clubs, including all defence teams .
“I am glad that most defence teams have shown interest in forming teams and starting the league. It is a good sport. We are targeting 15 teams to start the league depending how this coronavirus thing turns out,” Jere said.
“We want to take a team to the World Cup in December. We are looking at the way Emmanuel Mayuka and Christopher Katongo are coming up with the skills on football we think they are capable of going to the World Cup, so that is what we are looking at, that we get a team from Zambia into the World Cup.”
Jere noted that there was need to train more coaches so that they can understand the rules and understand how the game was played.
He said that the top 15 teams would be provided with the tables and other technical support from the federation.
And Jere said all sports federations in Matero will benefit from the 10, 000 face masks that the federation would donate.
